I have a Big Duck as well. It's a handful to set up (usually takes at least 3 people) but has saved my butt on a few different trips. Fantastic in the rain or blistering sun. Unless it's a low water Middle Fork trip I'll always have it on my boat. If it is a low water Middle Fork then I'll take along my smaller Big Agnes tarp. Either way, on any trip, I'm taking a tarp with me.My buddy has a Big Duck and it's sweet but much harder to set up and much heavier to pack around. Is really nice for big groups. We mix what we take on trips depending on the needs.
It worked on me...I just picked one up. At $60, it's tough to lose on that one.The Luxe is $61 "Today Only!" every day so far, since long before Christmas, not that it matters. The site also says "only 1 in stock" as well. It said that the day I bought mine, as well as every day since.
I got the white one thinking it would be cooler in the heat with the UV reflective side up. I have no idea whats best but my green Kelty is hot AF if the sun is beating on it.
What color is best for hot sun?
