Thanks for pictures of these tarp systems. I've been considering switching to a tarp for my shelter and these pictures really make it less intimidating. I'm leaning towards getting either...

Re: Re: Re: Dyneema at Thru-Hiker!!
Great news! I can't wait to see the Dyneema Exodus and Arc packs. Do you know how much the price or weight will go up (if at all) due to the Dyneema?
