    Remember that PM conversation we had? I'm still good with those numbers. Free bump otherwise.

    Kitsap Cowboy‘s Glasgow KISS tarps were super nice as well and had a storm flap. With UL fabric it would be a great alternative to Dyneema.

    For years I only used asym tarps. I would likely still be using an asym but went to the dark side (DCF) because of an incredible deal and my lust for lightweight. I was lucky to never get wet other...

    This is certainly a popular thing to say, but it’s rarely followed and still not really relevant. Yes, overall you will weigh less, and that’s good, but 50 pounds on your back is still 50 pounds and...

    I couldn’t help but notice the underquilt at 27 oz. Wouldn’t that be cheaper upgrade than a topquilt? An HG Phoenix could save you 12 oz. add a sitpad for .98 oz. unless you’re married to full length.

    As I understand it, the only difference between a Bridge pullout and standard is that the bridge is more widely spaced, correct? This tarp would work fine with a non-bridge hammock also, yes?
