    Door Kit is here.

    I had a package waiting for me when I got home today from work. It was my Tadpole door kit. Marty and I have been talking about a door kit for a while, so I was pretty excited to finally get to check it out. The kit weighed in at 3.5oz on my scale. This is actually one of the first sets, so a couple of the features you will see here have already been tweaked a bit.



    The door kit installs pretty easily. It attaches to the same loops that are used for the tie outs with a simple toggle (the toggle is one of the tweaks I was referring to). In my pics I'm using a small s-biner.

    There is a bit of shock cord that runs to the other end of the tarp and connects to the ridgeline with a mitten hook clip.



    Marty put some small strips of velcro where the doors come together. This is a really nice touch because it really seals up the end.





    The Tadpole was already my favorite tarp, but with the addition of the door kit, I'm confident I can handle just about anything that Mother Nature can throw my way.

    Oh yeah that is awesome! I am going to have to get one of those. If Marty makes you an orange one to match that tarp i'd be willing to take the black one off your hands. Just saying.

    Great looking door kit and I like that you don't need to have a bunch of extra stakes like with the Grizz Beaks to put it on.

    Yep...Looks like they would work on my edge tarp...
    Wonder if Marty would make a half kit... Gonna have to call...
    We would be one step closer to world peace, if everyone slept in a hammock..

    I really like the idea of a three sided tarp It really gives good wind protection and you can stick the hammock all the way to the door side which gives good rain protection.

    Appears I will be ordering these.
    If it moves, you can eat it. No promises you will think it tastes good.

    I agree. I do this with a grizz beak right now, but my next tarp will have doors built in on one side.

    This door kit seems to fit really nicely. Looks like a great addition to a popular tarp.
