    Talking Zpacks Tarp

    My 4 Season - Zpacks Tarp came in today! (Along with - Dutch Hooks, Dutch Flyz, Zing-it, Z-line, Carbon Fiber Toggles, some Cuben Stuff Sacks, and a copy of Planet Walker, which a friend sent. I also got mesh tarp-skins in the post two days ago.) All-in-all, a lot more came in the mail today than expected - but hey, I'm not complaining! Seam sealant is drying - everything else is all set up.

    Anyway - excited to post a video preview of the tarp and tarp accessories. Hopefully in a month or two I can come back and post one big review of the whole UL set-up after some more serious field testing.

    Pics as soon as the weather clears up a bit!

    (Now to find my PIF I'm a week late on sending out Yikes - totally forgot!)

    Very nice looking forward to the vid
    Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.

    Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.

    when you say 4 season do you mean the hammock tarp with doors? man that is so much real estate for 7.5 ozs (which is what it'll be around after adding guylines and seam sealer...

    Aye Wags, the hammock tarp with doors.
    Thru-hikers apparently have had to deal with the most heavy rain in almost ten years this season, and I was out in the guide gear when we had flash flooding and even in that behemoth I was nervous about potentially getting my down quilts wet. Very glad I chose the 4 season, it really was the most real-estate for the least weight

    I'm taking it out tonight!
