    Photo Review HMG Cuben Tarp

    Just took shipment on a new cuben tarp made by Hyperlite Mountain Gear.

    Here are the specs from the website:
    Dimensions = 11' x 8’2” x 6’ (length x width x bottom edge)
    Weight Tarp Only = 0.5 lbs (8 oz)
    Made from ultralight CF8
    Catenary curve ridgeline with taped, bonded and sealed felled seam
    Catenary curve edges for a super tight pitch
    Fully bonded radial double reinforced tie-outs
    Fully bonded double reinforced ridgeline tie-outs
    Two interior ridgeline D-rings
    Special D-rings on all corners for use with trekking poles in awning mode

















    Ran out of daylight to do anything further, so tomorrow I'll throw a wbbb and TtoT Switchback under to show the coverage.

    I'll also weight the tarp in its stuff sack with the CRL , prussic's and 4-6' tie outs all made from 2.2 Lash-it.

    If there is any questions or photo's you'd like to see please ask and I'll do my best.

    A little info on this deal.
    I order via there website on Thursday, received a shipping confirmation on Saturday, and the tarp was in my mail box Monday.

    paid $265.50 + $4.53 shipping USPS First class mail.

    EDIT ADDITIONAL PHOTO ADDED:

    OES Delux vs. HMG Cuben Hammock tarp size comparison:





    HMG Tarp with Tree to Tree Switchback deployed:
    Full coverage end to end.







    The more I play with this tarp the more I like it.
    Can’t thank Hangnout enough for the tip on using the LineLoc’s attached to all 6 tie outs points.
    They are a dream to work with once you know how to thread the line thru them.

    I have removed the CRL and will try the lineloc’s attached to the tarps ridgeline.
    I need a bit of wind to test their holding ability since I'm not using the HMG supplied line. Instead
    I'm using my favorite line, 2.2 lash-it. It's quite slippery in comparison.

    For you Warbonnet fans out there. Super coverage on the ends and the sides.



    So the wind did come up and the Lash-it is too slippery to hold in the LineLoc’s
    I still prefer them over a CRL so a couple wraps and a slippery half hitch later all is holding well.

    Ridgeline attachment.


    Corner attachment.

    looks great! Also sounds like awesome customer service. Customer service puts me over the edge on alot of decisions for gear, also price. This particular deal seems to have a good combo of both Congrats on the new edition to your kit.

    Hi Wags,
    A soon as I can figure out the lineloc's I sure will.
    From what I can tell right now each tie out point (6) has two devices.
    A lineloc and a walking pole attachment. The walking pole attachment on the ridgeline must be for using poles to support
    the tarp when you have no trees.

    Great looking tarp. You can tell they have have been doing this for awhile. Gotta like the fact you have yours in a few days.

    Give those lineloc3's a chance With the cat cut ridgeline I bet they would work better than the CRL and not give up the quick adusting from end to end.

    Hi hangnout,
    I would love to if I knew how they worked.
    I've never used lineLoc's before.

    I bought this for my light weight hiking tarp and would love to dump the CRL for 2 adjustable pieces.

    They work just like webbing going thru a ladderlock. They use the cord in place of webbing. I have them on all my tarps.

    Hi hangnout, thanks for getting back to me.
    Do you know of a website that might have photos on how to thread the line thru these device? I'll give google a try.
