So I've been playing with my Echo I shelter from HMG. This is my first tarp. I can get various pitches nice and taut, but I'm wondering what is better in storms and wind.
1. A pitch where the sides are relatively low to the ground with a flatter ridge line. This provides a bit more coverage area and seems to provide lower profile side panels. (less for the wind to catch on)
2. A pitch where the sides are lower to the ground but with a more pronounced and angled ridge line. This would seem to block wind and rain a bit better, but cuts into the covered area and gives higher side panels.
3. A flatter ridge line with the sides very low to the ground. This would maybe shed wind and rain the best, but would greatly cut into head room.
So how do you pitch your cat cut tarps in wind and storms, and why?
