Whether someone was on the cover?

Does anyone have any comments about resistance to rain Recommended size (Tharp that can protect two)?

I plan (approximately) white ב"הרים trip" (the white mountains) in New Hampshire in June,
That should be a rainy month, and wondering if that Tharp will protect me enough I'd like to advice.

I did all the aplatim with Tarp (including the Whites). The plan was to sleep in shelters and only when necessary to use Tarp.

In practice, used in Tarp not more than 10-times has always been a place for shelters, but there were many more times during the day when the downpour started and I had shelter, including accommodation of multiple people.

I wouldn't take Tarp as shelter. If you plan to sleep in shelters there and want to have a backup solution. About-protection if you set him right, he's going to protect you from rain in very good shape. The problem is the floor. I used a rescue blanket to protect the floor from water and it's not bad. There is no doubt that a tent sheltering more or less protected.

It's been erupting seems even more problematic. In terms of money and weight, it's a great solution but don't expect crazy rain protection.

In PCT already took this tent:


Expensive, but worth every penny.

Tharp bought and checked it on a three-day trip, which included one night rains a lot.
He bought the silaniilon Tharp Tharp of Bear-paw designs, wilderness
Measures 10 x 10 feet or 3 meters, and weighs about 600 g.
Besides Tharp himself, I took with me a single and waterproof nylon used as floor
The total weight was approximately 1 kg.

Tharp has certainly proved himself as a shelter from the rain.
The most important statistic (I didn't know) in flat Tharp is the size.
As a general rule, the bigger is the better rain protection (trivial matter), but more difficult to lay and stretch it well,
Especially in a wooded area.

The research:
10 x 10 Tharp (dimensions in feet) is big enough for two people + shelter,
The disadvantage is that complicated to deploy it properly.
Smaller like 9X9 Tharp or 10X8 give enough cover for two.
For a single traveler I think 9X7 or 9X6 Tharp gives full protection.
And I wouldn't recommend going under to 8X5,
That is already giving very little room for error, and may already require the use of extra protection bivy
Also, anyone who plans to sleep in bare areas need Tharp is large enough to allow connection of the walls on the ground to block the wind as much as possible.

When you use the ground sheet, Tharp is to allow sleeping on ground muddy worldliness.
And it worked nicely. You have to remember that it doesn't protect from water flowing on the ground, and therefore have to choose depending on accommodation (fewer parameter notice him in a tent).

The main hisronot Tharp are flat not hermetic protection (like a tent or tarptant),
And his aacama requires some thought and attention (at least in the beginning, Lee takes a few minutes to deploy it, but I hope to get better).
Who it's not daunting, the Tharp shelter, cheap and easy.
I have no doubt that take him out now, shelter.
And I think it is ideal for walks in the country,
Also for the reasons already mentioned, and that it can be used easily even when the flap.

In my experience-just because of the risk of water stress spill to Tharp wouldn't buy it but buy a tent properly with "bathroom". Negligible weight difference.
