    tarps which one?

    looking to pick up a new tarp and i have it narrowed down to two choices so if anyone has any thoughts or opinions on either one good or bad it would be much appreciated. the first is the oware flat tarp 3.5 and the other is the integral designs siltarp 2. this tarp will pull double duty i will use it for me and my daughter backpacking and as a single person shelter when i go bikepacking.

    I just won a six moon design tent, but maybe I should have gone with their wild oasis tarp

    Someday I'll be able to buy the things I want new instead of hounding ebay and CL for deals.

    I have a couple of the Integral Siltarps and am quite happy with them. I don't really know what else to tell you, considering they are both flat tarps I don't really know if there could be any major differences or not.

    I've had an 8x10' sil-nylon tarp for 13 years. Works great and don't see any reason to replace it. It's roomy, can be pitched lots of ways, and is very light. And it was cheap, even back then.

    I just got a Bearpaw Lair in Silnylon. Haven't tried it out on the trail yet but it sets up nice and tight. Made in the US too. Lair
