NOTES
• .5oz Cuben vs Cuben .75oz
The standard .75 oz/sq/yd cuben is what we has used for years in our strongest shelters and it has twice the dyneema content. The .75 can withstand almost any weather and is time tested in our largest Pyramids. The .5 Cuben option is lighter weight but not quite as strong. The .5oz cuben is a 3 - 3+ Season fabric for camping spots in semi protected /forrest areas or if high sustained winds are not a concern.

• WE CAN DO CUSTOM SIZES AND DELETE FEATURES TO REDUCE WEIGHT
Order you size and note in the comment field what size you would like SMALLER than that stock size.
EX: Order the Duo and note you want it 8 X 5.5' X 9' + any other changes EX: No LineLocks / No Grommet Holes

• If you do not want the stock sewn-on easy to use Linelocks and 3mm line - we will ship our smaller ultralight 1.5mm spectra mini linelock kit instead for free. Removing the 8 LineLocks save about 1oz / 30gms. Just note your changes in the comments field when checking out.

"I've been pretty impressed with my MLD Grace Solo made with Cuben Fiber over the past year. Just a month ago, I was on an exposed saddle at 10,500ft with variable direction winds gusting up to 50mph which often drove snow horizontally and I had no trouble - ~3 inches of snow by morning. And this was not the first time I had been in windy storm conditions with it. "

"Very light, durable, easy to set up, easy to adjust line locks, spacious, good ventilation, no problem with condensation. Overall, I just love lying under the open tarp, being connected with the nature. "

"But the part of this tarp that I like the best is the tensioning system which makes it very easy to set up the tarp."
