I use froggtoggs as my rainwear, which frankly is not very reliable but incredible at what it does until it rips. I love the fact that I have my gate wood as backup just in case. I've literally never used it as rainwear but it's there and in the meantime is a spectacular 3 season shelter that I have used on every trip I've gone on in the last two years.

Hey MAX, what kind of Silnylon Hammock tarp do you have that only weighs 4 oz?

I don't get the purpose of the small staked footprint a little extra cord
gets you around objects like trees and rocks which work to stake and guy out the tent also. I can appreciate a small footprint but I think you are asking for the impossible. I've gone from a TT rain shadow to a LH solo to a six moon wild oasis as my go to I'd rather have a hexamid but in my opinion its not that much of a step up for the money. I use a poncho as my ground sheet but that's soon to change I'm thinkin
