    I used the 12 in that configuration for about 6 nights. Condensation was an issue on two of those nights due to improper air movement, read, operator error. Those trips were around 13 to 25 degrees.

    I tried completely sealing myself in - "doors" closed tight and pitched low to the ground - and found condensation on the outside of the tarp. In another attempt I had some ventilation issues and found my synthetic items more than a little moist.

    Proper ventilation is tricky - at least to me - but I guess I sort of figured it out on trips after that as I haven't had a problem other than my breath condensating on my TQ.

    I have the 12, and it is big! I would only suggest it for porch/tent/square mode as diamond setup with this would be nearly impossible. I picked up some snake skins from Mountain Goat (cottage) and they fit perfectly making even this huge tarp very manageable. If you just want it for diamond i would go with the 9. Kind of just confirming what everyone else said....

    I had a 12 for a long time. I could get it packed down to about the size of a youth football with guylines and ridgeline attached.
    If your lucky enough to be outdoors, your lucky enough!

    I had a picture of mine in the original stuff sack posted on a thread about tarps in their stuff sacks but I can't seem to find it. I know it is on my other computer, but it's in the shop. I'll keep looking for it. Look at the dimensions in the specifications on a site which sells them. That may help while I look for the thread.
    Keep movin', keep believing and enjoy the journey!
