My first post, woho.
I've been reading through pages and pages of sites and forums over the past month or so.
After all my reading I've deduced that I want to get a WBBB, surprise, surprise..
The only 2x options I was really looking at were either the WBBB or Mosquito hammock. Claytor Mosquito hammock looks great to have in summer here, in Sydney Australia, though I like lot of the features on the WBBB.
Anyhow- so assuming I get the WBBB. I now need to purchase a rain-fly.
After more reading, Im looking towards the larger tarps that can be used for a cooking/relaxing area and will keep well dry in windy/ torrential rainy conditions. (so not looking at the diamonds - as have read they don't cope in windy rain very well).
Have been looking at the Hennessy -Hex Rainfly 70D Polyester $59 -
Dimensions: Size 144" on centerline x 120" wide hexagonal shape/
12' x 10' Weight: 18.6 oz / 530 g
Hex Rainfly 30D Sylnylon $130 -
Dimensions: Size 144" on centerline x 120" wide hexagonal shape
Can anyone tell me the difference between the pros/cons Polyester vs synylon, other than price and 100grams difference?
Also, I watched a few reviews and seen another post on hennessy Hex tarp with the 'rain funnel attachment'. - which I rekon is a really cool idea. Can't seem to find it on their website anymore, but a DIY rain funnel would not be hard to make. (some people think its gimmicky- but I rekon is a very good idea in aussie climates) with torrential rain, then long dry spells with little water.
Another Tarp I've been considering is the basic:
BIG RAIN FLY (3x4m.) from http://www.mosquitohammock.com/ --Dimensions: Rectangle shape - 300cm wide x 400 long (9' 9" wide x 13' long). Weight: 1.0kg. (2lb.)
Anyone suggestions would be appreciated?
