    best tarp that closes/doors for two 11' hammocks

    Ok I dug and dug...and the best I can find are the superfly and the DD XL. The problem are the sizes. The superfly gives you a 11' ridgeline plus the doors, but it's only 10' wide. That's tighter than I want to be if I can help it. I like the size of the 14' DD XL, but it's only 10' wide. I wish it were 11' so I could use that as the ridgeline, and have it roomy. Actually, that doesn't give me doors. I don't want to pay hundreds, but I'm willing to pay. Oh and I prefer multicam. Any recommendations? Loving this forum...Thanks!

    The Kelty Noha 12 x 12 is a big tarp and has plenty of tie outs but it is heavy and doesn't pack well. I have used it a few times with two 11" hammocks while car camping with no problems. If pack size and weight is not an issue the Kelty 16 x16 is big enough to cover a house. All of the Kelty tarps are reasonably priced as well.

    The Chinnok is a good size, but just not setup with the pullouts for hammocks. The noah is a good tarp in the largest size, but this is for my bugout back and I need stealth. Good recommendations though. Leaning toward the superfly unless anyone knows of something I'm missing. Thanks

    edit: the 16 x 16 may be to big for stealth. lol

    Honestly if you're trying to cover two hammocks at once I think you're going to have trouble getting doors to close. As you pointed out it's the width issue, but it's a bit more than just that. The wider your hammocks also means the higher your tarp has to be to clear the hammocks. This means tgat the tarp has to be still wider to to come down and shield the sides. You're getting pretty big if you want doors also.

    Pole mods will help though. Maybe a superfly with pole mods? Another option is two flat cut tarps overlapping like 8x12' each

    The superfly would definitely need pole mods. It's doable, but would be tight. Maybe I should realize that I don't always have to be in storm mode, and it might work. After watching vids on the kelty noah 16, it would definitely do it. The guy set it up like the winter palace. I just wish they offered camo, and I would pay more. Another thing about the superfly, is the multicam is $240 after the price increases. My hammocks will be multicam, and their digital camo looks really brownish. I don't know why such a price hike for multicam. Sure i bet the material cost more, but wow.

    Have a look at UGQ "Winter Dream." http://www.undergroundquilts.com/tar...l#WINTER_DREAM

    It is available in 11 ft ridge-line, 126 inches wide (10' 6"), in Multi-cam. Sounds like most of what you want.

    kelty 12 did not cover two to my satisfaction using the dutch double hooks
    just a tad to short and with the two lines the door situation is kinda funky ?
    it can kinda work in a pinch but think a custom setup is in order
