The versatile, ultra-lightweight Tube Tarp can be used in many different ways. A hidden zipper transforms the tarp into a tube-shaped, one-person sleeping tent, providing protection from the damp ground below and the elements above. The flame-retardant tarp’s reverse side is aluminized for wrapping around yourself for thermal insulation and is reflective for emergency signaling. It sets up in minutes and instructions are conveniently located on the exterior of the stuff sack.

Great value! I will by another for other emergency bag.
And I can now also attest to its ability to be used as an emergency blanket. We had torrential rain mid-day this weekend with a temp drop on an exposed mountainside. When i was soaked to the bone i used it to warm myself up, and then get changed under to get out of wet clothes. Then I set it up and was able to stay dry and warm for the night.
hammock campers: The tarp is split into thirds along its longest edge. I used it so that the length of my hammock was going with the shortest edge so i had a little cooking area to the right of my hammock. Not a bad configuration I stayed dry with a good raining even though the very tips of my hammock were sticking out and got a little wet (see the photo). In a really heavy rain I would split the tarp in half along the longest edge to fully cover my hammock, like another reviewer did. It doesnt have loops for this, but you can buy tarp clamps to do it. Other than that, just get a seam sealer, and this is a flawless tarp.
Tips from experience:
Seal it before use.
test configurations before you use it on the trail
I also bought later the UST B.A.S.E Tube Tarp 1.0, and it's 548 grams on the kitchen scale, with Stuff Sack ONLY. Purchased from a different Amazon product listing.
Stuff sacks weigh 12 grams and 16 grams respectively, so you could deduct from numbers above.
I'm still messing around with pitching options and rated 3 stars, as I think these tarps are "cool" but not sure I can rave about them yet. I think I like the Tube Tarp size and shape better than this HEX shape. But the zipper, etc are adding to the weight.
The product is amazing though, light as a feather, waterproof, packs down very small. I use it on the ridgeline of my hammock set up when backpacking. When set up, it just barely covers my head and feet, leaving me feeling a touch exposed, but still protected from rain. In my opinion, the stakes are garbage, but thats just because I use it backpacking and can't afford to bring heavy steel items with me (they function fine, just heavy). The guylines are basic braided cord, nothing special. If it was one foot longer (or I was just a bit shorter) I would give this product a 5 star review.
Keep in mind the measurements are from corner to corner, as in 6 feet diagonal x 8 feet diagonal, making for a diamond shape.
