    If I get a better stuffsack/compression sack--it could be smaller.

    Really it depends how much time you want to spend packing it. Ive gotten it down to where it cut fit in a nalgene bottle, but that was with an hour of rolling and compressing and folding and repeating. I prefer to pack it in a drawstring bag because it takes 5 seconds to fit it in, and with a bungee on the outside, it compresses not much larger than any other large tarps

    Ok I going to be really lazy here and just ask. How much of a weight difference would there be With a diy Silnylon tarp of similar dimensions. I purchased some mismatched heavy nylon at walmart for a dollar something a yard I bought the whole bunch somewhere around 14 yards. I have been playing with a thread injector. I am not quite there yet. This tarp can be had for less than the diy materials it seems. So it seems like I viable option while I try to hone my injecting skills.

    I hate to bring up an old post like this but I though I needed to clarify the dimensions. My only reason for doing so is that this is the first HF post that comes up when searching for Kielty 12 tarp. I read it when doing my research and this thread lead me to believe the tarp would fill my needs when it does not. Kielty 12 tarps do measure 12'x12' when measured along the edges. However these tarps have a 12" cat cut on each side. This means if you want to use this tarp in an A-frame setup your ridgeline will only be 10' long. Since I'm trying to find a tarp for my recently finished bridge hammock, 10' won't cut it. It seems like a fine tarp otherwise.

    You could use the Noah in diamond setup.
    Otherwise I use a MEC (Canada only) straight cut rectangle tarp that's 12' 8" long and 9' 6" wide. I've used it in cold, wet, & windy conditions without problem over my Ridgerunner. A search of Amazon shows some 13'x10' silnylon tarps at $100 US which look similar.

    My green Kelty 12 has cat cuts much less than that! My ridgeline in A frame pitch measures 11.5 feet! We both have 11' Dutch netless hammocks and each used a Kelty 12 in the rain with no problems. I've used mine in heavy snow too.

    Check out this video for different pitch options:

    Pennsy that was a great idea on your pole mod using the S hooks. Nice work.

    For a low tech solution on your pole mod, I think you can just take some cordage and tie off your pole, to the ridge line to keep it from moving side to side. I think a clove hitch would work perfect for that. Tie it right where the pole and the ridge line meet. I am sure someone else can chime in on an even better solution.

    Be safe.

    What Bob said... , In stead of a Clove hitch use a Constrictor Knot, that's what I use for one of my mods...

    I have a noah. For most camping situations, it is overkill. I recently purchased a warbonnet thunderfly so the Noah will be staying at home. IMG_1624.jpegIMG_1354.jpg
