My topic here is 2 fold.
#1. I have a Speer 8x10 CatTarp, and i am preparing for an upcoming thru-hike. i was wondering if a Driducks poncho is a good addition to have for weather protection underneath? is it really necessary to have added protection if my tarp setup could eliminate any weather from effecting my UQ? I am starting my thru in mid March, so I'm not really sure if the added 5-10 degree warmth from the poncho is "necessary"
#2. I have no sewing or DIY skills whatsoever, so i was wondering if it is worth it to pay an extra $25 to have JacksRBetter install the sewing kit on the poncho for me, or if an ignorant dude like myself could actually sew it on somehow. (that is, if i buy the poncho)
