Just another hanger
If you love it then that is great. I was not trying to convince you that it is not right for you. I was just stating why it was not right for me. If anone likes it and and has no problem using it, then it is for them.

Nevertheless, I really do like the shape of the MacCat tarp, too. It looks as though it can be a nice taut pitch over a hammock. Another small advantage of the JRB is that it only requires two stakes, one on each side of the hammock. Often it is not easy to get two stakes on a side planted as they might be on level ground in your backyard.
