My Locale Wet & Humid Southeast....
About Me My stomping grounds are the SE US, and 90% of the time, somewhere on the AT in GA, TN, or NC. Other times I enjoy going to the Smokies, or other smaller wilderness areas such as the Savage Gulf area.
Most of my trips are between 2 - 5 days long, with rare 7 day long trips. My total pack weights are generally under 20 lbs, unless trying new gear, or carrying extra for the kids. In the dead of summer, I enjoy SUL hikes, and have given thought to XUL (almost there...)

Re: Tarp size: is 10 x 4,5 enough???
I have a 6.5 x 10 foot cuben tarp that I have set-up in half pyramid and used a rain skirt and an umbrella to block the front. There is a lot of room inside, however, it can still be easy to run ag...

Re: Checking in: Sawyer Mini
Don't chunk the Sawyer bags, they will work, although, maybe not as long as the Evernew bags. I am still using both brands. The Sawyer bag has delaminated, but it doesn't appear to have mad...

Re: Update: New Zippered Beak
Nice tarp! I agree with the others, it looks a little small, but the photo of you laying in it doesn't look so bad. What about with a pad though? Are you using an inflatable or a ccf pad? Is...

Re: Xtherm alternative?

Re: Re: Re: Cap 2 & Cap 4
Yeah, the only time sweat is really an issue for me is during the middle of our summers, then it doesn't matter... when temps are in the 90's, or worse, nearing triple digits in the middle ...
