I used this tarp on my entire CDT thru hike. I held up great and kept me dry in many a storm. It is minimal but had sufficient space for me to keep my gear dry. I did use it in conjunction with an MLD bivy for both bug protection, extra sleeping bag warmth, as my ground cloth, and for rain spray protection.
It also shed freezing rain better than the other shelters I saw out there. In addition, any moisture on the outside of the tarp did not bleed through if I touched the inside of the tarp. I have always had problems with this when using Silnylon.
Being in quite a few windy, rain storms, I never had any doubts that the construction and stitching would hold up. I love this tarp and am ready to go at least another 2,000 miles with it! Thanks Ron, great product.
