    I just can't decide....

    I currently have two Tadpole tarps (his and hers) and find they are great tarps, but with the weather turning colder I am looking to close in the ends to block cold breezes. My problem is I can't decide if I should buy door kits for both tarps or door kits for one and a Bullfrog. I like the simple setup of the Bullfrog, but also the flexibility of the Tadpole door kits. I do not plan to winter camp in my hammock as I have a canvas tent and wood stove for that, so this is more a shoulder season setup.

    Re: I just can't decide....

    I've slept on it and have decided to buy doors for one Tadpole, and a Bullfrog and have asked Marty if he would customize the Bullfrog by install Velcro similar to the Tadpole doors. Now to decide if I'll sell the other Tadpole or not.....

    I'll get back to you after I've had a chance to play with the my new Bullfrog. It hasn't shipped yet and I'm in Canada so it takes about a week to get here.

    I would be interested in your experience as I am pondering a Tadpole with door kits versus the Bullfrog with the same length RL. Thx.

    You won't be disappointed with the bullfrog. I just had mine out lastnight. I have the 12ft ridgeline. It's really nice to have the option of closing down without having to install the doors. Even with the sides closed I still have excellent coverage.
