    Grizz Beaks

    Thank you Donna for the 20D Silpoly Grizz Beaks. I received them yesterday and tried of one them out today. The fit was great. The poles are giving me a slight issue as they allow the grizz beak to slide down when I tighten them up (poles) allowing the beak to slide off of the tarp. It was so windy today that when a good gust pushed against the tarp and caused deflection the beak slid down the poles and off allowing a 1-2" gap when the tarp "reset" it's position. I had to readjust by moving the stakes back towards the open end thus applying more pressure. It's simply an adjustment issue that I hadn't forseen. I'll post better pics and a review after next months wilderness trip.

    PS-The colors are spot on for both the Moroccan Blue and Coyote Brown tarps

    Please excuse the crappy pics. I'll post better ones next month

    I took the Grizz Beaks with me to the Sipsey Wilderness last weekend for a test. We encountered light rain on friday night, steady rain all day saturday, and a heavy rain with gusts of wind (10-15mph) on saturday night. They performed flawlessly.

    Thanks for posting about the beaks because they're on my radar for a possible future project/purchase. I think I recognize your campsite. 209?

    It's actually the 206 shortcut. We were on the 206 when the wife "gave out" (started complaining) and we went off trail to camp. Little did we know it was the shortcut heading down to the 209. The area is directly next to the log jam on the river next to a babbling brook.

    This was my wife's first rain trip and her staying dry and warm really made her experience worth it all. We had cancelled the same trip the year before due to similar conditions and due to her concerns but I felt really confident about the newer gear so we went anyways this year when presented with yet another cold, windy, and rainy weekend. I'm so glad that we did. I really can't say enough positive things about your customer support and the workmanship of your products. I look forward to ordering our UQP's from you soon as well as some ridge line organizers. Thank you
