So I just got done an over night trip in french creek state park here in PA on Friday. I got my tarp set up just before the rain started and it rained all night. Not 5 min after the rain started and it started raining under my tarp! It appeared that the leaking was coming from the seam down the ridge line on my tarp. I bought the tarp back in 2009-2010 time period. I have never used it in the rain and have only only had it set up a few times. Has anyone experienced this? Should I just use seam sealer to try and fix it or is my tarp trash. Thankfully I had the standard tarp that comes with the hammock as well. I set it up underer the leaking hex tarp so i didnt get wet and had a good night sleep. Thanks for the help!
On a side note, I just bought a new down sleeping bag and HG incubator UQ and do not want them to get wet. I am skeptical about using the standard tarp in bad weather since it offers less coverage. Should I be? Do you stay pretty dry with the standard tarp? Thanks again.
