    They're expensive. Who's going to respond, "No, I made a big mistake." But I just love mine ...

    I just got mine today. Really liking it. I will post a new thread once I get my video uploaded to YouTube.

    I don't have one, so maybe not being on the band wagon means I'm missing out on the awesome cuben fiber party or something, but here's my thought. I have a tarp (WB Edge) made out of Silnylon. It weighs ~10 ounces and cost me $100. Packs down real small, really dang light, and doesn't break the bank. For triple the cost, you can save 4-5 ounces. If you got money to blow, or the absolute lightest gear is critical for you, or both, go for it. For most, I'd say save the $200 and get your basic silnylon. Just my two cents.

    PLUS ONE on what Shug says ... that Hammock Gear Cuben Tarp is mighty well made.

    Recognizing that there is no right or wrong answer to this dilemma, I agree with stefprez when it comes to small tarps because it simply doesn't make that much difference. However, I go the other way on huge, winter tarps, complete with doors. That's when I feel the cuben comes into it's own and saves some mind-boggling weight and pack size.
