    OES tarp review

    Hello everyone, long time lurker, first time poster.

    After reading lots of the threads about OES tarps, I decided to pull the trigger after one person said it might take a while but you will get a good quality tarp.

    I ordered a MacCat standard in the middle of March. I received an order conformation immediately. After a week I had not heard anything about shipping, so I emailed and asked about the order, got a shipping notice the next day and the tarp showed up a couple days later. Total time from order to at my door was approximately 10 days.

    The tarp is very well made, very happy I got it, I would order again. No connection with OES, just figured I would add a little information to the site.

    I took this tarp on the AT last year.
    Amazing workmanship and absolutely NO complaints!

    Nice to see the positive experience with OES.
    Revolution is about the need to re-evolve political, economic and social justice and power back into the hands of the people, preferably through legislation and policies that make human sense. That's what revolution is about. Revolution is not about shootouts.

    I really enjoy my OES tarps from Brian.

    Welcome to HF! For me it took longer to receive my MacCat Ultra but craftsmanship are top quality!
    Never regretted this purchase and enjoyed great summer solstice hang near Salacgriva with my teammates from cycling team(they where ground dwellers) and they had been srprised about my camping setup.

    I have two OES tarps ( plus a beloved Superfly) and the quality is simply superb.

    You made a great choice!

    I have the MacCat Deluxe and feel it's as fine a product as you could expect to buy. I've used it a bunch and would recommend a MacCat tarp to anyone.

    Take it easy,
