    Suggested winter tarp from Claytor jungle hammock

    Hey guys I currently have the stock Jungle hammock tarp. I am interested in getting a bigger one, if possible that I can close off the ends.
    I would like a bigger shelter for space and wind protection.

    Was looking at the Claytor 3x4 but I would need to add 4 more tie outs so i could close the door. Weighs about 1kg but is about $60 delivered

    The other option is a DD XL hammock but that is probably gonna be well over $100 AUD and still weights over 800 gms.

    any other models that you think might be suitable?

    Hi pazza! I have the Claytor 3X4 and it works great for all kinds of configurations. If you don't want to sew extra loops, just use those grip clips. You can put them anywhere you want on the tarp. I use it as a diamond fly by tying the corners over the top of the tarp. I also added a flexible tent pole at the center to really open it up. Take a look at my pictures and maybe it will give you some ideas.

    Depending on your budget, you could always order a tarp from JRB (11x10) or Speer Winter tarp. They will be over your $100 AUD. Backwoods Daydreamer has his Winter Dream Tarp that is quite popular.

    Have you checked with your local outfitters to see if they have a silnylon tarp about 3.5m x 3.0m (roughly 11'x10') and modify if need be? Last option would be to contact Noah Lamport and order some of their $3.00/yd silnylon and make one of your own. Actually, speaking of that, if you can find some lightweight ripstop nylon locally (1.1oz/yd^2 to 1.9oz/yd^2), you could make your own tarp and use the DIY Silnylon treatment to waterproof it yourself. This is probably the cheapest method.

    Cheers

    Hey guys Thanks for the help.
    I ended up going with the claytor as it was the biggest and cheapest.

    I didn't know about the grip clips!!! what a great idea. If i need more tieouts I will grab a few of them for sure.


    Thanks

    Dave

    I'm too late, but Ray Mears has a nice Aussie camo tarp.
