    Here are a couple pics I found after doing a quick search. I have a couple friends that use them and the Deluxe gives plenty of coverage.

    Watch the rain.

    You won't get wet and there are different ways to pitch a tarp in case you get that crazy side rain.

    However, a person usually hangs there tarp to block any oncoming wind. So, even if you get the side rain, you will be good to go.

    This was from my first winter hang last year. Its over an ENO Doublenest. You can see the hammock from the side because of the angle of the cut from the ridgeline to the tie out. It provides plenty of coverage from all angles of rain.

    Don't let life get in the way of living.

    ^This. Even as it's shown in my photos, the rain would have to be blowing into the end at about a 45* angle to get the hammock and can be lowered for worse conditions.

    Correct setup with my Deluxe and warbonnet helps with rain and wind direction. Even with the best of choice, sometimes the wind changes directions. If I am getting spray through one end I would hang my packa across the tarp opening and tie it off to the ridgeline and bottom corners of the tarp. That has always worked for me.

    AND THEN I got the great idea of having 2Q and his lovely wife add doors to my tarp. Wonderful solution. A small weight penalty, but worth it, to avoid getting up in the middle of the night to fight the wind
