This weekend was my first time pitching my 8 x 10 silnylon flat tarp from BearPaw Wilderness Designs. My main reason for choosing a BearPaw tarp was the configuration of perimeter and side-panel tie outs.
My tarp weighs 15.3 oz. The provided tarp sack weighs 0.3 oz.
To pitch the tarp, I brought along 36 feet of 1mm tarp cord (four 6-foot lengths, four 3-foot lengths) and 6-8 stakes.
Here are five pitches.
