    My new Cuben OES with doors !!!

    I just had to post this one up.

    I'll add some pictures tonight from home. (Yes I know, But I have the proof, Just not at work)

    Yesterday my new OES Cuben 4 season tarp arrived.

    It has an 11' ridgeline, 12' long sides and is 8'8'' wide, 2 panel tieouts each side. Made from 0.74 green cuben. And of course..... cat cuts.

    Weight is 281 gram's (Just the tarp, no lines etc)

    First thing I like was the no crinkle noise, I've only ever had a OES MacCat Standard in SpinnUL and the cuben in comparison is like comparing a mylar space blanket to a silk bag liner !!!
    The cuben is soft and has almost no noise.

    The tarp pitches effortlessly thanks to a single ridgeline from whoopieslings .com and 5' tieout's on the sides with a 15' single cord each side for the two panel tie outs.
    Total weight for all the lines is 75 gram's.

    All I need to do now is add some snake skins and I'm hot to trot !!!

    Brian's bonded the ridgeline and has re-enforced the corner and end tieouts, even seam sealed the two panel tie outs each side.

    The doors are great, I can fold them back easily to have a tarp the same dimensions as a OES MacCat Deluxe or if the weather's bad just swing them in/out.
    There is a little slack on the door folds but I knew that would occur with a non stretch material, But that doesn't really matter as it's so quite (Unlike SpinnUL doors which I think would make a racket from loose material at the fold)

    It's a thing of beauty I swear it !!!

    Thanks Brian.

    9.9 ounces-truly remarkable. Mine without doors is 6.4 ounces.
    They are worth waiting on!

    Thanks all.
    It's been a long road but well worth the wait.
    Originally I had a OES 4 season spinnul tarp on order.
    I waited until mid March patiently as I had placed the order in the first week of January. Brian just had too many issues with the spinnul material batches he was getting. I was just about ready to pull the pin and get another make but Brian coughed up that he had his cuben processes down pat !!!

    Yeh these tarps aren't cheap but as I had forked out the original payment for 3 months earlier it wasn't such a big $$ hit to step up to cuben. I think the $ were well worth it as now I'm a huge cuben fan.

    Now all I need is a chance to use it in the field.........
