I own the Eagles Nest set up (hammock, net, and tarp). I do have to say although I've used it during a hard rain last spring without any leaks it is rather heavy. Also as someone mentioned above not only do you have to have the two "ridgeline" tieouts there are also six others to stake in the ground and/or to low brush, rocks... If I had to do it again, I'd get a rectangular tarp that has the option of tieing out like an a-frame in bad weather or tieing it diagonaly in better weather. It does have a funky shape though. But I doubt that's a good selling point.
