    Here is my GrizzBridge under a Speer Winter Tarp.... this tarp isno longer made but similar to some. Dimensions: Ridgeline .... 128" or 10' 7"
    Width at narrowest .... 102" or 8'6"
    Weight ... 16.95 ounces or 1 pound .09 oz or 480 gram
    In my opinion Bridges need a long ridgeline due to the bridge type suspension.

    I agree with shug on the ridgeline, and personally feel more comfortable with a rectangular tarp. The Ogee also looks like it would work. I could get decent coverage with my WB BMJ, but am unsure how it would have done in a rainstorm.

    You are going to use a Dutch bridge? I don't know anything about the dimensions of those. I have used a JRB bridge, which has about 9'6" between the outer rings ( I think the new ones are meant to be adjusted a few inches shorter than that). So a 10 foot tarp will extend a few inches past those rings.

    However, I tried a MacCat Dlx with the JRB, and with the hex cut it seemed pretty marginal to me. I don't think I would want to use a tarp much smaller than my JRB 10x11 rectangular cut with it, unless I had some sort of undercover or add on doors. But that is just me, some people get by with a good bit less tarp than I like.

    Don't forget, you are going to need room for the spreader bars!
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.
