Fantastic light tarp
Review by: climbingaggie03, 2010-07-13
I bought this cause I'm a gear head and wanted a treat, but it's fantastic! it's easy to pitch and it has lifter patches on the sides so that it lifts the sides up and out giving you much more space under the tarp. it also has beaks to keep out some of the weather on the ends. It's flexible, you can pitch it high on a clear night to give yourself more ventilation, or pitch it closer to the ground to keep out the rain. I did a 4 night trip in northern wisconsin, it rained every day and 3 nights, i stayed nice and dry and some of my stuff actually dried at night cause I got air flow. It's at a pretty good price, it could be lighter if it was made of a lighter fabric, but then the price would go up and durability might go down. It also packs down nice and small so i'd consider taking it instead of a bivy in the summer, spring and fall, it's got way more space and livability which would be nice if i end up spending an unexpected night out.
