Backpacking Tarp/Rain Protection while glassing.

Wondering if and what you guys use to keep out of the rain while glassing. I guess you can always sit under a tree, like we have for hours this bear season, even though you still get a little wet and cant glass that great. Looking for some kind-of nylon/waterproof tarp that you can set up quick and easy with a few trekking poles or sticks.

I added my 2 cents on a similar post check out Gossamer Gears site they have several Heavy Duty ground tarps. Folds up really small also damn light & durable as hell, I have used mine even under my tent & also used under one of the tarps as a ground tarp sleeping pad & bag on top No holes !! I have never used it for glassing but can not image it not working
