    Thumbs up ViDEO: Cuben Fiber Tarp by HammockGear

    A quick review of my new Hammockgear.com Cuben Fiber Tarp.
    I love it!!!! 6.5 ounces before guylines and such. It does not come with guylines ...so choose and use your favorite.
    So lightweight it feels like nothing and it is big. Was kinda thinking that I would not like the translucent aspect but it so cool looking through it at the trees, sky, stars and moon. Like looking through frosted glass. A bit brighter on the inside than my other tarps but for that kinda light weight....I will take that. Throw a shirt or something on top and all is mighty fine.
    Cuben is the newest wonder fabric and is expensive. I am an old man and spend my money on lightweight gear to help lighten my pack load.....that plus careful packing.
    All secure and lighter in sector seven,

    If it weighed more I could use one to balance out my gear trailer.
    I am sure it is a great tarp though.

    And Shug as always awsome video....

    Wow! That thing is light and light (as in weight and transparency) Great review, and looks to be a great tarp.
    Good luck,
