I have an 8x10 version of this and liked it so much I ordered the smaller 5 x 8 version. Super versatile. Spend the extra and get the silicone-coated version; it's worth it. Much better water repellency.
I'm very happy with the MEST tarp. 5'x8' and 6 oz. is the perfect size and weight to throw in my day pack and have ready for any conditions. It's big enough to offer short-term coverage from rain, sun, or wind. There are enough tie-outs for many useful configurations. It would also be usable for camping in mild conditions; it would pair well with my Borah Gear bivy. Very pleased to add this to my kit.
