Is it possible to pitch a cat cut tarp Lean-to style and get a tight pitch?
I ask, because I'm looking at 8'x10' tarps, and the Spinntwinn is most appealing for the weight and price. Sometimes, on nice days, I like to throw up a Lean-to for the views. But since Spinnaker is a loud fabric, if the pitch wasn't tight, it could be quite noisy.
I've considered ordering fabric and making my own Spinnaker 8'x10' flat tarp, but the not cat cut would be more difficult to pitch A-Frame style and keep it tight enough not to flap and crackle in any wind.
I also priced out a Cuben 8'x10' Super Tarp from MLD, but while I could spend some of my tax return on that, I think for the price, I'd live in constant fear of damaging it.
I could certainly go with a flat sylnylon tarp, but BPL has made me such a weight-obsessive that the extra 4-5 oz for that make me cringe.
And to think 2 years ago I was carrying a Big Agnes tent that weighed 3.75lbs and was pleased with that.
