    Hands down go with a DD HAMMOCKS Tarp. All i've got to say is you can get a light, durable, enormous tarp (10x14) for less and better than a DIY. $80
    Out of those recommended in this old thread, this I think is the winner. Does anyone know of a better deal to cover 2 hammocks side by side? http://www.ddhammocks.com/product/tarp-xl

    “The word hammockable (Meaning: two trees that are the perfect distance apart between which a hammock can be hung) is not in the dictionary, but it should be.”

    Box store poly tarps are cheap and effective, but loud and heavy. I've used them where weight wasn't an issue and they work fine.

    Cottage vendors make some great lightweight and effective tarps, but the price is usually at a premium. I've used some of these to and they work fine also.

    Companies like Kelty have some entries in the market that seem to fall in the middle ground ... not as light weight as the cottage stuff, but at a more median price point. I have some of these and they work great as well.

    DIY is a great option also if you have the skill and opportunity.

    All sort of have strengths and weaknesses that you can plan around.

    I ended up going with 2 superflys to cover 4 hammocks. Just wish I could get multicam.
