So I recntly received my new al black maccat standard. I currently have a super fly but wanted something a bit lighter for 3 season, which will be most of my camping. I received it very quickly and dealing with Brian was great! Surely some of the best customer service that I've ever received. The tarp is built great.
I must say I believe this tarp is the perfect size for 3 season camping. Just enough, if pitched low enough to completely cover the sides of your hammock for wind protect. I also had him put pannel pullouts on each side, which I though was overly rediculous seeing how the standard is a fairly small tarp, but figured it couldn't hurt to have them. While set up in very windy conditions, these pulls kept the tarp off of me and just gave more wind security. The pictures below were taken with my phone so I apologize if they're of low quality.
One question to you standard owners. Have you ever had issues with rain, or wind blown rain coming in from the steep cat cuts coming from the ridge to the side?
