    That's a sweet pitch man. Those tarps are a bit heavy but they are good quality and can sure get the job done.

    For the coverage at 900g (2#) it's a fair trade-off, using 1.1 ripstop 12X12 (16yds) would weight 500g plus another 100g for thread, tie-outs, other misc hardware, and seamsealer, not to mention the cost and time involved DIY... I'm pretty happy with the Noah 12 considering it was under $50 shipped....

    Definitely a great value. I own one myself. For a 2 person hang it's my go to tarp.

    3) stake out four "CORNER" ground stakes, will need to work around tarp a few times adjusting till tight and square across bottom... make sure doors are closed with a biner at bottom loops... note tarp is tight and square across bottom but still hanging loose on ridge line...

    4) Tighten prusik sliders on ridge line done...

    Might have to play around with this but I think this is correct... here's results...

    I have a Kelty 12 and never thought to use it in this mode. Thanks for the pitching instructions.

    My setup. A view from inside and some various angles. Not quite as good as sr1355 but this was my first attempt. I didn't have time to really dial this in but I was in the hammock for over 45 minutes with my 20-degree bag and Ray Way TQ and was pretty warm. I'll say that the winter mode of this tarp added about 7 to 10 degrees of warmth. Good stuff.

    I was considering selling my Kelty Noah 12; but after seeing that setup, I think I'll keep it for winter hangs.

    It's a great tarp for the money...It will stay in my collection until I have time to build a custom winter tarp...

    Same hear. I bought a smaller and lighter tarp to use other times, but my Noah 12 will hang around until I get something different that can fill it's place.
