    OES Winter Tarp or Superfly?

    For light weather I have been using my OES Standard and I love the quality of the tarp. I just sold my BigMamaJamba with the door kit because I would rather have the integrated doors, not because there was anything wrong with it.
    I am not finding a used Superfly, and I was hoping to get the older blue one. Speer no longer sells their winter tarp.
    I just found that OES makes a cat cut tarp with doors, as does Warbonnet, with the Superfly. I know I can't g wrong with either really, but what is the difference? Similar panel pull outs? Which one would do better in high wind, if both are properly pitched?
    Thanks for the help!

    By the way, last weekend the OES did great in high wind!

    is that the one you are comparing to the Superfly...

    i will say that once you throw in the extra $18 they charge for the panel pulls you should just buy the Superfly with them already put on... I am ordering a Superfly on friday so i have compared most of them and i still keep going back to the Superfly... the 12' ridgeline is appealing but no one seems to complain about an 11' ridgeline and at some point all that extra wiggle room is just extra weight...

    thats another one i throw in the mix... the reason i stayed away from it was the 3 stake tie outs per side... i just didn't want to deal with finding 2 extra places to hammer a stake into the ground and some places i have been finding 4 is hard enough...

    but they are all about the same flavor with just a few extra options here and there... i went back and forth but enough people around here are happy with their Superfly i just went with what was popular...

    don't forget to edit your little side bar since you sold you BMJ and let us know what you end up ordering...

    I know you ordered a superfly, but the underground quilts winter dream is also a great 4 season tarp. You can't go wrong with any of the choices listed here. I've got an oes 4 season and a wd12 both great tarps but the oes doesn't get much use these days. I'm sure you will be very happy with the superfly
