    Maybe add the Kelty Noah 9x9 and 12x12 tarps. Great article!

    What do other think? I contacted Kelty about these tarps and they admitted that they are not waterproof. They recommended buying a tent if you were looking for serious rain protection

    I would hate to recommend these tarps to people knowing that they are essentially sun shades, where we rely on them for weather protection.

    Thoughts?

    I'm 99% sure I don't want to do this simply because it's way too much data to manage. I specifically did not include a lot of rigging hardware as well (e.g., Dutch Clips, Elephant Trunks, etc.) for the same reasons. I thought this "calculator" would be helpful as a general outfitting tool and comparison mechanism, but not "custom detailing." A lot of cottage manufacturers allow you to customize nearly every gear they offer, but that too became too much to manage.

    Good catch. I've fixed that (unfortunately).

    My Kelty Noah 12 sure seems to be pretty well "waterproof" to me...no issues with it, and I know quite a few people use these tarps as well as the 9' in a diamond configuration.

    So, that explains why the folks I put under my spare Kelty 12 x 12 got drenched. Who knew?

    As for the a la carte idea, I love it in concept but in practice, I too am unable to see any pull down menus and I am on IE ver 8.

    Ha-ha! I would snag it in no time if this typo had to be from seller not You but I have to save up money enough to sometime buy nice camping hammock and real quilts. Calculated for nice setup and easily this can overshoot one grand

    This is awesome, and I'm sure it was lot of work. Thanks for putting this together, it will undoubtedly be very popular.

    Nice, very nice. I now know that my beginner setup from two years ago was less than $150, and my current setup is $1100.

    This should really help noobs on a budget to see the difference between what they can afford, what they want, and the gulf between the two. I think I spent my entire first year on the forums trying to convince myself that I could have cheap AND ultralight, which is definitely not the case.

    One thing that may not be readily apparent (especially to noobs) is that the comparison chart has drop-down menus, but entry-level, low cost and ultralight do not. I found it a wee bit confusing.

    Also, it might be useful to show approximate costs for DL versions of Warbonnet, BIAS, Dream Hammocks, etc. This might help people struggling between DL hammock and pad, or single layer and UQ.

    A nifty bit of code (not that I'm a programmer) for Swiss Army hammocks with integrated bugnet would automatically change the value under bugnet to N/A (included with hammock).

    Great job!
