    Worth every penny friend. I had a "Mac Cat Deluxe" and had to sell it for personal reasons. Wish I still had it.

    If you want a ton of room under a tarp, and you mostly car camp check out the Kelty Noah 16x16. Absolutely huge. Will last much longer than the Target $10 tarp. And you won't give yourself a hernia trying to rig it.

    On trips when I don't care that much about weight, I bring my big HH hex tarp, but if I want a light tarp, then why go halfway?

    JRB makes lighter tarps. The one the OP mentioned is a Winter tarp which is heavier and larger.

    The JRB 11x10 tarp is one of the best tarps you will get .....
    yes it is $130 .... but you get what you pay for ... there are cheaper tarps out there if you look you will find them

    but as i found out over the years... you get what you pay for HYOH
    It puts the Underquilt on it's hammock ... It does this whenever it gets cold

    Hangin',

    If you are handy with a sewing machine and don't mind a little DIY effort (or have a good friend that is) and if you're car camping and weight isn't an issue, give something like this a try...

    or this...

    So far the the big blue cat has been pretty darn sturdy and held up in a couple of substantial storms...
