    Love mine.
    Here is a diagram for those unfamiliar.
    Also, it comes with a ton of tie outs, but you have to add two to use it with a hammock.

    Compared to the space age stuff some on here have, this is heavy and bulky.
    Compated to Walmart blue tarp, this is light years better.

    OK, So there are no tie outs on the center ridge line points? Darn I hate to sew, but I guess I can add them for my friend, not a prob. for the price.

    That is the layout? Seems to be as you mention - a 10' x 10' tarp with slight extensions. Makes a difference for me. I have one already - was going to buy another but was really looking for a 11' or 12' ridgeline. Thanks for putting this up.

    There is a slight cat cut to this tarp.
    Center line length and center line width are stats you dont see often on tarps, but I think they are useful stats.

    My measurements may be off some.
    My DIY hammock is 120" and this tarp is plenty big enuf.
    I also have the chinoook which is more rectangular and has a slightly longer ridgeline, but I prefer the long sides of the Guide Gear.

    Yes, you do have to add two tie outs.

    Well if they are off some - your measurements - (I somewhat doubt it - you seem thorough) and it is closer to 11' ridge I would be more inclined.

    I could but wouldn't it be a ridgeline around 14' or so? That's huge!

    Yes!

    This really is a BIG tarp. Diamond style is even bigger, and you definitely get more than you bargain for.
