    Tarp with Claton Jungle Hammock?

    First-time hammock buyer here so go easy with me, folks.

    I will be getting a Clayton Jungle Hammock and would like to get a bigger tarp to use with it. I like the tent-like tarp setup but don't know what size I'd need to do this with the Jungle Hammock. I'm guessing it would have to be longer than the Clayton's 13' length and roughly 10' to pull down on both sides to get the tent effect so would something like 11.5 x 15.5 be enough or waaay too much?

    Yeah, I saw that one. Seems like a sweet deal. I thought this one was also a decent price from Campmore http://tinyurl.com/2bold8 It's a hair over 2.5lbs though! It's either going to be that or Clayton's 3mX4m fly.

    I hope you're not packing that behemoth in somewhere. Wayyyyyyyyy heavy, if you ask me. Go with something much lighter like a JRB, Speer Winter Tarp, The Preacher's Wife Tabenacle Tarp or the Claytor 3m x4m.

    Yeah, I figured that's heavy. I'm most likely looking at the Claytor's 3x4.
