    11ft by 5ft tarp

    I bought 13ft x 5.5ft of 1.1 silnylon for a DIY tarp and pack cover. Plan to keep 10-11ft for the tarp.

    Anyone use a tarp that is 10-11x5.5 for 3 season and have problems with the coverage?

    As long as it goes past the end of my hammock, and I have a drip line on the suspension, I can use a smaller tarp. You just have to hang it lower the smaller it is.

    You'd be surprised how little you can get away with...unless it's flat out sideways rain. Then you'd wish for a bigger tarp.
