Daniel B.wrote a review of Pacific Outdoor Equipment Shelter Tarp on June 6, 2010
Just returned from a backpacking trip with this beauty and it performs exceptionally well. The rain was coming down so hard my tent was wet from rain drops splashing up under the rainfly. This tarp was completely waterproof and provided a much needed dry area for general camp activities such as cooking and packing unpacking our bags. I set up fairly close to the ground so we would not have to much water coming in from the sides which meant we rubbed against the underside of it many times and it did not leak a single drop of water. It did seem a tad heavy to carry at the reported 20oz but after the monsoon we endured I would have carried 10 times that weight for the protection it offered.
