Good to know about. My next DIY project ought to be a tarp, which ought to be simple enough. A tarp is an easy thing to ignore in Arizona where rain is rare and/or predictable - but is pretty much essential other places I go out of state, and the benefit of shielding from wind cannot be ignored.
I am starting to settle my thinking on a 3/4 length underquilt, and have become quite interested in the te-wa jobs, probably their 20 degree "antifreeze". Looks to me like a 52 inch quilt will fit my 6 foot 1 inch body from neck down to mid-calf. With a hat, pillow, and foam pad under the legs I should be good !?
