This is a little extra weight well worth carrying.
The JRB Weather shield bottom works great for protection from rain underneath your hammock. I have one and love it. Works great by itself in warm weather and can get you down to 60 degrees or so by itself. They are currently out of stock though.
I am considering making a speer style 8x10 rain fly. However, I really do like my small rain fly.
I might go with a kickassquilt so I don't have to worry about the additional JRB weather shield. I'm off to the quilt forum to start posting.....lol
