I'm new to hanging, and looking at attempting to make my own fly. I'm leaning towards a hex shape, but I'm definitely open to other suggestions. On size, too... I really have no ideas on that.
I'm thinking of including grommets on one half of the tarp where the tie-outs would go so I can use my trekking poles to sort of "open up" if I'm cooking, sitting in the hammock like a chair, etc.
The tent I've used is a TT Contrail, and my pack weight is typically low, but I'm not counting grams, so yeah. Not looking for a 4-season tarp, though. Yet, anyway
I figured I would take nylon and make it silnylon myself - that process isn't bad, right?
I'm still looking around, trying to get information, just hoping for a little guidance right now.
