    I have the outside mod and haven't had any trouble with it. I've read that folks that hang in the colder/snowier climes have concern that the outer mod creates more of a flat spot on the tarp. The inner mod I suspect would be more rounded because the poles go from one side to the other instead of pulling up the top area of the tarp.

    What Skip said is spot on. I have both and like them for different reasons. I like the way the OS poles open up the interior space of my winter tarp and still sheds water and light snow well. If heavy snow or rain is forecast then I'll use the IS poles for better support and shed angle as well as opening up the interior for more room while riding out the weather. I only use the IS poles on my 3 season tarp. The sides can still be pulled down for more weather protection or raise one side for porch mode. For warm summer nights I'll put both sides in porch mode for better ventilation. The IS poles support the tarp so you can adjust the porch mode height to what ever you like because you don't need a trekking pole or stick for support.
