    ^ I don't like the way someone at YMG has strung up Shaun the Sheep (top right), poor sod.

    The other thing that's odd is that nobody on this forum wished for anything for over 4 months (see posting dates). That's totally unacceptable folks...must try harder ;)

    I don't think they have made it to these shores yet so I've not seen one in the flesh, what's your experience with them @Ken T. ?

    Totally unrelated but just to say I like the new avatar @Meadows - just had a quick peek at the STAG site. Good work :thumbsup:

    Their stuff is OK. That tarp design has no mid panel tie outs. Would rather have equal coverage on both sides. No giant logo. More discreet color. Like a Mamajamba from Warbonnet for example.

    Thanks for your thoughts.

    Does a colour or lack of logo make something better?

    'Better' is pretty subjective, it's why we all have different kit for different conditions etc.

    Shame it doesn't have dimensions (that I could see).
    The weight of 330g makes me think it's gonna be quite short (like their latest hammock).

    I think it's 11'6"

    Just checked

    It's 11'10" x 9'6" so pretty big for the weight.

    It's just good to see something a little different.

    Mid panel tie outs and equal coverage on both sides were two main points you glossed over.

    Vote with your wallet. I'm sewing my own at the moment.

    Gaudy and free advertising is also something I like to avoid. Preferring a low profile.

    Hi @Ken T. Agreed that panel pulls are useful and more coverage in some instances is better than less.
    Apologies if it came across as tit for tat.

    No, no apologies. My post is a bit curt. But such is the nature of the inter webs.

    I have no experience with diamond flys, I wonder how much cover that would give?
