The tarpaulin is simple in concept and well made. The integrated bag for storing and carrying the material works well in practice, as packing is easily and quickly done. The guy lines are strong and generously long. My example was supplied with eight lines, one for each eye. The runners, which are manufactured by Line-Lok, seem to work very well in practice. When the tarpaulin is supported by poles, the poles tend to interfere with the lines at the eyes where they meet. As a result, line adjustment becomes more difficult. Provided that the poles are equipped with line eyes of their own (like the separately available Hilleberg Tarp poles), the lines can be transferred to those eyes, and then easy adjustment is recovered. In situations where the camp site is subjected to strong winds, it is straight forward to attach additional guy lines, and thereby increase overall stability.
