    Now that's what I call Cuben Coverage. That's a massive tarp. Very nice. Love the cat cut in the RL I hear it really does a great job at keeping the RL taught. Gonna have to get me one of those. I love the work they do over at Hammock Gear. So nice and pretty.
    Enjoy staying nice and dry under that tarp.

    Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.

    Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.

    Great pics!

    Hi there Ironman and all. Those are some awesome photos! I love the storm looming in the background. Don't be surprised if some of them make it to our website....Probably not the one of you in a skirt though....

    Regarding the price and dimensions of the tarp.... It is only possible to get 54 inches (137cm) consistently from a roll of CF3 material. That is the nature of the beast. Approximately 1inch (2.54cm) is used for each of the three seams. Approximately .75 inches (1.9cm) is used for the rolled hem around the perimeter. The extra width is gained by using 2 quarter strips of CF3 material that are 54/4 wide (13.5 inches or 34.3cm) and 13 feet (156 inches or 396.25cm) long. Also there is a 3 inch catenary cut along the length of the ridgeline. So what do all of these dimensions add up to?

    Width: ~10'6" (126 inches or 320 cm)
    Length (corner to corner): ~13' (156 inches or 396.25 cm)
    Length (ridgeline): ~11' (132 inches or 330.2 cm)

    There are 5 tie outs on each side spaced evenly every 39 inches (99 cm) starting and ending with the corners.

    the 4 panel tie outs are approximately 2 feet (24 inches or 61 cm) down from the ridgeline and 4 feet (48 in or 122 cm) between each other.

    All of the tie outs are reinforced, bonded, and/or sewn. The tie outs will basically take just about anything short of tripping over them on your way to recycle water in the middle of the night. ...

    This tarp, along with all of our CF3 tarps uses .52 oz/square yd (CT1K.08) olive green material. We generally keep this material in stock but i am happy to make a tarp out of a different color or heavier grade material if someone wants it. Also, there is a little more wait for this this one. Please allow a 4-5 weeks for delivery. Sorry.

    "ok, but how much does it cost already??!" Alright, alright, simmer down.

    Currently we are charging $369 for this tarp. I know, ouch Also, I am only offering it for a limited time due to the time and care it takes to make it. I will probably not even put it up on the website for now. If anyone IS interested in getting one or has any questions, shoot me an email.

    P.S. If anyone has time to decipher the above dimensions and post it in a nicely drawn format that can be inserted into this thread so that people can get a visual of the tarp, well, that would be pretty cool... I am short on time right now and I know some of you guys are awesome computer artists....i will show my thanks...

    Stormcrow I'm glad you answered the questions on the dimensions since it's so light that I would have had trouble keeping it still to measure on my living room floor with the air conditioning blowing.

    As you could see in the photos I was lucky to get the tarp up for some photos with the thunder storms rolling through the area. For those of you not familar with Tampa Bay area of Florida this is the "official" lightning capital of the United States. Average of 4 people get hit each year.

    As for the "skirt".... Maybe I'll do as Paul Perez (watermonkey) does and go with a kilt. Certainly cooloer in this Florida heat and humidity. When photos taken heat index was 100`

    I am impressed.

    However, Is that a blue Cuben dress you are fashioning?

    i can see you are easily impressed. the tarp is not that great. its light, but not that light. i feel you were tricked into paying what you paid. So as a good HF member i will buy it from you so you can get a better tarp. no need to thank me now. take care (of my tarp) KK
    It's not procrastinating, its proactively delaying the implementation of the energy-intensive phase of the project until the enthusiasm factor is at its maximum effectiveness.

    KK..... You are right ...it's not "that light", but it's light enough to allow me to carry an extra Snicker's bar or 2 on the trail. As for the price... when you're into the 2nd hour of a climb I bet you would give almost anything ($$) to lower the weight of your pack ...I've been there done that.

    I'll take very good care of "your" tarp, but I'm guessing my price just increased after reading Stormcrow's post about limiting production.

    I just sent my payment for the 11' x 10' wide cuben tarp with doors. 8.75 oz.

    Wow. If I like this as well as I think I will, I may just have to sell my spinUL BMJ.
