Too bad for me as I am too late on your deal. But since this is the exact set up I am looking at may I ask you a few questions?
1) Why did you pick the Mld over the Yama Tarp that is sized to fit the 1.25 bivy?
2) To me it looks hard to crawl under(i am 6') did you find the same thing and would the shelter benefit from a zipper or velco on the beak to make it easier in your opinion?
3) On the PCT i am planning to set it up with just the bivy and was wondering if you had done this and how hard would it be to put the Patrol on after(like in the middle of the night)
4) You mentioned you wanted a bigger shelter, were you referring to the 1.25, Patrol, or both and why?
Thanks so much for any help!!
