    Talking WTB: A decent tarp for a new hanger

    Hey everyone!

    I'm new to hammocks and have a trip planned in April. I need to get a tarp nailed down and I wanted to see what people had available. I'm looking for something decent, but it doesn't have to be great by any means. I'm also looking for something cheap.

    My specific interest is with a diamond or cat-cut style. I will be using a GTUL hammock to start off with.


    Thanks,
    Matt

    Thanks for the heads up. Do you know about how much it weighs? I can't tell from the website.

    Can't confirm this but someone on another thread about the Guide Gear tarp said the 8 1/2 x 8 1/2 weighed just under 1 pound.
