    Looking For A 10' x 5' Tarp

    Hey guys, I was wondering if anyone here knew where I could find a 10' by 5' tarp. I would ideally want it to be either *1.3 oz silicon impregnated ripstop nylon* or *70D 1.9 oz ripstop nylon*, the weights of the fabric could be slightly different. The dimensions are important. Any suggestions? Thanks!

    You could buy an inexpensive hammock and use that as a 10x5 tarp.

    Thats an idea, however I think that most hammocks are not made out of waterproof fabrics. Also it would need to have tie outs, and Im not handy with a thread injector otherwise I would just make one myself

    Here's a source for one, either silnylon or cuben: http://www.bearpawwd.com/tents_tarps/tarps.html

    But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed. (Luke 5:16 NIV)

    He said to them, “But now let the one who has a moneybag take it, and likewise a knapsack. And let the one who has no sword sell his cloak and buy one." (Luke 22:36 ESV)

    While people are saying, “There is peace and security,” then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. (1 Thessalonians 5:3 ESV)

    Why do you want such a narrow tarp? That's pretty skimpy coverage. Also, I don't think your Lite Owl is made from silnylon, not unless you custom-ordered one because you like to sweat.

    Thanks, correction made. Not for wet weather coverage of a hammock.

    Thanks MDSH, exactly what I was looking for.

    Consider the thread closed.
