    Hushnel... Be warned my friend... if you haven't already herd, some have found the ENO "DriFly" to be less than adequate cover at times in wind & rain.

    I hadn't heard that, last weekend it rained everyday with a couple of good storms rolling in. It stayed dry but as I laid in it watching the rain pour down it was pretty obvious that the "Dryfly" wouldn't do with a real wind, I used a couple of cheap poles and even at their tightest/lowest adjustment it couldn't really handle a side wise rain.

    I have my yellow ripstop tarp my wife made for me years ago. It kept the rain off of me all weekend, it's huge but very light and packs small. I think I'll have her make me a new tarp with the newer water tight fabric.

    Unless a person is a real minimalist/gramweeny they usually end up w/ a larger tarp that the DriFly or the stock tarp on a HH.
    It's really nice to have that extra dry space, not only to help keep your hammock dry in windy rain, but also, it gives you extra "porch room" to hang out under... lounging, cooking, having a fellow camper come sit & talk to you while you enjoy the comfort of your hammock
    Besides, a silnylon tarp will give you more coverage for less weight & bulk than the DriFly because the DriFly is (if I'm not mistaken) made from a heavier material.

    I agree with what Slowhike says ... there's something really nice about having that "porch" effect for those long rainy spells. Open and you can just sit there and enjoy the view and the rain ... and if you're camping with others ... they can share the space and chat. All in all ... not a bad thing!

    I finally finished tinkering. Overall I'm really happy with it and it is more comfy now:
    • Got rid of stock biners and rope
    • Girth hitched an amsteel loop with cinch buckles from AHE around the gathered ends
    • Added a structural ridgeline
    • Cut off the excess side material (the differently coloured parts)
    • Cut the stuff sac off and removed the buckle and webbing from it
    • Now using webbing for suspension with dutch clips

    This is the route I went while I still had my ENO. Now have the Whoopieslings All-in-One suspension on a basic diy and use the warbonnet net. The ridge line does make the hang more consistent but is not a requirement. Whether you go slings or straps, the modification to the ENO suspension as easy as cutting the stock whipping cord and threading your new suspension through the end channel.

    Just curious, this looks pitched way high. How tall are you to get in? Thanks.

    What are the actual dimensions of the DryFly?? The Eno site lists them as " 12' x 9.5' ", but my gut tells me the 9.5' dimension is measured from the widest points at the center tieouts. What about the width across the end tieouts?
    My knife is so sharp it cut the sixth finger off my right hand! On the plus side, Inigo Montoya no longer hunts me.

    It's a bit of an optical illusion, I'm 6' when I sit in the hammock it hits me just above my knees. I'm not climbing into it nor squatting down, I like this height.
