The Oware Cat2 Tarp

Here's a shot of my Oware Cat2 tarp at Ruby Lake last Easter - This tarp has served me well, but in search of lightness I have sold it and am thinking about the new cuben fiber Hexamid from zpack
Joe, who runs Zpack and manufactures in his own backyard did 159 days on the CDT with this tarp and it performed well.
I am talking to him about making some modification for NZ conditions.
You can see the stock version at here
I intend to have a roll-up extension to the beak - about 60 odd centimeters. Here's the coolest part, it weights in at 211grams!

Hey, thanks for you contribution - I monitor my blog weekly. I will reply with comments, ideas and suggestions ASAP - In the meantime, remember, hiking is an outdoors experience to enjoy, not an army boot camp training exercise!!
