    JRB Tarp Tent Pre-purchase List?

    Hey folks,

    I've noticed several comments regarding the much anticipated JRB tarp tents.
    Others may know the status of these tarps, design details etc.
    I wanted to start this thread for those that are already ready,willing and able to make a purchase.
    Please post in this thread if you are:

    a) A guaranteed customer for a JRB tarp tent when they are released.

    b) You have any confirmed information regarding, design details, price or availability on the JRB tarp tents.

    Hopefully this will make life easy for the Jacks and help them to gauge the immediate demand for the product.
    I also was hoping to channel some of the more random comments about these products into one solid place.
    There were several other threads that I was trying to follow but have lost track of because the posts were
    not exactly on topic to the original idea being discussed.
    I am hoping to gather in this thread, the specific details of the product. eg: exact sizing, who has tested one,
    thoughts, opinions?, will they be compatible with many of the common hammock designs speers, HH, DIY etc?
    Final weights? Stuff size? Pricing and availability?
    Please post if you can answer any of these questions.
    If someone has already taken this initiative, I apologize. Please direct me to the appropriate list to post my name and I will delete this thread.

    I wanted to start a thread like this so bad. I'm glad that you did it. I wrote Pan about the tarp tent earlier and he said:
    the 8x8 tarp tent is on the back burner at this time... working the other model first.... no price yet and probably will be a few months until work is done by the factory.

    We won't forget you when they get closer....hope to get them before winter.

    Pan
    I will go ahead and say I will definitely be up for one of the 8x8 tarp tents when they become available. Definitely.

    Ok Guys and Gals,

    First, we are not ignoring you.... Please undestand that meeting demands on current products, read quilts comes first.... The TD sale which was also on the net has had great results... We should have all the back orders shipped in 7-10 days.

    Second, understand that we are having a US Factory produce the Bear Mtn Bridge Hammock and the JRB Tents.... Getting prototypes to the proper point of development and producability is a major effort of a lot of folk....We will not post the details until the trial runs are complete and actual production models can be weighed, measured etc....We anticipate that another 45 - 60 days of work is necessary.... Then there will be some lead time for the full production runs....

    We are working to have them available before winter.

    JRB Hammock And Tarp Tent Picture

    Here is the much awaited photo. No specs. Both are still in the prototype stage. Note - one side of the tent is thrown back over the top.

    From what I can tell the tarp tent is very similar to Youngbloods design here http://www.whiteblaze.net/forum/vbg/...r&imageuser=41.

    it ends up w/ a similar shape, but i believe it may be a little roomer & a little less complicated to set-up.
    plus, you can roll the walls up & velcro them if not needed on the jrb hammock tarp.
    i believe youngblood may be working on another version that will be less problem to set up too.
    where you run into problems is when you try to stake the walls down taught on a slope.
    don`t leave the CREATOR out of the creation!

    From what I saw of youngblood's tarptent, it was basically a large tarp with a lot of tieouts that you could use to give it that shape.

    The Jack's tarptent is shaped like a roof and walls. Picture a small buildings roof and side walls.
    Is that too much to ask? Girls with frikkin' lasers on their heads?

    JRB are coming out with a model very similar to Youngblood's tarp tent as well as the one based on the 8x8 tarp. I like the 8x8 version much better because of the extra room inside. Pan said that 3 ground dwellers as well a a hammock can reside under the 8x8 tarp tent. I might actually get my wife to go with me with a setup like that.

    Pan,

    I hope that you don't feel we are rushing you. I just get overly excited sometimes and I really like your tartp tent. I will wait patiently (is it done yet? ) until I can get one.

    Smee,

    Thanks for posting the pic. I was driving me crazy not knowing what the design was like. I realize it's a prototype but I do feel better knowing the basic design now.

    Honestly how could Tom Hennessy say that the ridge line system on that hammock in any way resembles what is on a HH?

    Apparently JRB agrees with me. That is not a ridge line but a suspension system. Now HH will have some real competition on there hands.
