    I use the zpacks cuben hammock tarp because I had a little expendable cash at the time. For a fairly cheap tarp, I am convinced the tadpole is by and large the best deal from a weight/$/coverage standpoint.

    I will put in a plug for the Cooke Custom Sewing 1.1oz silnylon 8'x10' Tundra Tarp. CCS Tundra Tarp 1.1oz

    CCS makes awesome gear, you will find huge flexibility with this one. At $119, it's just a touch more than you mentioned, but comes with 80' rope and so many tieouts it makes a person drool.....

    As someone that usually hangs in central Georgia, I will say that, while we don't get all of the snow that others up north get, as you know, when it rains here, it can really, really rain. That said, I tend to prefer a more full-coverage tarp to make sure that I keep my happy self dry

    I started with a Warbonnet Superfly and also got the doors with it. I believe that it now comes with the doors attached and costs a little more. That said, I notice that they have Big Mamba Jambas for around $110 that have good coverage and no doors, and you can purchase doors for it later if you want.

    Just my thoughts.

    I've been eyeing the bushcraft USA 10x10 for 60 bucks. Captain smiley had one at the spring swing this past march. For the price and the 1lb weight I think its worth it. Here is the link

    Cabelas currently has the Kelty 9 and 12 Noah tarps on sale for $42 and $49 dollars respectively. Bang for the buck, that's very difficult to beat.

    Well, those all are GREAT suggestions, but I just don't have the cash and wanted to hang....

    SO, I went to Wally World, bought some plastic sheeting, and did a little DIY with some things I had at home and went hanging.

    I will keep all of those in mind, though. Here's a picture (hopefully) of my temp setup...
