    Kelty Noah 12's are on sale on Amazon for around $50 and are fantastic tarps more than capable of holding 2. I don't think you can find better for less, much less anything as durable.

    It has a loop at either end and one in the middle if you wanted to run a tighter ridgeline. It will sag a little without it but not much (about the same as my other tarps do).
