Nick - Are you saying the Gatewood Cape does not provide enough coverage as a tarp? Or that set-up and take down will get you wet? Seems like enough coverage to me, but yeah, in set-up you will get...

Gatewood
Provides excellent wind protection. I don't use a bivy, just a ground sheet, that is part of the reason I went with the Gatewood over another poncho like the Golite or MLD. Here is Will'...

Poncho

30 degree bag
I hike mostly in the PNW, primary in the Olympics and North Cascades, and have been snowed on in July and August. Lows in the upper 20's to low 30's above 6000' are not uncommon. I woul...
