    Real world tarp comparison - beyond the specs

    I'm looking to get a new tarp, and I'm looking for some input. The two tarps I'm looking at are the Warbonnet Edge and the Wilderness Logics Tadpole. Both have similar dimensions, with the edge being a touch wider and the tadpole being a touch longer. They're the same base price.

    So with that being said, anyone own or used to own both that can give me some more insight on how the two compare, pros/cons, etc.? I know they're both great vendors, and both great products. And on paper they look almost the same. But one would think there's a difference between the two that you could only know from having seen or used both. How do the cat cuts compare? Are there any little features that make one stand out for you more?

    Inquiring minds want to know.

    I have both and I feel like the Tadpole feels more durable cause of the material. The edge is lighter, I like the ridgeline more on the edge. The cat cuts on the tadpole are more shallow so it has more coverage on the sides.

    Thanks for the response. You say that the tadpole has shallower cat cuts then the edge - but it's also a few inches less in width then the edge overall. I would think the two might cancel each other out - but if you feel that the tadpole feels like it gives more coverage, that's good to know.

    I notice the most gain in coverage from the shallow cat cuts is at the end where the head and feet are
    from the ridgeline tie out to the corner ground tie out. So the coverage at the head and feet is more.
