If the weather turns bad you have a place where several can gather.
Instead of everyone retreating to their little patch of shelter.
When I kayak in the desert my 12x12 Kelty was always the gathering place.
Shade is hard to find in the desert.
I think I will get a lot of use out of this tarp I would buy it again and can't think of any changes I would make.
At the Colorado Winter Hang(The Heart of WB Country)
I got to see several Superfly's in action.
Very different design compared to this tarp, very well made.
