    Tarp decisions?

    Hey, I'm having a hard time deciding on which tarp to buy. I'm looking for a 4 season tarp. My main two choices are either to spend a little more and buy a hammock gear cubin fiber tarp with doors or if I should go for the cheaper option, a superfly? Any options and thoughts would be helpful?
    Thanks

    Go for the cuben if the price fits your budget and weight-savings is important to you.

    Go for the superfly if heavier and less expensive sounds better to you.

    I've seen both upclose, in the field (own neither). They are both excellent vendors and are both well-made, excellent tarp designs.

    Hammock Gear 4S is a great tarp I got one and love it. If its in your budget then I say go for it.
    Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.

    Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.

    Tarp decisions?

    I have the HammockGear camo 4S tarp and I sleep better at night
    Seriously, I can't think of enough good things to say about it. There's a lot of weight savings there.

    If you get a CF tarp for winter go all the way and get a winter palace. Otherwise it is too short to block the wind.
    I think CF is the perfect tarp material and and have a winter Palace for winter and one without doors for lightweight summer.
    If the buget doesn't allow that the SF is a great all around tarp.

    You can't make a bad choice here.
