    Hammeck Stand Tarp Question

    For those of you who have a Hammeck stand what tarps are you using with the stand? I am looking to take mine when I go car camping and I want to look at getting a new tarp for doing this. Currently I use a CF tarp when I backpack and do not want to take this car camping and hanging out by the fire. Weight is not an issue in what I look to get. I do like to put a tarp in porch mode when the conditions are right.

    You can pick up a Kelty Noah's 12' tarp pretty cheap. They're a good tarp, just a bit heavier than silnylon or CF.

    Use a Kelty Noah 9 with great success with my DIY "Hammeck-like" stand.

    I use a Kelty Noah 12 with my Hammeck stand (in an A frame setup.) I save my nicer tarps for non car camping situations. Just make sure to put the tarp under the ridge pole or you can get wet.

    Seems like a few Kelty users with their stands. Thanks for your input so far.
