    A all weather tarp

    I'm looking for a light weight tarp, something I can put in the pack, that is also a good size. I want it to keep the snow off of me, enough for a night. I'd also like it to brush off rain easily. A good wind barrier would be good too. Any suggestions?

    For winter, I'd want something with coverage comparable to the WB Superfly. A number of cottage vendors offer comparable winter tarps to choose from.

    As Doc recommended the cuben offerings of HG and Zpacks are both great tarps but consider the widths for winter outing. I now own a winter palace which has extra coverage that I like for high wind conditions.

    +1 on the Winter Dream. UGQ makes some great tarps.
    Leave me alone, I'm only talking to my dog today.
