    That was one of the tarps I was looking at as I was deciding on what tarp to get. I had narrowed it down to the JrB Trap, HH Hex, and the MacCat. I went with the MacCat due to its size and coverage. Now if the postal service will ever get my MO to the person I bought the tarp off of I will be all set.

    I am sure the guide gear tarp is a good tarp. I got the JRB tarp because of the weight savings. There is almost a pound difference.

    As I said almost a pound difference. 11 ounces is 11 ounces. It may not be a big deal on short overnighters or weekends, but every little bit adds up. Ex specially if your doing a thru hike.

    It may be bigger and cost less but that is because you have the added weight.

    11oz.... base layer clothing, two evening meals, rain gear, 2 or 3 inches extra loft, pillow, double oatmeal for a week... all better ways to spend 11 oz than on an "economy" tarp.
