Let me start by saying that this is my first tarp. I like the hex shape and the vestibule it provides in the A-frame pitch. I have heard complaints about the lack of setups this tarp provides, but in reality it provides the setups that you need. I have also pitched it in a few other setups that I really like. I plan on posting a video with my full line of pitches eventually. I took this tarp out right after a snowstorm in Ventura County's mountains. I was pleased with its performance. Haven't rain tested it yet, but snow was melting from the trees as I cooked dinner and thanks to this baby I stayed dry. I wish there were tie outs along the long side at least, if not at the center of each side as well. This tarp is awesome, highly recommended.
