    Tarp door questions

    I am trying to educate myself, shorten my learning curve and buy right the first time. I appreciate your help.

    I've decided on a WBBB and now I'm looking for a tarp. I want a 4 season so I'm thinking that should include doors. Now to my question; considering the above is their a manufacturer who's doors are made as part of the tarp and not an "add-on" type doors?

    I have an Old Man Winter tarp from Wilderness Logics and the doors or part of the tarp. You can see the seam of them. I absolutely love this thing and for a similar price as a tarp with similar coverage w/o doors, you can't beat it. Weighs 19.5 oz's as well and I could probably fit 2 hammocks under it in a pinch. Oh, and it also includes the pullouts on the side.. 2 on each.. not an add-on, just comes that way. Hike your own hike, but this would be my choice (was my choice) and it meets your specs and then some. You can either get the 132" ridgeline or the 144" as well for 10.00 more.

    Hope this helped

    The WB Superfly also has the doors built in. I think most of the cottage tarp makers here will have what you want.
