I've been looking into getting myself a tarp for the colder seasons since the bugs will be settling down. I'm not looking into getting an expensive tarp, but it would be nice to have a decent one. So far I've come down to these choices.
Equinox 6X8 @ 59.99
Weight: 9.2 oz
REI Blue Poly Tarp 6x8 @ $3.50
Weight: 11 oz
I know this almost seems like a ridiculous question, but I guess I don't want to waste my time waiting on the $3.50 tarp and it end up not being able to do the job well.
So what are some qualities I need to look for when deciding?
If any of you have used this $3.50 tarp, please fill me in on your opinion of it.
Finally, they also offer a 8x10 tarp as well. Is there any reason I should consider this one over the 6x8. It seems that a 6x8 would do the job, but I am unsure to be honest seeing that I've never experimented with one.
