    I purchased the skins from Gargoyle. They weigh around 20 grams. Had some concern how well they would hold up, but so far they have been fine. For this tarp I wouldn't do it any other way. If you haven't already, check out my TR for details.

    I actually love how clear it is. You can see what's going on around you and the stars shine through

    You are welcome to use any pictures from here or from the TR post. I even made a short video, although it's not the same quality as others on this forum.

    I'm looking forward to seeing how this tarp performs in the Winter. I was watching the post on the winter tarps Adam is making. I have a sil 8x10 and was originally looking at 10x10 for winter until this came along. Difference with this tarp is the side pull-outs. I foresee buying another cuben and selling the sil tarps I have. Believe me when I say you won't be sorry. It's like the difference of a sil vs nylon tarp.
