I got my first opportunity to use this tarp that I picked up on sale during the winter. Quite spacious, will fit two adults and gear without any issues. I have replaced the heavy steel pole with a ultra light walking pole and the pegs with lightweight alternatives. Total weight is approx 500g and pack size 20x10cm if using the walking pole. Nice use of a sew in bungee cord on the back that will keep tight to the ground or conform to a rock or unlevel ground. Yet to try in foul weather but it gives the impression that it would hold up.
