    Default Z-Packs Groundsheet/Poncho

    Hi everyone. I have been looking at the Z-Packs poncho but have questions.
    It comes in three sizes: Solo-Plus
    Twin Size
    Flat Size


    1) How is the sizing for someone at 6' 1" about 190#?

    2) Has anyone been using it in shoulder season, Spring and Fall?

    3) Since it is 1.0 oz cuben, how durable has it been?
    I see it can also be use as a ground sheet, the reason I ask.

    4) Would it be best to have a wind shirt underneath when in rain?

    5) Which size do you have?

    Thanks in advance for any input.

    I have the solo plus and wear it with a wind shirt underneath. I also sourced some cuben sleeves as the arms do otherwise get wet. I put a glove hook on the hem at each side which can be attached to the waist shock cord to give a closer fit when windy.

    Where did you get the cuben sleeves from ?
    Remote for detachment, narrow for chosen company, winding for leisure, lonely for contemplation, the Trail beckons not merely north and south, but upward to the body, mind, and soul of man.
