    But what are the advantages of this compared to the GB? Maybe more stable and wind proof? And, you would not have to bother to attach anything once in camp. Anything else? Stronger?
    Originally for me I was kicking around getting a larger tarp for more coverage in rainy/windy conditions. As it turns out, the doors allow me to carry a smaller, lighter tarp and it still provides greater protection than the larger would have without the doors. I use my doors year round, it can get nasty in the warmer months also and the doors keep me dry with my stuff off the ground in the vestibule area.

    I think we talked about the beaks, which are also made by 2Q/ZQ.

    OES Deluxe Door Mod

    Just got a chance to open up my MacCat Deluxe tarp with the door mod. Got it strung up in my apartment right now and wow...what a nicely done mod. Excellent workmanship. I can't wait to set it up in the outdoors over my Blackbird. I may have to get out yet again this weekend for another overnighter just to play. It seems as of late I've been hammock camping every weekend...I think the last four or five weekends in a row now! I'll try and maybe do a little video review of the tarp. I'm not real good with videos but I may have to give it a shot. The tarp looks fantastic though. Thanks 2Q & ZQ!

    I'll be backpacking at Table Rock State Park with the scouts this weekend.
    My MacCat Ultra with doors will be there. I'm really excited about taking it out again.
    There is just something to be said for the peace of mind knowing while it's raining, you and your gear are protected.
    He is your friend, your companion, your defender... he is your dog. You are his life, his leader, and master. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of that devotion.
