My Tadpole was set a little high over the hammock when a storm came up today. The wind was blowing and we had 1 inch of rain in about 30 minutes. I was sure that my underquilt and hammock were getting wet, but when I went out after the storm, they were dry! Yay, Tadpole!! I'm used to a Noahs 12" and I've been leary of this little tarp, but it worked well.
