    Mamajamba Question

    I'm looking to get a hex tarp for my hammock. It's up between the Mamajamba and the Superfly. I REALLY like the idea of being able to close the doors up on the SF. However I am trying to cut down my weight and pack size. I've seen in one of Shug's vids that he closed up a smaller size tarp pretty nicely. Has anyone tried closing up an MJ in foul weather? And no, I do not want a Mama+Doors, might as well just own the SF then.

    Thanks for your time and help,
    Adam

    I've had both. You can't go wrong with the Superfly. Well worth the 5.5oz difference for the coverage you get.

    I have a Mamjamba and wish I had gotten the superfly. The extra 5 oz I can live with. Get the superfly and be happy.
    I got in a fight one time with a really big guy, and he said, "I'm going to mop the floor with your face." I said, "You'll be sorry." He said, "Oh, yeah? Why?" I said, "Well, you won't be able to get into the corners very well."

    If you want doors then the Superfly is the way to go. I myself prefer not having doors since my favorite thing about hammocking is that I can look around. I miss my Mambajamba...
    I like that the removable doors can be left home during the warmer months..

    You could always get a Grizz-Beak or two later if you need doors like during extreme cold or just use a sock.

    I added grosgrain tabs on the bottom edge of my tarp....about 20-24" in to create some doors.

    Re: Mamajamba Question

    Too tight of squeeze for my BMBH. That's why I upgraded to superfly.

    No right or wrong answer here.
    I have both and use the SF more.

    Jumpmonkey - To expand on my thoughts, I think for summer if the weather is supposed to be mild, I'd like something even smaller, like the Edge or a Tadpole. I would then pair that with a SF for the other seasons. But if I could only have one, it would be the SF.

    I was using the MJ in Novemeber, temps were ok, but where I camped at was windy. It was then I realized the benefit of the doors (which I didn't have at the time).

    I have a scale and count ounces, but decided carrying the SF is worth it for me.
