    Do you have a pic of it next to the WBBB, where both it's packed(for size comparison)
    Hi Bo,
    The HMG comes in a rather large cuben stuffsack.
    The tarp was folded not randomly stuffed approx size 8"x11"x1.5" (20.3cm X 27.9cm X 3.8cm)
    Heck I could pack the tarp and WB traveler hammock in it.

    I probably won't use the HMG stuffsack for the tarp. It's the right size for extra cloths or a food bag.
    I have several small zpack's cuben stuffsacks that I believe will work better.

    First photo after opening the pachage.

    Very nice lookin tarp you got there OutandBack, very nice indeed! You are right it is a great size tarp, and the comparison with the OES Deluxe was a great visual! Thanks for postin!!!! The extra ring tie out for the tip of a hiking pole is a great addition as it makes setting it up with hiking poles super easy, I had them on one of my tarps!

    MLD uses the same line locks. I tighten them then use a slippery half hitch around the working part of the line. Tension on the line keeps the knot tight

    Yep, that's my guess. I have two sets of snowshoeing pole and neither fit very well. Hiking poles must have a smaller diameter tip.
