This is a great tarp and is very light. It is possible to pay a lot more but only save s few ounces in weight. I purchased it because of the quality, price and light weight. It has more tie down points than many other tarps too. It is also more durable than lighter fabric tarps that may not be as well sewn and reinforced. This makes a great sun shade, dinning fly, shelter etc. due to the numerous tie out points giving it great flexibility in setup and configurations. Right now it is being used by a Boy Scout troop backpacking at Philmont. The 12x12 is big enough to fit 12 scouts under to shelter from the rain or put over a picnic table. I plan to purchase another 9' Noah for my personal use when I go backpacking or camping with just my family.
Wow! This thing is awesome! The only complaint, is that it's too big!!! LOL
