    I recently paired the Darien UL with a HG Cuban Fiber tarp with doors - I couldn't resist the Black Friday sale. My complete shelter set up is way less than 2 lbs. and packs down to nothing.

    You will appreciate the weight savings and set up simplicity after a 15 mile day. This set up will be a great UL example for scouts who tend to over pack everything.
    I'm looking into a HG Cuben tarp, too. The combo of that and the Darien UL is tough to beat for weight, packability, etc.!

    Ahh . . . the anticipation of it all. Congratulations!

    Please remember to provide your assessment and pics here once you get it out in the field. You are going to be surprised at the packability and weight.

    All you need now is a Hammock Gear Cuban tarp.

    It is wonderfully light. I put it on my postal scale and it weighed in at 14.8 oz including the stuff sack and suspension, a scant 0.3 oz over the published weight.

    There's a chance I might get some time to take it out to the park and hang it tomorrow. We live in a condo so no backyard trees to play with my hammocks in.

    The 6' tree straps seem huge! The ones I've always used are from my Hennessy which I think are 42" or something like that.

    If I manage to get out tomorrow, and I can find the camera, and the battery isn't dead, I'll take some photos. I want to try it with my Maccat Deluxe tarp to see how it fits, then I'll know what size HG cuben tarp I need to get for it before this summer rolls around.

    You could shave a little weight by going to UCRs... Other wise I think that hammock is as light as you can get...
