    I personally like side pullouts.

    I have Grip Clips on my tarp with no stock pullouts. Very easy solution that does not involve sewing.
    what are grip clips ?

    You should take pictures of it with your hammock hung under the tarp. The 12' ridgeline is going to limit how close you can get it to the ground without the tarp hitting your hammock suspension. In either case, it would take some serious horizontal rain for you to get wet under that tarp.

    Good job and great colour for the pine woods.

    Cheers

    well i had the tarp RL hung at almost 6' cause im 6' tall and it was just a lil shorter than i was so i dont see any problems fitting ANY hammock under it lol i do understand that this tarp is a little overboard as far as size but i also wanted it to double as a ground shelter too and have a large porch to sit under if its raining and i want to watch it

    Very nice looking tarp, Digging the color and the coverage it offers.
    Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.

    Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.
