    Who should i go to for a custom tarp?

    I've looked at the tarps offered by various cottage vendors and like a lot of what I see. What I'm looking for is a custom tarp for my Amok. I have a superfly for my sparrow and really like the coverage so it has me thinking the biggest limitation for the Amok in regard to being a true all weather 4 season system is the tarp. I have a basic idea that has doors and extended head and foot coverage. I haven't reached out to anyone as of yet, so I thought i'd ask those here that have custom ordered tarps with specific needs. Thanks for any ideas!!

    You will get tons of replies, but as far as quick fully custom work goes. Jared at simply light designs does it best IMO

    Any chance you have the skills/desire/equipment to make your own tarp? If so, http://ripstopbytheroll.com/

    I would add the room as well. Tarps require some space to lay out and sew.

    The trick with that one is it might be better if the person making it has the amok to ensure the right fit and coverage.

    that's a good point. i'd certainly be willing to send the hammock to get the best cut.
