It's definitely what you're expecting. It's huge and very durable. I'm not sure if I'll use the straps it came with though but I'll have to mess around with it more.

I bought this for car-camping with my wife & 3yr

I bought this for car-camping with my wife, my 3yr old and my 1 yr old. The primary purpose for purchasing this tarp is to protect items outside of our '89 VW westy from the rain when we climb inside to go to sleep. This tarp has met my expectations, which is amazing (for it is a darn pricey tarp, so my expectations were very high given the cost).

I have a backpacking background, I use to do Search and Rescue in which we would would do wilderness training every 3rd weekend. This is an excellent addition to a pack for minimalist backwoods hiking, it folds down very small, and I really like the integrated webbing for easy staking and the webbing in the center for easy attachment to a higher point (making a sloped cover).

I cannot speak to it's durability, for mine has had minimal use and what usage it has had hasn't (did I use enough "has'" there?) been harsh. What comforts me on this particular tarp is that when I fold it up, it traps air that takes a moment to disperse (like 3 seconds max). I like this, because it informs me that the tarp has a great "seal" for not allowing air to quickly escape boosting my confidence in it's ability to repel water.

Just got back from a 9 day camping trip

Just got back from a 9 day camping trip to Cape Breton Island and used this rain fly for the first time for our "mess hall". (20 x 13 size)
We had rain pretty much every night and some days of very strong winds. One afternoon when we returned to camp,
our whole "mess hall" (including the fly) where blown down and scattered about. We reset it with stronger rigging and
didn't have a problem after that!

This thing took a beating with no problems whatsoever. The attached loops provide a number of different pitching options,
and held up to strong winds. A normal tarp would have definitely torn out some grommets in those winds! Also,
no leaks at all, even along the seams. Kept us nice and dry during meal times.

Also, packs up smaller and lighter than a typical 2 person backpacking tent. I was very impressed and
will probably buy one of the smaller sizes for personal camping use.

This is a top quality product! After having used a very heavy 16mil tarp for camping, this thing is a godsend. It is very light, durable and keeps the water out. We bought this primarily to have as a shade screen and to keep our picnic table dry for camping (car camping that is) and it works perfectly. There are very secure nylon webbing tabs all around the perimeter and one in the center. There are no grommets to tear out. It also comes with these very nice nylon straps that are "Y"-shaped with a buckle in the center and several good stakes. This allows two points to secure a single tab. With all the nylon tabs and straps, this tarp can be set up in a multitude of configurations. With some paracord for a ridgeline or two and some Prusik knots from #36 tarred twine I've had this set up beautifully several times now.
