      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Guides Siltarp 2

Recommended Posts

Really like the Guides Siltarp 2, with velcro you can use as a bivy sack. But i am looking for something that is breathable and about the same size. Has anyone used this as a bivy sack(condensation?) or know of some other product? Thanks

Just think about laying on a siltarp will turn it into cheesecloth if there's rock or sand nearby. hellno3d.gif


I've seen some ultralight guys use Tyvek (the building material) or mylar. Tyvek seems like a good idea, but I imagine the mylar would be a bit noisy. I think there are guys selling precut Tyvek chunks out on the internet for use as tarps.


A bit more spendy, but still pretty light, is the OR winter sack. It's a sleeping bag cover made of dryloft. Not recommended for heavy precip, though. Don't know if they're still making them, but they're under a pound and can be zipped up.
