Well last year I made my first DIY tarp http://www.rokslide.com/forums/diy-gear-modifications/49355-diy-tarp.html and took it to Colorado on my first elk hunt. It served me very well. This year I thought I'd up my DIY game and make a Mega. I tweaked the dimensions a little to my liking and to use with my Black Diamond Carbon FLZ trekking poles. It came in at 12' long, 7'2" wide, and 4' tall. THIS THING IS HUGE!!!!! I put a two way zipper in the back. Finished weight after seam sealing should be 29 ounces. This includes all guy out lines but no stakes. Enjoy the pics!!
