    Cool What to buy?

    Well I'm looking at rain flys
    My local outdoors supplier sells Eno
    Now my question is, do I go with the
    Profly rain tarp or the rain fly tarp?
    Both are nice looking, price isn't a problem nor is
    weight
    Just not sure witch one I want
    This is your one stop shop for all Hammock knowledge

    I am not a current owner of one but, from every review I've read both are not worth the money. You would be better off spending the money on a cottage industries tarp or DIY..YMMV
    Just when I thought you couldn't possibly be any dumber, you go and do something like this... and totally redeem yourself!

    Not worth the money. Get something by WBBB or others, or a good starter is a Kelty. As with any tarp, the bigger is usually better for inclement weather.

    OK, let me not answer your question, sort of.

    I don't have either of the tarps in question, but I do have the ENO Dryfly.

    It has deep cat cuts, and as with all ENO tarps. If you don't hang them low when in storm, you will get wet.

    I have the aforementioned Kelty tarps and I like my Dryfly far better due to the massive weight difference and I live in the south so I appreciate the airflow of the Dryfly. I have been in several downpours with the Dryfly and never got wet.

    So, in that, the ENO Dryfly tarp work great for me. It is lightning quick to put up and take down with the adjustment hardware already on the trap.

    So should you buy the Rainfly or the Profly? I haven't owned either, but if you want to include the Dryfly in your choice.....here is a happy and dry ENO owner.

    I agree the dryfly is good when it is setup properly
