Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the Kelty tarp quite a bit heavier at 2lb 8 oz? The Superfly weighs in at around 19 oz or so....
My Noah 12 was nowhere near the same weight as my Superfly. I don't remember the exact weight and I've since deleted it from my spreadsheet, but it was well over the 19 oz. of the Superfly. The Superfly also packs down a lot smaller than the Kelty tarp did.
I really liked my Noah 12. I'm just getting too old to pack the kind of weight I've been packing on long days of hiking. I'm trying to go lighter where I can.
If your lucky enough to be outdoors, your lucky enough!
