Great Tarp

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is a great tarp. Better yet Backcountry had it on sale for $129. Took a while to figure out how to orient it and set it up in the different configurations. Once I realized using the MSR logo on it was a good starting point it was pretty easy from there. I do like the lean too version with one side brought in closer. The full lean to is pretty nice also. Comes with the MSR ground hog stakes. My one wish is that it also came with some of the MSR Reflective cordage to use on the loops. I just went down to Lowes and bought 50' of it and I'm happy. My son in law bought a new camper and I got to show him my new camper! Awesome I love it.

Pleasant surprise

    I was pleasantly surprised to find that this tarp included six msr mini ground hog stakes and some lightweight cord. Nowhere I have I seen that mentioned in what comes with. True weight is 18oz. The stuff sack is a pain but I won't be using it anyway.

    Almost perfect

      Let me start by saying that this is my first tarp. I like the hex shape and the vestibule it provides in the A-frame pitch. I have heard complaints about the lack of setups this tarp provides, but in reality it provides the setups that you need. I have also pitched it in a few other setups that I really like. I plan on posting a video with my full line of pitches eventually. I took this tarp out right after a snowstorm in Ventura County's mountains. I was pleased with its performance. Haven't rain tested it yet, but snow was melting from the trees as I cooked dinner and thanks to this baby I stayed dry. I wish there were tie outs along the long side at least, if not at the center of each side as well. This tarp is awesome, highly recommended.

      No poles no problem

        This little number has been great for fastpacking in the northwest. I bring a light footprint along with it. I dont carry trekking poles but I find a couple of sticks that seem to do the trick. It worked well at 13000 feet in Colorado also. It comes with fairly long tie downs as well.

        Unanswered Question

        I know the old version needed to be seam...

        I know the old version needed to be seam sealed but this one appears to have taped seams. What upgrades did this one receive from the old version and do I need to seal it?
