    He is pretty smart... I'm sure he could do it for you if you ask him nicely.

    Brain's a smart guy, but ou probably want sil doors instead of spinn - tarp doors don't act the same as a tight cat tarp, so if they're made from spinn or cuben they'll likely keep you awake all night everytime the wind whispers.

    I'm getting my doors permanently sewn on.

    Thats the same combo I have. My Superfly is my big, gotta have cover tarp. My Maccat standard spinn is pretty much my 3 season tarp. It fits my BB & Traveler perfectly. I think you did good! I'm also thinking about having my doors sewn on to my Superfly....

    I emailed Brian and this is his response:

    "Both tarps will work, although the Deluxe offers a nice size bump, especially for the dimensions of the WBBB. The extra length helps give better coverage in high winds and spraying rain, that while not required, is certainly a nice cushion for under-the-hammock protection."

    Based on this I changed my order to the Deluxe. I've been looking forward to finally getting a MacCat after reading all the fantastic reviews on this forum.

    You are lucky

    I ordered a tarp from Brian at the same time you did and have not received it, I live in the same state he does too! I've even emailed him twice with my PayPal transaction number and he has not responded back. Consider your self lucky that you got one.

    Sorry to hear that it hasn't been a good experience for you. I had absolutely no issues. I found his communication very prompt and he was very accommodating when I requested an upgrade from the standard to the delux. The email address he was using is brian"at"outdoorequipmentsupplier.com

    OK, I received my tarp today and am very happy with the quality work Brian does. I used to sew so I have some back ground of knowledge. I hate my new sewing machine so don't sew anymore. His work is nice if anyone is thinking about one of his tarps. Pam
