    Tarp coverage for a 132" Hammock

    Hello fellow fans of the Dream Hammock, I have a DB 72 and a Roaming Gnome 60 both are 132" this is a bit of a tight fit under my superfly! Any thoughts on a tarp that offers a bit more coverage?

    What ridgeline length do you have for either of those? Superfly should be big enough. But if you what a 12' tarp, Wilderness Logics has them as does Arrowhead Equipment and OES to name a few.

    +1 on the Winter dream 12. It covers my DB72 just fine. In fact woke up in it this mornIng to a rainstorm. Just pulled the doors out from their release points and hopped back in hammock. No water coming in at all. But **** laying there listening to it made it hard to get up for work.

    They both have 110" fixed RL length, the Super Fly covers up and is a most excellent tarp, but leaves very little room for anything else on the ends, like a pack or the such. Just really looking for another option with a bit more coverage at the ends, I'll have a look at the options mentioned, thanks for the input! As a side note I'm really happy with how comfortable the longer length hammock is.

    I have the Roaming Gnome and I opted for the WL Big Daddy tarp with the 144" RL.

    If you buy a replacement, I might be interested in your Superfly, if you want to unload it.

    Thanks,
