It’s hard to beat a poncho/tarp as part of a SuperUltraLight backpacking system — one piece of gear serves as rainwear (including pack cover) and a tarp shelter. New for 2005, the GoLite Poncho/Tarp weighs 11 ounces. It’s made of GoLite SilLite fabric which, is 1.76 oz/yd2 compared to ordinary silnylon at 1.3 oz/yd2, and claimed to be ultra-tough and ultra-waterproof.
