When does a tarp become a tent?

Post by Bearbonesnorm » Wed Jul 06, 2011 3:25 pm

I'm considering getting Bearpaw tents in the US to make me a custom tarp. I've a few ideas of what I'd like but I'm starting to wonder if my ideal, posh tarp is actually going to turn out to be a basic tent.

Where would you consider a tarp ends and a tent starts? Oh and while you're here what features would your ideal tarp/shelter incorporate?

Erm, very nice ... Cuben fibre doesn't half put the price up though.

After following the link, I'm now thinking Cuben fibre kilts might the next big thing! I wonder if you can pedal in one if you hitch it up ;)
