    Yeah it seems it may not be that reliable of a material.... stinks

    Not only do you cover pretty much all of the tarps, but you have video visuals to go along with it.

    I am really looking forward to when you get your cuben tarp from Hammockgear. Being that there is no sewing and they use a lighter fabric, Iím sure you are going to have a new favorite.

    Thanks a lot for taking the time to make these articles.

    Great info!

    WM,

    Thanks for the blogs, they are great. This one, for me at least, was the most needed; as I am looking into different tarps to replace my intro gear. Having the different examples in one spot will make my research easier.

    If your not going to be using your corner, I may need to got to work to finance a new piece of equipment.

    Keep the blogs coming!

    LOL I'm not using my corner for equipment right now... of course I have been frequenting that corner for my upcoming wedding reception in 2013. Clearly, wedding receptions are recession proof.

    Sweetness... Shipping Notice... Winter Palace should be in my hands before the weekend!

    Filming will start this weekend. Final video should be out the second week in November... I want to get some testing on this tarp on my next trip.
