    Maybe I am bad at it, but it always seems to take so long to put the tarp back in the stuff sack. Skins make it soooo much easier and faster and protect the tarp during set up/take down. After only having used it 1 time (while setting it up in my backyard) I cant ever see not using one in the future if I ever got more tarps

    I just deployed my single snake skin from Walhalla Hammocks and take down of tarp was SO much easier than stuffing in its sack!!! Although I did stuff it in its sack for storage. Even that was easier though.

    Once you use the snake skins, you will wonder how you went without them. As others have already said, you won't have a problem using them with the CRL.

    Yeah, I still use the stuff sack as well, but still, way faster and way way easier

    I've tried the HH snake skin with just a tarp but the tail of the skin was so narrow I couldn't get to the D-
    Ring on the tarp. My CLR setup is more a double line as I connect to the hammock D-ring with a mini-biner, go around the tree, come back through the mini-biner, across the hammock, through the D-ring on the other side, around the tree then back to the tarp where I connect to a Figure-9 that's attached to the D-ring with a split ring. That way I can just slide the line if I need to more the tarp a little. With the single line CRL - where the tarp is attached via a prussic knot loop on the line at each tarp end, you'd slide the tarp - but you have to deal with adjusting each end separately.

    I made 8 inch dog bones as an extension from the tarp D-rings and that may give me a tail that reaches out the end of the snake skin. I'll reconsider everything this summer because I often find I need to use trees that are just barely far enough apart. And I like big tarps.

    I suppose there is really no need to run a ridge line the full length of the tarp (unless it is winter and I'm using it for extra tarp support in case it snows). I just have to decide on the max diameter trees I'll be dealing with so I have enough length. But there is still the problem adding a "tail" to the tarp D-Ring so it will feed out the end of the snake skin and give the snake skin a place to scrunch up when I take it off the tarp.
