    I used the Noah 12 with my SBP and it works fine. The Noah 12 is a BIG tarp, but works great as a winter setup. I know Buffalo has a Noah 12 also, but he might have changed now. I also swapped to a AHE Shangri La tarp, but kept the Noah for cold and rainy hangs.

    Thanks aboyd!
    I think I'll get the 12. It's going to be my first to go along with my first hammock. Can't beat the price for a first timer. I'm also on the west coast of BC, so I'll be seeing a bit of rain up here and have a feeling I will be "living" under the 12 most of the time. Not to mention I'm 6'5" so I think I'll appreciate the size of it.

    Yes, aboyd and I hung out together back in December and we both had the Noah 12. I still have the N12 but I have placed an order for a custom tarp with a local vendor (I will post more as soon as I receive it and test--next weekend). It is a partial cat cut 10x11 made of 1.1 sil. It will have some special features not found on similar tarps.

    As I said, I will get the tarp and test next weekend, and post a review then.

    For the most part, the bigger, the better. To clarify, the bigger the hammock, the better opportunity to get a flatter lay.

    Will you be comfortable in a SB? Sure. Will you be more comfortable in a SB Pro? Maybe.

    I see this thread has been inactive a while but I have a question that I think you might be able to answer. I currently have the GT Traveler UL. I want a bug net, the BWCA has some nasty skeeters. How does the lay of the SBUL compare to the traveler UL. for $45 buck the SBUL sounds almost too good to be true. I am by no means a weight weenie as most of my hammock use is either on canoe trips, or camping with the family.

    The only GT with which I have any experience is the Skeeter Beeter Pro. Since last October, I have spent 39 nights in this hammock. I cannot say enough good about this hammock. I have modified it slightly, with a ridge line through the bug net, and I have tweaked the set up, and even list night did a little more. It can be used with the bug net, or without the bug net, by flipping it over with the net under the hammock. I have only slept without the net two nights, but will rig it this way tomorrow, when the temps will be down to 50° and below (ie, no bugs). This is just about the longest hammock on the market at 10' 6", though a few others are 6" wider. I get a very comfortable lay in this hammock at 6'1"/195 lbs.

    This is a great hammock at a great price. Admitedly I have never seen any other Grand Trunk, so I simply cannot offer any information beyond the SB Pro.

    Hope that helps.

    Hey Buffalo I'd love to see how you modified it to get a ridge line in there!
