Both of the Typhoon and Monsoon are Camo, a heavy material, I really dislike them. I only set them up once stood inside and thought, I do not like this, at all too heavy too dark.
Plus now, I have learned how to keep the rain out even in a major storm on the North Oregon Coast. It took me a while to figure out how to keep dry, other members told me there was a way. I finally figured it out.
Anyway, I do not like them, they just are not for me. Kind of buy it, try it, decide, I decided nope. I never thought anyone else would want one, there you go, that is why there are so many different types of equipment out there. I guess I feel like my tent would do the same thing as the PHOON's, if I just hung the tent off the ground. My tent would be lighter weight and less dark inside.
I will take it out of its resting place list it and be rid of it. Thank you for letting me know that there is an interest in them.
Well, both the Typhoon and Monsoon are available in the light 30D silnylon (lightweight and somewhat see-through) and the heaver (and presumably darker) 70D poly, so if light transmission is a concern the silnylon version might be a better bet.
At any rate, I'll keep my Typhoon as part of my tarp collection. It'll serve a purpose (total coverage from wind/rain) that my lightweight asym and cat tarps don't. It might be overkill, but with the recent popularity of the doored "winter" tarps it'll be worth using if the conditions demand it.
