After using some shotty and worn out gear this hunting season and getting wet and cold I've decided to get some new essential gear this year. So far I purchased the Ti Goat bivy, Mountain Hardwear bag, now shoppin for the tarp shelter.....
I've been researching tarp shelter/tents for a week or 2 and have narrowed it down to the following:
Kifaru Paratarp, Integral Designs, Henry Shires Tarptent, Golite and the Six Moon Designs poncho models.
I really like each one and they all offer alittle something that the other doesn't. So if you have one or have owned one please chime in. I got a Kifaru Long Hunter and am leaning towards the paratarp just because I know the company and really like thier products and it is made in the USA. Needs to be under 1 lb and bomb proof, made in the USA is highly prefered and trecking pole setup a must too.
