    Superfly tarps is about twice as big when packed inside snake skins compared to folded nicely. A lot of air gets trapped when tarp is rolled up.
    It's still a lot more convenient with the snake skins.

    Panel pullouts are nice to have but I don't find them necessary even when the tarp is pitched close to the hammock.
