MLD UL hammock tarp ? on 10/08/2010 17:54:58 MDT Print View

Anyone have any experience with this tarp ...

I want to use it over a Warbonnet Blackbird as a "just in case" tarp when the weather is supposed to be nice.

I too would like to know, wish I had the extra cash to buy one. It seems like it would be perfect for a just in case.

I am seriously considering getting one, but funds won't be around for a while, want to make a topquilt first.

I've had one for a few weeks now. It's ok if you expect no wind. This tarp is quite small--even when used with a Nano-7 hammock. Shape is best described as an off-set diamond--the ends you tie out to the ground are not directly across from each other. Although I haven't tried one, I believe a square 8x8' or 9x9' would be much better and also give some ground camping options--but obviously with some added weight.
