    Question Hybrid Tarp Idea...

    What do you guys think of making a tarp which would be a combination of an Ultra combined with a Speer 12x10 (one side Speer copy one side Ultra)

    Can anyone for see any issues with such a tarp?

    I was thinking that such a hybrid hammock would have the best of both worlds, weight savings of the Ultra and weather performance of the Speer.

    The only catch would be that the user would always have to try and face the Speer side towards where the weather would be coming from for best results.

    One other idea would be to do half/half the other way. Also with this design maybe one could pull the hammock close to the speer side with its closed doors and on the other side you'd have the exit with the ultra's massive cat cut.
