Re: Para Tipi vs 4 man vs Para tarp
hick, I bought the 6 man and large stove. I don't do much solo so I spread the weight by 2 guys. If you are planning on kids with any regularity, I'd be looking 4 or 6. I want a paraT for fast light two man hunts but for a man and one or two kids?
The other thing about the weight is that if the kids can bear any weigth beyond thier own bag/clothes, you can share the overall and make the add lbs for the 4 or 6 worth the time. If you will solo more for now, get the para then save up. But Having been in the 8 and 6, I doubt I'd want to spend more than a little time with 3 people in a 4 man. In some respects I think I should have bought the 8. Anyhow, I'd like a para, 6 and 12 for the varying # of folks I might have and a tarp for backup away from camp shelter.
