- Has anybody tried duplicating the tarp tent that Youngblood has in his
photo section? Labeled Catenary Tarps/130 x 120 inch tarp.
I think it is actually 130 x 126.
If anybody else has made a duplicate or close to it, have you used it
in the field?
How does it actually work?
Using 1.1 oz silnylon, I calculate the weight to be about 27+ oz. If
you have made one, what is your actual weight?
It is intriguing and I am sorely tempted to try duplicating. Lots of
room under the tarp, plenty of configurations and I like the idea of
really closing it up in nasty conditions (that is if it works as well
as it looks).
The weight is a concern, but then a tent that is under 2 lbs with that
size is pretty good.
It appears there are 3 catenary cuts along each bottom and 2 on each
end. Does anybody have anymore information?
