For a hammock that tarp would have to be set up in diamond configuration. From the size and weight it sounds like it is PU coatd nylon. Take a look at the Kelty Noah tarps. If you do want to go lighter weight tarp and switch to a silnylon tarp the Wliderness Logics Tadpole is a god choice for an extra $30.00.
