    Yep, bug walls were another part of the discussion.
    Purchased a bunch of curtain sheers from WallyWorld and Amazon.

    And it is because of the bug walls that the zipper option is in the lead at this point. A few velcro attachment points doesn't seem like it would be enough to keep the bugs at bay.

    Looking at all those catcuts I'd bet it would be very tricky to get something(velcro,zipper,buttons, snaps, etc) to follow all those curves and hang properly. IMO it would just be easier to go with a 12x14 with doors for a true winter tarp. It would probably end up weighing less.

    May your mileage in the backcountry exceed your post count.

    I was looking to avoid the cat cuts all together and sew a straight line an inch or two back from the mid point (top of the arc) between each tie out point.provide a nice little overhang above the walls. Cut down on rain dropping straight down the wall.
