    I have a tadpole w/o side pulls & wonder that too. So far, I like it fine w/o but might spring for Dutch's side pulls just to see how the other half lives

    my tadpole doesn't have side pull outs and i wouldn't have it any other way.
    the TP is small enough that the pull outs would very rarely be of an advantage (imho).
    i find the tadpole to be simple perfection.
    my larger tarps do have side pulls but i only use them about 50% of the time.

    I agree with flatline... I had 4 extra tie outs sewn on for a little more variety , very happy with it..

    I have a Tadpole w/o side pulls and could not be happier. The workmanship is great and when you mention service, WL is what others are compared against.

    I just got one this past week without side pull outs. I'm really looking forward to using it. Marty was quick to respond to all my questions and it arrived at my door after only 2-3 days. Really looking forward to more WL gear.

    I just ordered one and got the side pullouts. I want to have the option of keeping the tarp off me and for more control in wind. Or maby I could replace with a pole pocket down the road. We;ll see if I actually end up using them.
    Keep movin', keep believing and enjoy the journey!
