First Observation: Wow! This Tarp is wicked light 2.8oz on my scale that includes the Guylines and Stuffsack.
Second Observation: I’d like to state that I am very picky about gear and critically searched for any flaws with the Hexamid Solo Tarp. After checking the material, stitching and over all construction I’d have to say Joe’s attention to detail on my Hexamid was impeccable.
The above picture shows the ZPacks Hexamid Solo Tarp with a Western Mountaineering Caribou MF Large 6'6", Gossamer Gear ThinLight Pad and Polycryo Ground Cloth.
Tarp set was fast! Joe gave detail instructions for placement of the included guylines and setup instructions.
Hexamid setup required the support of one trekking pole adjusted to 46". I found the entrance height of 28” adequate and was surprised by the interior headroom. My biggest concern was for the Hexamid’s ability to accommodate my 6’4” frame when I stretched out... Again I was happily surprised.
I would recommend the Zpack Hexamid Solo Tarp to anyone wanting an excellent tarp that’s wicked light, packs small and doesn’t take a huge bite out of your wallet!
