    I added doors to my profly. I never got wet under my profly before I added doors, I just figured I would eventually and wanted the extra option. I have only used my tarp a few times since I added doors, but I like them so far.

    The only thing I regret is trying to do a rolled hem on the cat cut edge that matches up with the end of the tarp. That was a PITA. If you have the extra $$ to spend (I did not) on grosgrain, I would use that to finish the edges instead of a rolled seam. Just my 0.02.

    Slow walker, I only added doors because a new tarp with better coverage is not in my future, at least for awhile.

    If I could, I would just buy a tarp with more coverage for bad weather, and use my profly as purchased for good weather.

    It is heavy compared to better tarps, but it is what I already have. Doors did not make it lighter, but now I have slightly better coverage.

    Just thought that I should add this as a disclaimer.

    That's what I did. Got a FastFly because I thought it was a DryFly and then only bought because I needed one THAT day.

    It got me by but going to a full tarp with doors is just the bee's knees and it's still a 1/4lb lighter than my ENO.

    Definitely holding onto the ENO as a loaner tarp though, it's really not bad, just heavy for what they are but they are also decently priced.

    Slow walker, that sounds like a good plan. It is my plan once I am no longer a student. I just sewed on doors to get me by until then.

    Slo, I agree with you. I will keep my profly in the future for a loaner. It really is not bad other than the weight. The coverage is not awesome, but I've pitched low to the ground in some pretty hard rains and stayed dry. There are just better tarps out there.
