MLD has held up for 7 years
I'm still using my MLD cuben fiber Grace Solo tarp from early 2008, so you can guess what I like. That said, list the differences and see if any matter to you.

Mountain Laurel Designs Superlight
When I lost my old bivy sack early on in my 2009 PCT thru-hike, MLD was quick to ship me this one when I explained my situation. Mine weighs 6.5oz with the stuff sack and the cord used to pull the ...
