This will handle it.

Not much to say other than whatever you can imagine using a tarp for this will handle it with flying colors

Used for setting up a shelter by the fire

Used for setting up a shelter by the fire both as a wind break and to protect from snow falling from tree limbs above. Despite the minus 10 degree weather, the tarp performed admirably. Get some msr groundhog stakes as the supplied stakes, while possibly adequate in soft to medium soils, are worthless in frozen ground. Did not deduct any stars for the stakes as the review is really about the tarp which is great and well worth the money.

I bought this in place of an army poncho

I bought this in place of an army poncho which apparently you cannot get anymore. I assume it is waterproof although I was not rained on during my campout with it. I used bungee cords to secure it to tent stakes and hiking poles to make a tent like shelter. I am satisfied with it. The 10ft by 10ft size makes it a bit heavier than the army poncho. There was easily room for 2 people and their packs under this when set up. I especially liked the loops around the perimeter. The main back of this shelter has a piece of webbing sewn into it for added strength. Overall I would recommend it for backpacking.

Top quality and they don't come any more waterproof

Top quality and they don't come any more waterproof than this. Multiple, reinforced tie down points along the edges and center seam allowing many configurations when putting this tarp up. My first experience with it was an overnight solo camping trip in the Cascade mountains in November. Rained off and on all night and into the next morning. Tarp performed beautifully and I stayed comfortably dry underneath in my hammock. It's not the lightest tarp but I didn't buy it for it's weight.

Gave as gift to my husband...

Gave as gift to my husband. He immediately took it on a week long hunting trip for his only shelter. He was very satisfied with it. It should be noted that there is an ultra light version of this type for those who count ounces. This is our second Aqua quest product. Great quality
