  1. when it is warmer out I usually carry just a light poncho for shelter. I don’t go real far out and I’m mostly worried about getting wet and cold. when I hike in the snow I have a giant plastic bag called a banana bag in my pack. I also usually have a space blanket but I’m not Overjoyed with it as a shelter. they are just too small and fragile but they can be used to keep Wind and Rain off to at least some extent. the Poncho is the big deal though.

  2. I have a shelter (or two) in every load-out. I know how important it is to get out/protect yourself from unsavory environments. Even my combat belt hiking L-O has a poncho (w/ grommets) & an emergency blanket.
    We carry fire shelters on our L-O’s when we’re on wildland fires for what they’re worth.

  3. The only right setup is a tent. This tarp trend will get you killed when the weather goes really bad like snow blowing sideways on what you thought was going to be a beautiful trip. Tarps are good for covering your pack in camp or your firewood. A foot of blowing snow in at night in the mountains will prove this comment true and you……dead.
    But hey, you’ll look trendy out there Mr lightweight. Now do some squats…..

  4. David, what are your thoughts on the Lawson Hammock Blue Ridge? I think that it could work well in many climates provided the right sleeping bag and insulation.
