I live in a warm environment and I was wondering if anyone has experience using a tarp without a bivy? I've always used the bivy, and always thought I could go without it I just never man'd up too it. I got rid of my last bivy and was just curious if anyone's ever had problems going without. I mostly tent camp now because it's very seldom I get to hike out for more than 5-20 miles so weight is not a huge issue anymore. I don't much care for bivy's either unless it's just the bivy either.
