    You'd have an easier time getting a Chinook tarp IMHO.

    Just as large. Just as cheap. Just as good of a starter tarp.

    Aren't they heavier? Much heavier? Or maybe I'm thinking of a Kelty tarp or something.

    Mine clocked in at 2lbs 13 oz in a stuffsack with 4 Grip Clips (side pullouts), 120 feet of cordage (30ft ridgeline with two #2 steel S-biners, 10ft at each corner tieout, 20ft at both side tieouts).

    So, maybe 2 lbs or even a bit under by itself.

    It is also 12 x 14 vs. 12 x 12 with the Guide Gear.

    Should be pretty comparable weight-wise to the Guide Gear.
