    MacCat micro?

    Anyone done using the macCat micro with a black bird? Any pics? Hows the coverage?

    Recently used my MCat std with the BB and it was adequate, but I wouldn't go any smaller.

    I have a micro and it covers the Blackbird fine. However, understand that this is to me a more fine weather tarp and though it will shield me from rain, I wouldn't want to ride out any real storms in them. A great and fun ounce calculating tarp though for the price! If you are looking for real coverage - may want to move up the ladder though.

    True it does cover but no room for anything other than straight down rain. IMO it's good for keeping the dew off and prob a light rain. I sold mine. It is a great fair weather tarp.

    Nothing against OES tarps, but you might condisder the Wilderness logics Tadpole. It's a great summer tarp at a great price, and if you decide it's not for you I doubt you'll have any trouble selling it on the forums.

    I like my Micro. I've used it over my Blackbirds a few times without trouble.
    It covers the Blackbirds with a smallest margin of error, but coverage is complete. Agreed with the thoughts that it isn't the best in storm conditions. However, spring and summer showers are no problem at all.
    Trust nobody!
