I bet there is a dye out there that would work but I would think that would be tedious and messy...
    Sounds like its too much trouble, oh well - it was a thought.

    I have one, it works great! The color is not really white, more like light shark grey. Blends in quite well. Holds out the weather just fine. Doesn't mist through. Quite light for a PU coated tarp. Seams are factory taped. Edges are slightly cat cut. Stuff sack is twice as big as it needs to be. I prefer to fold and roll it, rather than stuff. No one who wants a 1.8lb 12'x12' tarp (and can sew two webbing loops onto) should hesitate to buy this tarp.

    a friend told me that it is actually smaller than advertised...that it is 12' on the diagonal, which would make it more like 8.5 feet on a side...does anyone know if this is true?

    Thanks,

    If it was 12' on the Diagonal there would be no way you could possibly set it up in winter mode and have room for a reasonably sized hammock in there.

    Lies, all lies. Perhaps, as with most tarps, it is a few inches shy of the advertised (raw) dimensions, but it's definitely more than 11.5'x11.5'. On the diagonal it is ridiculously long, which is why you'll have to sew on two more tie out loops so that you can hang it as a rectangle--unless you're hanging between some rather distant trees.

    12 x 12

    I got what was supposed to be the 12 x 12 back last summer or early fall.

    Folded in half the short way the center is 10' 4" and at the center to the middle is just over 5'. At the edge it is 5'9'' and on the bottom from tie out
    to tie out it is 11'6''.

    On the diag. it is 16' at the ridge line.

    There is a slight cat cut to all the sides making a extended point to the corner tie out loops.

    Hope this is at least somewhat clear.

    Is this ^ the preferred method for hanging it? It is one big mother and looks like a bear to hang. I fiddled with it a bit yesterday but my trees were too close together.

    I would have just assumed she got the hennesy expedition package deal at REI but the cheap came out in her and she wanted to get the Byer traveller to try.

    Ha. It's the only way to hang it it your trees are less than ~20 feet apart. This thing is like 16.5 feet on the diagonal. Plus, if you hang it as a rectangle (by the addition of two tieout loops), you can close up the ends in door mode like so:



    I don't find it difficult to hang at all, but I'm 6'6", I can see it being a little difficult for someone under 6' to hang it without dragging it on the ground a little...
