    If @Nibblet doesn't want it I will take it! Cheers
    If it's not a first round hit you need to practice more

    Correct, comes with pole. I believe you have to add a guy wire and pegs if you want to use them.

    Can take a photo tonight when I get home but found this if it helps.

    It does help thanks.
    It's an item I'm on the fence about so I'll let the claw grab it so I don't grenade a sale for you.

    I've got a macpac one but don't like how it sits on your face.

    I usually tie some cord to the over the face part to keep it off my face.

    This thread made me pull finger and sort something.
    I take my tripod with me anyway so made some guy line with some shock cord and self tightening adjusters I had sitting around.

    Looks like it should work nicely.

    Itís good, pretty roomy inside, I fit my pack, rifle, and boots inside. Iíve had it in the snow and rain but wouldnít want to be stuck in it for long periods during shit weather for obvious reasons. Itís about 440 grams and packs pretty small and the fabric is tough.
