    MacCat Standard with Blackbird? Any experience?

    I am contemplating the purchase of a MacCat Standard tarp (in Spinn) for my Warbonnet Blackbird. Can anyone who has used this combination reply with any feedback either pro or con? Thanks.

    That's my exact goto summer setup. There are no issues with that combination IMO.
    Trust nobody!

    Thanks Cannibal. It sounds like a Standard should go on my Christmas wish list!

    I have an Ultra (Spinn), so I know that Brian's work is outstanding. It's a great tarp for windy, wet weather due to it's coverage.

    But, I want something lighter that packs up smaller for when it is "supposed" to be fair weather.

    for the record, youre not saving much weight by going spinn.

    i like the idea of being more stealthy, having more privacy and also being able to sleep in darkness even under a full moon, and worrying less about poking sticks and falling pinecones.

    here's a pic of my brown maccat standard in sil.

    Te-wa, I have to admit, that brown sure looks pretty!

    I have a Spinn stuff sack that I may try to die it & see what happens ...

    WBBB and MacCat Standard is my go-to setup in almost any weather, except Colorado winters. I've used it in more moderate winters w/ great results.

    Here's a MacCat Standard with a WBBB hanging under it.


    Hope this helps,
