    Thumbs up Stayed dry in Downpour

    My Tadpole was set a little high over the hammock when a storm came up today. The wind was blowing and we had 1 inch of rain in about 30 minutes. I was sure that my underquilt and hammock were getting wet, but when I went out after the storm, they were dry! Yay, Tadpole!! I'm used to a Noahs 12" and I've been leary of this little tarp, but it worked well.
    Keep movin', keep believing and enjoy the journey!

    Only heard great things about the Tadpole and know great things about Marty!

    Excellent news! I am doing the same kind of testing only with a BCUSA 10' x10'. I also have the Noah 12 which I will use for car/motocycle camping when I am setting up a long term location. So far I am liking the BCUSA 10. Nothing wet yet but have not gotten out in a good heavy rain yet.
