    Post your detail pics of the edge tarp

    I think someone sold me a chinese knock off of an edge tarp. I was wondering if edge owners would be willing to show some detailed pics of the tie outs, any tags, and close ups of seams and edges.
    Funny thing is they called it a MacCat tarp, but it seems to be a much closer match to the edge tarp. I did find a made in china tag but no other identifying labels of any kind.

    Thanks for helping me figure out what I have here!

    It's probably are chinese knockoff because tarp called Edge are from one vendor but MacCat from other vendor.
    You also can put pictures of your tarp.

    Here are some close ups of the tarp.
    You can see the stuff sack, tag, ridge line top and bottom, and a tie out point.
    Has anyone seen one like this?

    that's not a knockoff, it's an edge. we had a batch of stuff made in china a few years ago before we decided to keep production here.

    The cinch on the stuff sack is definitely Warbonnet, also the grossgrain / steel loops look authentic. The stitching doesn't look the same quality of the USA Edge's. I just recently sold my Edge tarp... fantastic piece of equipment.

    I'm keeping my Edge. It's too light and perfect to let go. I use it when backpacking and in decent weather as my go to tarp with a 1.1 WBBB. I use a WBSF when the weather is forecasted to be nasty or really cold.
