/ Tarp size opinions
Any thoughts on what size would be sufficient for 1-2 people? I was originally thinking 8.6'x8.6' but thought I might want some extra length so am now thinking 8'x10'.
I'm 6', friends tend to be similar or slightly shorter.
Various in-use pics in different pitches:
id look into some of those curved-cut designs the little US companies are doing. what you gain in footprint will be offset with less flapping material. some awesome stuff coming out of that scene right now - if you can get hold of it.
id go larger than smaller personally, then you can seal down the edges with rocks/snow when the weather is truely shit, along with just getting the edges closer to the ground in general but leaving useable space.
whatever you get, trry and avoid ones where the guy loops are non-water absorbent otherwise they become an issue.
Was thinking one of these:
Good point about the guy loops given there are 20 of them. They look to be thin nylon non-tubular webbing. Hmm.
Will have to have a think if a flat tarp or a catenary cut tarp is the go.
Am interested as to how well HMG's cuben will go.
It gets good reports.
