    eno profly sil

    I'm looking for a tarp to use with my double nest. I,ve ckecked different retailers and the profly sil seems to be the lightest and most compactable. Has anyone used this or have other suggestions? My only worry is if there's a huge sidewind during a rainstorm. Thanks to all responders!

    I don't think I've read any positive comments about that tarp. I've no personal experience with it, just living vicariously thru my forum friends.

    Stay away! Far, far away! ENO tarps have horrible coverage, especially if side wind-driven rain is a concern for you. I've used the DryFly when I was a hammocking noob, and was bitterly disappointed in it. You're a lot better off doing more research, particularly when it comes to cottage tarp manufacturers/suppliers like Jacks r Better, Speer and OES, etc. Save yourself a lot of trouble and heartache now and avoid that ENO tarp.

    He'll be OK. He's been offered a visit to Casa Cannibal for a tarp demo day.

    Smooth move, Ex-Lax. Cool deal for hooking him up. Keep homeboy far away fom anything ENO makes, excepting hammocks.

    ENOs new tarp is sil, so it weighs less. So atleast they are listening to the consumer in some areas. They still refuse to get away from the crappy pattern though. Give them time.

    Odd, I would have thought it wouldn't weigh too much with how much it packs down to
