    which tarp

    hey all. just curious as to which tarp all you BIAS owners prefer and find gives a nice balance of coverage and weight As of now I own WB superfly, love the thing, it has so much room , but looking at something a little smaller for less severe weather thanks for the input and thoughts

    I really like the Toxaway.
    I also have a Superfly and really like it but the Toxaway gives great coverage and packs down a lot smaller than a Superfly.

    The Toxaway has kept me dry in some pretty good rain storms..

    Hey Barlutti,

    I went with the tadpole to cover the BIAS, good coverage, low weight, and packs down to about a softball. That being said, I know have some cuben goodness on its way from HG, offers doors, works with my Ridgerunner, and my gathered ends.

    Cheers

    ya those two and the edge from WB have been what I was looking at so far. Can not do cuben yet, maybe next year. So does that mean then Callahan that you are selling the Tadpole? heheheh

    You never know The cuben should arrive this week. The Tadpole may be hard to part with...the kids figure that every time I get new gear, that somehow they get new gear!

    May thin the herd soon...will keep you in mind.

    Cheers

    I know, I know, everyone is tired of the GoLite Poncho tarp, but here's my BIAS under the 2012 model.

    Do I use this tarp in the winter. Nope.

    I have the GoLite Poncho tarp but have never used it for a tarp yet but I will give it a shot after seeing this.

    no, look the bug net looks almost covered I was really impressed when I started to think of how little you would actually have to carry. I know I am a wuss though, and I figure if the weather is bad enough to need a poncho, its bad enough I want a little more coverage from my tarp when I am hanging I guess. But for mild , no rain kinda nights, even in fall around here the poncho would suffice.
