I purchased one of these tarps in store before a camping trip over this past weekend. I got out to the campsite and ran a ridgeline between two trees, placed this tarp over it, tied one end off...went to tie the other end off, and the gromet failed before the tarp was even close to taught. The only material between the gromet and the edge of the tarp is a non-sewn folded over 1/4 inch wide strip of fabric, cut out from the nylon around the gromet. And that fabric rips very, very easily. Horribly bad design.
Also, there was a section of string on one side that, for about two or three inches was loose, then sewn back into the seam.
The best part about this product was that it only took me about two minutes to return it in store.
