    Kelty Noah's 12x12 using the short Kelty poles and nearby trees for support.



    This set-up was for shade with the tarp next to the tent. The "short" kelty poles pack down smaller than the long poles. They fit in the bag with the tarp.

    Here's another example where the tarp was again used for afternoon shade and not needed over the tent. Three trees and one pole used.

    The thing about traveling is, you never want it to end and you can't wait to get home.

    MSR Parawing in "high trim"


    and in "low trim" mode


    the P/W is great, if not heavy. it has two tall poles and the other two corners stake directly to the ground, with shorty 4' guy lines. when something's available, i will afix the low sides to trees, poles, etc. for the ability to raise and lower it. such as i have in these two shots. instead of tying it off, i use bungees or compression straps- often both- for better wind resistance- i call it *bunge-ability* which alows for give and take in high winds, and can lessen the chances of a blow out or grommet tear.

    Unfortunately, MSR no longer makes the Para Wing & as far as I have searched, there are none available to purchase. I sure wanted one after seeing a few of them in use at the 4R Rally last year. I'm bummed!

    It's true but hard to believe that they no longer make parawings. It seemed like such a staple for the camping community. I own a couple of different sizes. An outfitter's wing made by Moss Tents b4 they were bought out and then a 19' Parawing.

    Looks like the closest thing made to the 19' parawing now is the Kelty Noah. Same size but ligher weight material (not necessarily bad) and NRS makes a copy of the outfitter wing (huge) they call the River Wing that is built to last.

    Yeah, I wanted a 19' Para Wing due to it being waterproof. Was going to use it on a family camping trip just in case... The outfitter wing just seems so big, though it might do the trick. I just want something we can sit our chairs under in case of a rainstorm blowing through... I think they have a large Zing, or somethign like that as a replacement for the outfitter...

    outfitter wing is great for car camping or similar. big enough to cover the picnic table and have room all around for chair seating. little too big to haul around on the bike. YMMV

    I've got the Kelty Sun Shade. I love it. It's been through some very strong storms!

    Sun shade

    I also have the kelty sunshade which comes in two sizes. It is great and holds up well in western winds. I had it in Gillette and it was one of the only shades to do so.. It stands by itself but you can also lash it down. I large enough for a table and the bike. Well made. I also like the one a previous poster put up for us to see. Looks great.
