    I keep two. My first one was a cheap Yukon outfitters that I had got on Amazon. That tends to be my loaner these days. I now have the xenon from Dutch and that's my year round now.

    I have 11 tarps. Use them for guests and my fickle mood often determines my need. Weather has a lot of influence on which I use. I have everything from simple diamond shaped to Ogee to Winter Dream. I like having the variety.

    Yes. Two silnylon beasts of 10x13. Diy Hex. Emergency poncho tarp. And a 5x7 which doubles as groundcloth.

    Started out with my 12' Toxaway. Then added doors to it. Then decided I needed a fast and light tarp, and not wanting to go cuben, got a sil diamond for milder weather trips. Then picked up a used 11' Maccat because sometimes I want more coverage, but not the weight of the tarp with doors, plus a little shorter to fit in more places.

    That about covers all my uses, although if I keep eyeing the For Sale forum, I'm sure I'll come up with more potential needs (otherwise known as excuses).

    I use my HG Winter Palace cf tarp most of the time. It's everything I want in a tarp. However, I have about six more tarps for general purposes:

    1 DIY Silnylon Hex - decent coverage
    1 HH Hex Polyester tarp - decent coverage. I paid $25 on Amazon and haven't seen that deal since. This was a great pickup.
    2 Grand Trunk 10 x 10 Funky Forest polyester tarps - pretty good loaner tarps. I paid $20 per tarp on Amazon and haven't seen that deal since.
    2 Guide Gear tarps - paid $19.99 each on sportsmansguide.com. What a waste of money. Totally useless for personal weather protection, but great for group hang coverage - I have one I dedicate to hanging over the fire when it's raining. For some reason it smells like bacon.

    I forget how many tarps I have. I use my CF's for backpacking although for a quick overnight I will take a different tarp each time to make sure they get used.

    Somehow I've ended up with 5.

    1. OES MacCat Deluxe - My original hammock tarp. Great tarp, good coverage.
    2. DIY Silpoly with doors - Used when I'm expecting blowing rain or colder temps or just because I like it because I made it and it weighs the same as the OES.
    3. DIY Silpoly Asym - Just finished this one. Taking it out for it's first summer run in a couple weeks.
    4. DIY 10X12 Monster 2 pounder - Made from a clearance tent footprint. Loaner or car camper.
    5. Walmart 5X7 backpacker tarp - Rarely use. Makes a good cook tarp on rainy trips.

    I have 3 total. I started off with a WL tadpole. Ended up getting a SF for colder weather hangs. And most recently got a HG cuben Hex to go really light in the summer months. I still use all 3 depending on what I want to carry and the weather conditions. One of these days I'll get the HG winter palace.
