    Survived nasty hail storm

    Posted by Rabbit Hole on 5th Sep 2018

    My first night on the AT and 2-3rd time using the tarp a nasty hail storm with 75mph winds and quarter sized hail hit. It punched through a few tents, this bad boy held. I had it staked out into "Oh S^#*T mode" very low and it did great. I'll admit I had my sleeping pad over my head in-case it started punching through but it held like a champ with only a few light impact marks and the tarp got me through my entire 2,200 mile hike-of the AT. This thing will hold through any weather you'll encounter.

    Air feels heavier than this tarp.

    Posted by Ivo K on 28th Aug 2018

    I was amazed with how light this tarp was when it arrived.
    Tested it during a two days hammock camping trip in heavy rain and wind and it worked amazingly well.
    I recommend using it with Dutch stingerz instead of a continuous ridge line.
    And bring earplugs! (It can be a bit noisy when the water hits the tarp.

    Great product excellent customer service.

    Posted by Jordan on 16th Aug 2018

    I am always looking for ways to cut down my pack weight but was hesisitant to upgrade my tarp to cuben fiber because of the cost of the material. My only regret at this point is not doing it sooner. Hammock Gears craftsmanship is top notch. The cuben fiber hex tarp allowed me to cut my tarp weight more than in half. The durability of the tarp is great and after five days of rain and hail on a recent trip without getting wet I’m really impressed. This is one piece of gear that will never leave my pack. That’s not even the best part, the thing that impressed me the most was the customer service I received. I received several personal emails from a real person to update me on my order and helped me with some custom requests and questions I had, usually the same day I contacted them.

    pure quality

    Posted by Joe on 24th Jul 2018

    What can I say, this tarp is amazing! It only weighs a little over 5oz. Packs down pretty small. Exceeded expectations. I took this tarp out on a 2night backpacking trip. I expected rain on one of the nights, ended up getting poured on both nights and stayed completely dry the whole time. Can not thank the team at hammock gear enough.

    favorite tarp

    Posted by Unknown on 29th May 2018

    What can I say, this thing is super lightweight, easy to use ( only 6 main connection points) and 100% waterproof. Currently my go to favorite tarp. If you are cutting weight for an UL hike this deffinitly one way to save a bunch of oz. 12' ridge with zingit crl, ti stakes, zingit tie outs and mesh snake skin and I'm still under 12 oz.

    Can I give it a sixth star?!

    Posted by lord Hartman on 16th Apr 2018

    As always their products are always Amazing!! This is the second tarp I have bought from them. I would never dream of buying a tarp from anywhere else. The quality and value is out of this world! There customer service is also constantly one of the beat in the business! My only complaint is how addictive ordering from them has been; 5 quilts, two tarps, and a larg assortment of other odds and ends.

    Quality product

    Posted by Unknown on 26th Feb 2018

    High quality product. Tested during heavy rain and felt extremely comfortable under the 12foot model. Camo print is perfect to allow some star gazing at night but protect from sun during the day.

    UL hammocker's best friend!!

    Posted by Bob Moulder on 29th Nov 2017

    Coming from a UL background I thought I would have to forget about achieving the very low base weights I was accustomed to with tarp-and-bivy setups, but this tarp combined with other UL hammock choices will allow me to go just as light while hanging. I've used this tarp a couple of times and have been very happy with its coverage —it's so light there's no need to compromise with an asymmetrical tarp.

    Fantastic Weight Saver

    Posted by Unknown on 26th Oct 2017

    I have a big winter tarp, but wanted something smaller and lighterfor backpacking. I got exactly that, as I went from 22 ounces to 5 ounces. I loved this tarp from the minute I got. It is crazy just how light it is. It fits perfectly inthe snakeskin sleeve as well. With a CRL and tarpworms from Dutch, setup is a breeze. Since Cuben is opaque, I opted for the cammo color. This tarp provided enough coverage during rainstorms. I haven't been able to test it yet in a driving rain. This did exactly what I needed and allowed me to backpack 72 miles in 5 days on the AT.
