My Locale Sunshine State
About Me Began hiking in the Carolinas, some in Virginia and now in Florida - much less variation in terrain, I'm sad to say, but beautiful in its own right. A Gatewood Cape w/Serenity is my primary solo shelter nowadays.

I'm also into kayaking & fishing.

Re: Gatewood Cape or Golite Poncho/Tarp & Bivy?
Welcome, Cameron! We'll go easy on you here. I love my cape! I prefer it to the Golite, YMMV. As to your specific question, I agree w/Scott and I use a UL bivy if I'm concerned ab...
