    Help with Jungle Tarp selection

    Hi, I'm after some advice from members who have experience with hammocks in the jungle. I'm heading out on a 2 week jungle trek in Borneo in April, with hammocks being the sleeping setup. I will be using my Claytor Jungle Hammock. I am looking for a larger tarp than the Claytor comes with, but it obviously needs to be very robust and capable with dealing with heavy downpours regularly.

    The DD Tarp XL (3m X 3m) tarp has been recommended to me but I am worried that this may be a little to large for the jungle. Does anyone have any experience with the DD, or know of a tarp that will fit my needs?

    Any advice greatly appreciated.

    I have a DD, but haven't used it yet. They have a seconds sale on right now, and you can get a tarp for a very good price.
