Re: WTB: Tarptent Rainshadow 2 or Cloudburst 3

Re: Don't shoot me - quick question on tarp stakes
Quick answer-Groundhogs hold great, but kill your hands driving them in and pulling them out. Shepherd hooks dont hold as well, but are light as can be. Bent a few, lost a few. Ruta Locura are my f...

WTB: ZPacks cuben ground cloth

Re: Re: Re: re: base weight
