    This is a Moss Parawing... before MSR bought them. disappointed to hear that they are NLA. Mine is getting on in years and I was thinking of getting a new one.



    Go soothingly through the grease mud, as there lurks the skid demon.

    Thanks Bob! I based my design (loosely) on the Parawing, made it with materials I had laying around the shop.

    Kelty Sunshade

    The Kelty Sunshade is well made and is great in hign winds when the anchors are used. It also cost about $100.00. A little cheaper than the zing.

    Looks like they have some pretty good products. Web site claims they are waterproof. I may have to try one out. I wonder if REI will carry those... Then I could return it if it stinks.

    i got by for decades (seriously) with just a tarp. OK, i always had trees or some sort of similar structure to fly my tarp off of... but now, having had a Parawing, i can imagine that it IS possible to free-fly a tarp, with a couple poles, some guy lines and a few stakes. you would simply tension it against itself, same as the Parawing... some tarps will sure be lighter, then again you get all the protection you pay for... i use the heavy-duty silver tarps which are black on the bottom side. an upside to that is they don't distort the colors like a blue tarp does, tho they weigh considerably more. i got my Parawing in 08 after seeing a picture here at BMWMOA's site- and they were being phased out then. i had a real hard time getting one.
