I know this has been touched on a bit in the past, but I wanted to get some fresh opinions on the subject.
I would not consider myself an ultra light hiker (more of a lightweight hiker) but I do hate carrying too much extra gear, especially if it is redundant. To this end, I occasionally consider getting a few campmor/golite poncho tarps to use as a cover for my hammocks. I think the idea has surfaced again for me since I recently got a couple hammocks for my twin girls to use.
So what are your thoughts?
