    Then don't buy his tarps. This constant whining about something that's pretty well known by this point, the people who did business with him months or years ago piling on to repeat the same points over and over again, gets old.

    Brian is slow and his communication isn't great. He also makes some of the most robust tarps you can buy. Deal with it or don't, but shut up about it already.

    Both of these are true, but don't make excuses is what I'M saying. This should be on the site, and folks that pay their money and don't even get so much as a confirmation of that order after two weeks are entitled to a little moaning...

    Take it to PM kids.

    Opinions have been asked and given. No need to repeat it and add insults to it. It is VERY well documented that Brian's communication skills are far less than desirable. And yes, you are entitled to a little gritching...a little.

    They are - the people who did business with him ages ago, constantly re-hashing it, are the ones who annoy me.

    I have two of his tarps and will order another as soon as my BIAS arrives.
    Brian is an Eagle Scout, engineering grad, and who knows what else. I'm sure the young mans plate is full.
    I would suggest to those here that have it all figured out: write a book, retire, sit in your hammock and collect mailbox money (i.e., royalties).

    Happy Hanging

    That's great... I just finished my MBA, work full time, own a smoothie franchise on the side, and have three kids and a wife to come home to... And even with all of that I can find the reply button in my email box.

    He makes great tarps, and has poor business practices. The end. If you can suffer through the latterm you'll enjoy the former, but don't make excuses for him.

    Settle down a little. The guy makes great tarps. He rushed mine and I got it just in time for my trip, which was a great surprise.
