I'm researching tarps right now. I currently have a MLD trailstar but its not ideal for hanging. I mostly do 3 season backpacking/camping but would like to extend into winter a bit.
Could I get away with using a Warbonnet BMJ without doors in snow? I'd be in SoCal mountains in winter time, so it wouldn't be as severe as some places. Right now I don't have the cash to add the door kit, although its something I could think about for the future if the BMJ won't do it on its own.
