    - Many people find that a 'storm shield' promotes condensation. A properly pitched tarp will eliminate rain or spray anyway.

    - The side tie-outs don't have to be used. Some simply take that cording off anyway.
    I feel like I must point out the real benefit of the weather shield is not to keep out rain or spray but to keep out wind and keep in heat. I've never had condensation issues with mine. I simply leave a small opening unzipped above my head. In fact, I've zipped it tight and still had no issues. A weather shield makes a HUGE difference when the it's cold and windy. The value of a weathershield should not be underestimated in my opinion. I'd like to see them as a removable item that could be brought when the weather warrants it.
