    That is why I love my door kit from Brandon, you can put 2 on one side,or one on each side.. One half door kit is very versatile, and all I need
    Until the superfly has to come out that is..
    We would be one step closer to world peace, if everyone slept in a hammock..

    Sorry but I've seen the wind shift multiple times in a day, I would get doors built in or a set of portable doors that you can switch sides when needed.

I decided (much like GeorgeMaung) that I can always go with a tarp without doors later if I really don't like the setup of the doors.

    Thanks again for the input!
    You are going to LOVE your purchase!!

    I did the same thing this summer and have not regretted the decision. I'm in TX and have used my doors in the Guadalupe Mountain NP as well as my most recent trek into the Grand Canyon and Supai. Once was for a brief but nasty rain that passed quickly. This can happen often in TX. I immediately rolled my tarp into its snakeskins once the clouds passed and enjoyed the west Texas night sky the rest of the night. I used it on my Grand Canyon trip for privacy. I stayed at a campground where a monsoon type flash flood had washed out nearly a third of the campsites the prior week and sleeping quarters were close in the campsites. The HG Cuben Fiber with Doors is simply light and amazing!!
