Cuben is notoriously bad for abrasive and puncture resistance. That's the thin mylar films that are used.

I just got finished working with a piece of 1 oz cuben, and even the mylar film on the outside edges of that is pretty weak/fragile. Polycryo is much better in that department.

Btw, nice idea and execution of same. I'm planning on rigging up something inside my Tipi tent, sort of as a liner to take better advantage of the titanium wood stove that goes with same.

Polycryo works well because it tends to stretch over rocks and roots rather than tearing. The AMK blanket has some of that property too. I was enamoured with the polycryo option because a already own a couple big sheets. :)
