    Pics of Standard Green Cuben Tarp?

    Does anyone have any recent pictures of their cuben tarps (standard green)?

    I checked around the forums and most of the new pictures from this year are of the camo.

    I'm curious to see how much more see through the green is compared to say the old black ones (which look more white/gray).

    Thanks!

    I bet if you email Adam or Jenny they can give you an idea of the shade if no photos are forthcoming here.

    I thought I saw a pick of one on the ZPack.com. It was olive drab and very see through. [IMG]http://www.zpacks.com/large_image.shtml?materials/woodland_cuben_l.jpg

    Ahh why didn't I think of that, great idea. I'll give them a call.

    Wow wisp, that olive one is really clear. I definitely need to see these tarps before dropping the money on them.

    Thanks for the help, guys.

    What do you want to see?

    I haven't seen the camo in person, but I've seen the other colors and have a difficult time telling them apart. If somebody says their CF tarp is green, my response is usually, "If you say so." Maybe if I saw them side-by-side I could tell the difference.

    I think no matter what color you end up choosing it will be fairly translucent. I have had cuben in blue, black, olive, white, etc., My HG tarp is actually white by request because I really enjoy how much light it lets through.

    Well mainly, the pics for the winter palace on the website is really translucent, almost glassy, whereas the 4S/Hex pics are more "white", which I personally prefer (I later learned this white tarp is actually black ).

    I've also seen pics here of a blue cuben tarp that's really really blue.

    So Standard Green to me could be any of the following:
    White tarp w very slight hint of green
    Glassy translucent with green tint
    Plain Simple Green

    In the end, a fellow HG member sent me some visuals via email so I'm all set and placed my order.

    FYI, it looks more white than anything.
