I reviewed the order and stated that the product's dimensions were not what were advertised and the company immediately corrected it. The product itself is excellent. I would recommend it to anyone and I received it earlier that expected. I was very, very impressed with the company's customer service.
On a 3 night motorcycle camping trip I used this with my (also new) Aqua-Quest hooped bivy sack. I wasn't into testing the full waterproof-ness of the bivy so I slept with the head end under this tarp leaving plenty of room for all my other equipment under the rest of the tarp. I set it up with a pair of adjustable hiking sticks in an A configuration about 3 ft high at the head end and the other end with no sticks so tied out in a much flatter A shape. One evening had a big wind preceding a short heavy rain and the tarp did very well in spite of just being tied at the four corners with long lines and at the two apexes also with long lines (as in their illustration) - all with good but short aluminum stakes and para-cord. Next trip I'll probably stake the sides in their middles also just in case. The tarp folds / rolls into the bag well if you carefully note how it was folded when you took it out. Otherwise sometimes pretty fat roll to get in there, but that's my fault. I've found the...
This is a good quality tarp at a reasonable price. The size measurements seem a little deceptive because the stated size is the fabric size before it is seamed and hemmed to finished size, however that appears to be standard all through whatever is the tarp industry. All you need is paracord to make the tarp work in the obvious way. The stuff sack that comes with it is larger than absolutely required, so you can easily also fit reasonable amounts of paracord inside also. The fabric and workmanship are first rate, and it feels like a quality light weight product. The webbing guy anchors are well sewn. My only complaint (and it is not a manufacturing criticism) is that I would have liked it a bit wider, more the size as represented, rather than the finished size the industry custom apparently allows. I'd like to mention that, even though the tarp has a "stuff" sack, it's less bulky to fold it, rather than stuff it. Because it is made of two panels sewn together with a...
