    Tarp modification



    I had bought a UST hex tarp a while back with the thought of using it for summer hangs. When it arrived I realized that I didn't look at the dimensions as well as I should have and my hammock was a bit too long. So I ordered some 1.1o oz coated ripstop and had a friend help me add in the spacer. Good thing I'm not going for looks. I just got to seal the seams up today and it's holing up great.

    The size of that UST tarp fooled me too. I bought one and it doesn't work for me, but it works great for my kids' short ENO travelers, with enough sag at least.

    I like what what you did with yours. Seems to be a decent tarp but for the size.

    Yeah I have no complaint about the tarp, it seems like great material. I messaged UST about possibly making a longer one to add to their line up, hopefully we will see one soon.
