    Can we talk about cuben tarps again? We can talk YT and its problems anywhere.

    I've got one of the OES Cuben MacCat Deluxe's like Angrysparrow's. I love it, especially in the summertime.

    My ONLY complaint (if you could call it that) is that it's a little bit bright, even though it's supposed to be olive drab. I spent one night watching the full moon through the tarp (could even see some stars). Pretty bright for sleeping... I think I may start wearing a sleep mask to block the brightness and sleep better.

    I like being able to watch the stars and would like a tarp I could see thru. Would be different.

    Would you say it's transparent enough to get a sunburn if you fell asleep mid-day under it? Granted we're talking about a sunny sunburn potential kinda day.

    Not sure about sunburn... but the sun was definitely shining brightly through it. I'm sure if the moon was bright enough I would have seen it as well. But I'm able to sleep through most conditions... ask my fiance... she hates that I can nap anywhere randomly.

    A beauty of a tarp. Okay, now who wants to sell me their SpinnUL tarp so they can go buy a Cuben from Brian? I'm thinking MacCat Standard. Anyone?

    Is the cuben fabric noisy to the touch or in the wind?

    I thought in the video that I was hearing a crackling sound when you would touch it. Not sure if it was the fabric or just the wind.

    Not really that noisy at all to be honest. In fact I was completely surprised at how not noisy it was in the gusting wind.

    EDIT: I rewatched the video... the crinkling you are hearing is me walking on dead dried up leaves.
