    Silpoly XL - charcoal gray

    Snap doors
    12' length
    Side pullouts
    3-pole kit internal
    $$$$$$$$$$

    My Superfly always did the trick, but I wanted more width and more space inside when in "hunker down" mode. 3 poles should do it!

    How much was it? I’m interested.
    Get lost in the woods and find yourself again. A vacation,to me, is working with your hands and surviving because of the fruits of your labor. In the business world I teach;in the natural world I learn.

    Lotta coin! $369.95 with all options. The 3-pole alone was $100 extra. Also added some dutchware flyz since I must have them on all my tarps.

    To be delivered Friday! I'll be sure to weigh it right out of the box, including poles and everything. Then without poles in case I ever take this backpacking (doubtful).

    Couldn't wait ^^.

    Ordered one myself ! 13' long in standard Silpoly.

    Should allow me to stay under the 10 pounds mark it I leave the dual internal pole mod at home.

    USPS missed 3/3 packages in the last 2 weeks, so I'm not holding out much hope even though tracking still says Friday.

    Very nice. I have priced out that exact tarp/options myself. Well, I might have included the option for D-ring tieouts, but otherwise identical. Looking forward to living vicariously through your photos!

    In the biggest miracle of all miracles, USPS is actually delivering something early. So it will be here tonight!

    I like d-rings (or similar) plus hardware to tighten, but this time I'm trusting the linelocs completely after hearing so many good things. It will certainly keep things simple.

    Linelocs are the greatest invention known to mankind since sliced bread. Simple and easy. Here's a tip: put a small knot at the end of the line that you pull to tighten it up. That way, you can adjust them by feel and have a visual aid on which end of the line to attach the stake too.

    Will do! I planned on doing that so it wouldn't accidentally slip thru and out. And more importantly to make it easier to pull with frozen fingers.
