The taped seams on the 25 g/sq. m Cubic Tech fabric of the Gossamer Gear CubicTwinn tarp are really sexy. Overall it looks like a re-design of the Backpacking Light-designed / Cubic Tech-built Stealth Nano that was released ca. ‘09/’10.
Comparing the two tarps gives me pause over the weight of the CubicTwinn’s construction (e.g. the metal grommet). I have used the BPL version of this as my go-to solo shelter without any concern for durability so I question whether the GG version is overbuilt.
