Yes it does make it a bit tighter but in a bad storm you will thank the kelty noah for the doors option.
I had one of these before I got back into hammocks, I used it on my re-intro hammock trip to cover two hammocks connected to three trees.
Love mine. Good in rain. Great tarp for the $. This is a big tarp.
thanks this review really helped me out because i have been looking at this tarp for awhile now and have got down to 2 tarps the eno super fly and the kelty 12 tarp so thanks again for your review.
Great thread, very helpful. I was debating between the 9 & 12.
I enjoy a large tarp also. When on a bike trip and never knowing what kind of weather may be encountered its nice to be able to keep things dry. The Kelty 12 with the right set up can keep the hammock dry and most of the weather off the bike and still allow for a dry spot for a couple of chairs to visit with friends.
These are great to set up as a groop shelter when truck camping but its a bit heavy for back packing.I go as light as possible if I have to carry it.
I'm ordering mine this week.
I'm new to this forum, have a Hennesey with the oversized fly, and have been deep woods camper since the 70's. Perhaps these are known here, but I haven't heard them mentioned.
i've had my eye set on the 15x15 for group canoe camping in the rain forest otherwise known as the Adirondacks. These appear to really be the ticket, note the loops spaced along all the interior seams. Allows you to configure them in a number of ways securely. 2lbs 8oz but many smaller and lighter. a bit of $$$$, but I've looked into buying the fabric to make my own ,and for the small amount i would need, the price breaks mean it would be about the same.
I have three in college, so I have to figure a way to sneak one...lol.
