Re: MLD poncho/tarp// wasRe: Big Sky Teton Tents
I spotted one of the MLD poncho/tarps for sale, second hand, and snapped it
up. It was a second and came without the repair kit and guy lines mentioned at
the site. I inquired about purchasing the kit and the owner graciously
offered to send one for free, even tho' it was a second-hand-second, just for
sending a SASE.
Of course, I accepted the offer immediately.
I was extremely pleased with the SST (long) both as a poncho and as a tarp
over my old style Hennessy UL Backpacker hammock. This is what I carried for my
56 odd miles in NC/TN along the Appalachian Trail last month. I used the
"Snakeskins" to seal the very end against possible infiltration of rain at the
tarp/hanging line junctions. The tarp set up could have been maybe 4" longer,
but was fine with the Snakeskins' overlaps.
With some more use, I'll write up an owner review. Meanwhile, I will field
questions about mine, if people like.

I've still got the Mountain Laurel Designs poncho tarps on my radar.
