    As stated, Tadpole is a great tarp. I have had it in some extreme winds/rain and stayed high and dry. As for pull outs, I chose not to go with them and instead went with Dutch's clip-on pull outs. They work great and have held up. In hind sight I believe I would have gone with them sewn-in right from Marty. Additionally, I have a Grizz-beak from 2QZQ that I bring along for piece of mind and additonal storage at my head end as I clip my pack on my woopie sling.

    Good luck, post pics once you decide!

    Just FYI..... If you ordered a tadpole w/o pull outs and want them now, Marty will sew them on for you.

    So, I spent first major thunderstorm under the tadpole and left it in porch mode with the doors on one end. Not a drop of water. It was raining cats and dogs and the lightning was ripping all over the place...very cool to watch from my nice dry perch. Even got in a couple of Sir Arthur, shorts, in the process. And yes, Sherlock prevailed in both cases being uncommonly brilliant and all.
    If it moves, you can eat it. No promises you will think it tastes good.

    I got my tadpole last week. I opted for the pullouts. For a $10 option I didn't think I could go wrong. I have strung it up in the yard a couple of times. I am really impressed with the quality. I plan on using it this weekend.

    have had a tadpole for bout year an a half now. plenty of room, plenty of coverage. incredible rainfly! I definitely could see the benefits of the pullouts, allows you to stake closer to hammock without compromising headroom, and you get more rain protection by staking it closer. I think. Now I need to go set mine up and test. Come on rain!

    Bested another good storm Saturday night, with the doors facing the storm front, not a drop in the nest. Very happy with this tarp.

    I have a Big Daddy and pullouts are the way to go. It gives me a little bit flexibility in my setup.

    Hi guys, I'm planning to get one Tad Pole too, and since I saw a lot of users with this tarp, I hope someone can help me with this question.
    ¿What are the tri-loops for? , Sorry for my newbie question but I want to make sure that my tarp will have all that I could need in the future.
