super fast set up / STP value is awesome

Verified Buyer Reviewed by solocanoe from ft smith, ar on Tuesday, January 18, 2011
I have been on the fence deciding what new tarp to get for my backup/dayhike GT UL hammock. The price / value here at Sierra Trading Post made the decision easy - very happy with the purchase.

The fast fly is just that - fast! I've used it as a hammock tarp, quick rain/lunch tarp, and also as a lean-to set up with a hiking pole - it's very easy to do and the tarp seems like it will be very durable.

I'm not an gram counter person...but the light weight is appreciated. I thought it would pack up smaller than it does...but it will probably last many, many seasons...so the size is a trade off for it's durability.

I'm undecided as to whether to try to peel off the giant letters or tape them off and lightly spray paint over them with an olive paint - I have the olive tarp...but no way they will stay. I like my camps to blend in...not stand out in the woods, but that's probably my army training.
