solid deal!
Thanks! I just bought one at REI for $130 but I'll take it back. I LOVE when Amazon randomly drops prices on something schweet.

Re: Re: Is a cuben tarp aided by being cat-cut in the same way as silnylon tarps?
Wow, I had no idea. Glad I asked. I thought cat-cut was done to negate the effect of stretching from moisture, NOT to get a taut pitch from the outset. Thanks!

Vasque Breeze GTX
I use the low-cut GTX version, perpetually on clearance at STP. Vasques tend to fit me well, and these are no exception. I find the shoe runs slightly narrow, but not enough to make wearing them an is...
