Nice thanks for the link. I may have to start looking at this stuff closely. Pretty amazing stuff for Tarp Tent. Im in the process of designing my own. May have to go with this stuff.

Cuben fiber is very loud and noisy just in case you didn't know. Some people really hate it for that reason. It is commonly described as "crinkly". But there are a lot of small cottage industries that make tarps with it. I really like the Cuben tarps from www.hammockgear.com, Adam makes top notch gear for great prices. I own several of his quilts and a Cuben tarp.

Bigfish - I have talked with John at Bearpaw several times (and probably annoyed the $hit out of him) and I will have him make me a nest for my Oware pyramid here soon - seems like a stand up dude but I have not actually bought anything from him yet.

I have the standard sil nylon version of this tent coming to review and play with. It is a $500 tent but man you could get a lighter and way cheaper tent than this. I wonder how many they have sold??

It is really not even that light? I mean you can get a Squall 2 made by tarp tent and it weighs 3 ounces more for $1,450 cheaper.
