Kelty Noah's 9 Tarp... Anyone else?
Anyone used or have a Noah's 9? What are your thoughts?
First I have only used this 2 nights so far... But I do like it (1 issue see below).
I have noticed a few comments on vendor sites and here that say the Noah's 9 is not large enough, but the thing is big. 122" x 122" Making the ridge line in diamond setup 172.5" Guessing the 9 in the name comes from the rough size in the mid of the edges. Point to Point is 122" but it has a "Scallop" shape or "cat" cut on the edges and I assume this is close to 9'... I will try to get a measurement sometime soon.
It seems pretty light (I am not an UL hiker/camper yet). Materials and build quality seem good (at least so far again I have only used it two nights).
The only change I would like to see is the addition of middle guyline tieouts. The larger tarps I believe have middle tieouts but the 9 does not have a center line tieout. So I need to add a couple of them I guess.
