    does the cloud burst tarp needto be seam sealed?

    Hey guys, I just received an early birthday present in the mail(thanks to the holiday sale) ---a rr hammock and a cloudburst tarp. This is my first warbonnet purchase----does the tarp need to be seam sealed? (or does it not require it?) Thanks!
    FYI: If you want to know what type a certain bear is, sneak up behind it and kick it. Then,
    run like crazy and climb up a tree. If the bear climbs the tree and eats you, it's a black
    bear. If the bear just pushes the tree over and eats you, it's a grizzly bear : )

    The side pull outs could use it, but the ridgeline is good.

    I sealed the pull-outs on my new Cloudburst (on the inside only) just yesterday! Laying it out on the table brought home to me just how big that tarp is.

    I'm not sure if I'll seamseal the pull-out seam on the outside...Do any of you do that, or is it overkill?


    Stevebo, as mentioned by fallkniven, WB tarp ridgelines don't need sealing. My Edge tarp has never leaked. (knocks wood)

    Yep...seal the side pullouts on the inside and the ridgeline tie out reinforcements if you want to.

    The ridgeline itself is not supposed to need sealing with Brandon's design.
