Yes, yes, I know it isn't a BCUSA tarp (which I would still like to get one day) but it was what I could swing at the time. So, put away your torches and pitchforks. Bought it mainly for the relatively light weight and the tie outs (lots). The price didn't hurt and while the saying "you get what you pay for" usually applies to most camp gear, this thing punches well above its weight class. There are three tie outs with grommets along the ridgeline / center seam, a tie out at each corner, and three more tie outs on each side. All the tie outs are equally spaced and the two edge tie outs on the ridgeline also have grommets like the three ridgeline tie outs. It is 10 x10 ish (118" x 126"), comes with a stuff sack and some paracord. Don't remember seeing any of the plastic sliders that are shown in the picture. Not a big deal, I'd rather just use a taut line hitch. Used it the first time this weekend (trip report link) It rained pretty steady the first night and the second night was very windy. Stayed warm and dry both nights. They do a good job of waterproofing the tarp from the factory. Not a single leak all weekend despite my pack getting shoved against the tarp at some point during the night. Was very pleasantly surprised that no rain bled through at the point of contact. The numerous tie outs make the tarp very versitile for use in a number of different configurations. I used a modified A-frame configuration, using a couple of carabiners to close off the ends a bit to provide additional protection from wind and rain. I used the 2-strand twist ridgeline from Bushclass as the ridgeline. One end tied off to a tree and the other end held up by a pole made from a small sapling and secured with a tent stake I made. Two additional guylines off to the sides provided stability to the tent pole. Perhaps the one thing I would change about this tarp is to add a tie out or two inside on the center seam. To be able to hang a bug net inside during the summer months would take this already great tarp to the next level. I will definitely be using this tarp again, have another outing scheduled for next weekend in fact. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a low cost, versitile tarp.
