User Review: Gossamer Gear SpinnShelter
Design: three-season tarp
Ease of Setup: farely easy could get difficult in windy conditions
Weight: 11.5 oz.
Price Paid: $195
I have used the SpinnShelter on many backpacking adventures. I believe that it is one of the most advanced designed tarps out there. On nights when the weather (windy conditions) is not so great the full protection tarp shelters perfectly.
I remember on one of my first trips with the tarp everyone around me was amazed at how light it was (only 11.5 oz. with poles). Some even doubted that this would work. But in fact it could easily get lost in my pack. This is a perfect addition to my 5 lbs. and below base weight pack. Also its pitch is set up so that it is fairly easy to achieve a taut set up. This is the perfect way to to enjoy the wilderness.
(since it is a tarp condensation in the shelter is rarely a issue)
