    Micro users

    Do any of you guys use the micro with a single ridgeline above the tarp? I'm wondering how tight of a pitch it will get with the lack of a ridgeline seam.

    I have a silnylon DIY micro tarp without a ridgeline. It pitches nice & tight with ridgeline over tarp.

    Not really .... parts of roofs are flying around and tree limbs ...
    i rather not risk getting hit by something .

    that was the worst wind storm we has in YEARS .... it ripped shingles off my
    shed roof .... and ripped the roof off the guys shed up the road

    also the tree in front of my friends house lost a few limbs as well
    there all over his yard..i'm glad it didn't come down...it's a BIG tree
    we also have a 200 foot tree 100 yards from the house...i was waiting on that one to go

    But i did get to play with it for a short time today ...
    it does work with the WBBB but you need to be spot on ,on how you set it up...you have only a few inch to spare on each side... with the micro and my new 40F IX TQ my setup is ready to go once the weather breaks
    It puts the Underquilt on it's hammock ... It does this whenever it gets cold
