    Wilderness Logics Oldman Winter prototype tarp!

    I got the chance to test out this fine prototype for marty and the people at WL. Im sure some of you have seen it on the site but havent seen photos or prices. Well this is my review of it and I also have word that these should be on the website on wednesday!These pictures are from a cellphone because I forgot my camera when I went into the piney woods.


    this is a kelty sleeping bag, WBBB , field and stream pillow, and the oldman winter tarp.









    not the best pictures in the world but it shows you some. I also made a hd video if you would rather watch that . It shows alot of the information on the tarp. It really is an amazing tarp. And yes I know I could have pulled it tighter.

    Newt,
    that is a really sweet tarp. massive, i wish i had that thing last sun night on mt mitchell. i prefer a large tarp too. maybe i'll pick one up from WL and sell my SF. if i do i'll try to shoot some pics of both.
    nice job on the review and video.

    oh yea man I experimented with alot of different ways to hang this thing. I didnt have trekking poles to do the porch mode but i didn tie to a tree but forgot to film it. I mean you can pull on this thing too so it could spread even farther. Marty has another one. you ought to go check it out man. you will fall in love
