OK, this seems to go against everything holy and good about UL philosophy, but it can just POUR for days without giving up here in BC.
On my last trip I really felt the need for a comfortable outdoor area to hang out and cook under. Just to makes things less totally unpleasant.
Does anyone have any recommendations for something like this that would be suitable for two people? Preferably cheap, but... I really want to keep the weight down to a few ounces or not do it at all, so if cuben's the only answer then I'll just have to save up.
Edit: Just to clarify, this would be separate from a sleeping area. I use a tent for sleeping anyway... just too many bugs and mice otherwise.
