    Perhaps if that's the last item in your pack your are looking to lighten up on. There are far more things that shave more weight than a few ounces lighter for a tarp.

    It saves a few ounces and doesn't stretch like silnylon when wet.

    Weigh you're options and your wallet and decide if that's worth it.

    xcrazydx has his feet planted firmly in reality, so listen up. Then go buy a tarp; they're worth it. Good luck!
