    Cuban ASYM?

    In the process of blingin' my hammock out. Got whoopies and dutch clips on the way!

    But I was wondering about this cuben stuff. Looking around I can find lots of hex configurations, and diamonds, but is there an asym config that would mimick my HH asym rainfly?

    I wouldn't mind getting a slightly bigger one, but too much bigger and I start cancelling out my weight savings.

    Also most of the pictures I've seen use a white cuben color. Any chance I can get something a little less... conspicuous?

    The cuben fibers really don't take dye very well. Therefore, translucent white or translucent green are about your only color choices. Makes you want to put on your when you look at it!

    Edit: I stand corrected: Click HERE Looks pricey!

    Pips, those bright blue and red colors are many thicknesses of cuben rolled up. A single layer is going to be much paler.
