No misting under my Spinn tarp, none. I love that stuff! But, at $18/yard it certainly isn't the cheapest option out there.

Well I hope I don't find out to soon (heavy rainfall), but I will try leaving it looser some time if the wind is down. The OES Spinntex tarps look nice and I like the idea of lighter weights, but the cost is not in the budget right now . I have had condensation under the tarp even when it was hung high on the sides. If it's not buggy I prefer the bug net folded back and just breathing upwards causes condensation if the conditions are right. I was impressed at how well the MacCat Deluxe weathered the storm. I also have a 8x10, but I only want to use it in the winter for more wind blocking.
