Tarp Coverage Comparison (Pix, Various Models)
Off the heels of my post demonstrating how to pitch the Grand Trunk Funky Forest Tarp off the center, I thought it would be enlightening to see a few different tarp models in comparison to show coverage.
I used a wide-angle lens to get all the tarp in the frame so there is a slight distortion on the edges, but hopefully that will not take away from the visual presented.
All the tarps were centered within the 12 ft (366 cm) pipe stand. You can see that outside of the enormous Grand Trunk Funky Forest Tarp (2012 model), the other tarps all provide nearly the same coverage along the ridge line.
I have a few more tarps, but I ran out of space (and ridge lines!) to show them all at the same time. I'll post additional photos soon with some other models.
EDIT: I just added a few more hex tarps from Hennessy, OES, and Hammock Gear for comparison (11/23)
