friends. i have a problem. despite the other 3 guys making them, there's really only 2 cuben tarps i'm considering (due to the other guys being too heavy or just terrible customer service).
the 2 tarps that i'm looking at are:
small, small differences...
zpacks ridgeline is 2 inches longer.
stormcrow's will be about .2oz lighter after seam sealing joe's
stormcrow's slightly more expensive ($25 more)
zpacks has much more long-term experience with cuben
zpacks ridgeline is sewn and stormcrow's is glued
stormcrow's wait period is shorter
both businesses have earned my repeat business. both owners have humbly yielded a series of questions from me. there is no clear-cut front runner for me.
