but you're right, the zipper would ad some weight & opportunity for failure.
i have thought about beaks on the end that you could attach & remove by either tying or using mini biners.
it would need to attach underneath the ridge line a few inches from the end, & to the corners of the tarp... then to the tree or hammock support.
i sure do wish we could come up w/ another name for those extensions... something about that name ... beak, that i just don't like
I think Ray Garlington originally called them Tarp Hoods. I'm not sure that really says it either.
