    best tarp for 2 up bunk hang?

    I have a friend who kayaks, backpacks and hangs with her daughter... two hammocks between two trees. (Her husband doesn't camp.) They put mom's hammock on the bottom, and daughter steps in that one to reach her hammock. (I'll see if I can get pictures!)

    They have asked me to recommend a tarp. The tarp should be big, so they can have almost-headroom, as well as privacy. I came up with the tarps listed below. Are there more that would work for a 2 up bunk hang?

    [Added the suggestions as well!]

    TTTRailGear Cat Cut Tarp 144"x120"

    BWDD Winter Dream 11'x10'

    JRB Cat Tarp 11'x10'

    HH Hex Ripstop Rainfly 144"x115"

    WB SuperFly 132"x126"

    Tundra Tarp from Cooke ...many large sizes <heavy!>

    Kelty Noah 12 x 12

    Guide Gear 12x12 <Jan 2011>

    Custom OES tarp ???

    Gargoyle Gear Custom Tarp ???

    As Jack Nicholson said in Prizzi's Honor, "Do what? Do I ice her? Do I marry her? Which one of these? "

    I ordered the Superfly by WB. It is large , and has two extra tie outs on each side for those windy days. Will let you know more when they arrive

    Sounds like a custom job to me... perhaps a Kanasas City Shuffle? Seriously though that really sounds like a custom application.

    If they can wait until January, the Guidegear 12' x 12' should be available again.

    Or the Kelty Noah's 12, which is polyester as well. Can be used ala the Speer Winter Tarp for weather coverage and privacy.

    Mac, you should include the Tundra Tarps from Cooke Custom Sewing. They have "standard" large sizes of up to 10'x16' or 15'x15' plus all the usual smaller tarp sizes...all in two different weights of fabric. LOTS of tie outs for maximum flexibility.

    Cooke Custom Sewing is well-known to BWCA and Quetico canoe trippers.

    I added tie outs on the center to my GG tarp to pitch it square...tie guy lines to the inside pairs of side tie outs and you have doors too!
