    Snake Skins

    Hi! I just got a Mantis Ul and have an Eno ember underquilt. I'm also getting a sea to summit gear sling. I'd like to get some skins to make set up easier. What are people's recommendations? Thanks!

    I did pick up an eno ember underquilt when it was on sale. What's a dyneema tarp? Also, while looking on their website I saw an underquilt protector. Do you think they're important?
