    Tarp Door Orientation?

    When trying to get the most protection from blowing rain and snow, what is the best method to orient the tarp doors? I have been pitching my tarp as shown just because it seems to pitch nicer this way, but would taking the doors out and away from the hammock provide better coverage?

    That's what I'd do in bad weather. The only thing is if the doors are over lapping athe entrance, I make sure they over lap with the side that is facing the wind be the door that goes over the other door. The other way around, the door could catch wind.
