    Good News

    Just got that msg I have been waiting for ..

    A package was shipped to you on 08/03/2012 via U.S. Postal Service Priority Mail to the following address
    My cuben fiber tarp is on the way. Waiting time...2 weeks since I placed the order. Not bad since the Hammockgear web site says 2-4 week average wait.

    The only bad news is that it has been to hot to camp out. Waiting things to cool off here.

    Just got my 4S 12 ft tarp a few minutes ago. At first I thought there must be a mistake as the box did not feel like it had anything in it even though I could feel something moving in the box when I shook it.

    I asked Hammockgear how much the 12ft version weighs as they do not have the information on their web site and they told me they estimated it would weight about 8 oz. They were off by a whole 0.2 ounces (came in at 8.2 oz with stuff sack and repait kit).

    You can not appreciate how much lighter this tarp is compared to a Silnylon until you have one play with. It just does not look like it can be so lite weight.

    I had asked for a special non structural modification which Hammockgear was able to do. I had requested that they autograph the tarp in one corner.


    The workmanship is first rate and my I can't wait for the rain to let up so I can take it outside to set it up.

    I put the 1L Gatoraid bottle next to the tarp for a size reference

    So I'm not familiar with HammockGear - do they autograph everything - or did you seriously ask them to do that? - that's awesome!!! One day you'll be the only cat with an autographed tarp from them... maybe it'll be worth more when you sell it

    I asked them if the crew making the tarp could autograph it in one corner if they could.

    maybe it'll be worth more when you sell it
    Waited too long to get it, I will not be selling it.
