    I usually use snakeskins, but I haven't had time to experiment with them on this tarp.
    I use 3 simple loops of shockcord on my HG 4 door. While it is still attached to trees at both ends I begin rolling it at one corner. Then loop the shockcord over it. Then I do the same in the middle and finally the other corner squeezing out the air as I go.

    They work just like snakeskins but are lighter, cheaper and more breathable.

    BTW that camo cuben is going to be a big hit!
    I might have seen your youtube video showing your cuben tarp setup just this week.

    I finally had a chance to actually use this tarp this weekend and the weather cooperated with a rain shower. It performed flawlessly. And, I still can't believe how light this thing is!

    My camp mates were inspecting it and exclaimed, "I really don't see a down-side to this." He got that right!!

    I fold cuben tarp - then roll then it goes in stuff sack.
    Stuffing a CF tarp just seems to be too much bulk
    I personally gave up on mesh sleeves for CF tarps

    Awesome... thanks for the pics Mad777.
    Wish I had waited now for the camo version before ordering the winter palace tarp in plain CF.
    But then again, this is a good excuse to get a 2nd smaller camo one outside of winter..

    What a great tarp!

    How did I not see this earlier. I guess I will need to start saving up. I hope Adam and the supplier can work something out. I have been holding off on buying a CF tarp, but this would be exactly what I want.
