    Custom Winter Tarp

    Had a chance to setup and photograph my new OES Custom Winter Tarp today.
    Specs:
    11' Ridgeline
    6' sides
    Catcut to save a little weight.
    Extra tie outs on the head end door and both sides for high wind conditions.

    Just have one pict for now this is Porch Mode.



    Hope to have other setups photographed in the next day or two and will post them with a short review after I've played with it a bit.

    Looks like it will give you great coverage

    I'd love to see some more pictures as I'm just about to confirm an order for a similar tarp from Brian.
    Is it made from Silnylon or Spinn ??

    Hi All,
    Had a chance to play around in the backyard today. Here's some more shots.

    Nice weather mode:





    Full Winter Mode: This is the entry side (foot end). The catcut allows entry without messing with the tieouts.
    In blowing snow this might be an issue so tarp placement with this side down wind might be needed. I plan to
    take my GrizBeak in case I need to close this end up more. I haven't tried overlaping the doors that might be worth messing with.
    With 6 foot sides I can stand straight up to mess with my gear. No nagging back pain from being hunch over. No need to shovel
    snow dams around the edges. Sides are steep to allow snow to fall off with no tapping the walls.



    Head End secured with small S-biners.


    Interior when closed up:



    Dealing with the doors



    Tarp to Ridgeline attachment:



    Looking forward to replacing this Kelty12x12 when there are no trees.


    Stand Alone Mode:



    Just messing around with the GrizBeak



    Overall I really like how this winter tarp came out. I wanted something I could weather a snow storm in,
    live in, for several unscheduled days.

    I haven't put it on a scale but this is my winter (pulk) tarp
    and summer kayak tarp so weight is not an issue for me.

    That's all for now. Hope you enjoyed the picts and short review.

    I like the bigness of the tarp. A real winter coat.
    Have a Superfly on its way from Breadon.
    Will keep you posted.
    Best,
    Blaze
