    What WL tarp would you recommend...

    I have a ten day trip coming up the middle of next month in Pisgah and my 65 lb pit is coming along. Right now the tad pole is my only tarp. I was thinking with the weather unknown that far out maybe I should pick up another tarp with more coverage for me and the dog? I was hoping maybe someone with more experience could recommend me a WL tarp option or would the tad pole be sufficient enough?

    The Old Man Winter tarp would give you and your pup plenty of coverage. Having doors in bad weather is a definite plus.

    The tadpole has kept me and Reggie (my boxer) dry in quite a few pretty good storms. If you want crazy coverage, then the Old Man Winter is nice, but you should be fine with what you have now.

    The Bullfrog will give you tons of room and can be set up in many different ways.

    So I just broke down and ordered a 3/4 underquilt and the Old man winter tarp from WL. The more I thought about it the better I felt with the idea of the larger tarp.The ability to create more of an enclosure just seemed like a better idea for the pup's first big trip and I love cold weather camping so it'll definitely see some use. I do love that tad pole and I'll have that set of doors eventually I'm sure. Just hope they are still on sale when I get around to it! Thanks for the input guys.

    The OMW will give maximum coverage and lots of room. Very close behind is the Bull Frog.
    Both can be set up with one side pulled down to the ground and the other side set higher or in porch mode, to give snug but very ample coverage.
    Either is a great choice.
    The OMW (imho) is a better snow tarp, but I have yet to take my BF out in winter weather.
    All WL gear is crafted with the same quality and skill as your Tad Pole, so you really can't go wrong.
