I was really only expecting your basic tarp when I bought this product. I wanted it to be water proof and have some rivets so I could string it up as a basic shelter. Come to find out, it's got some pretty heavy duty loops built in, making it incredibly easy to manage. Plus, it comes with some light-duty rope and tent stakes.
Both its construction and well-thought-out design surpassed my expectations.
