    I found the JRB 8x8 to be good but a touch short for my Explorer Deluxe so I almost always use my MacCat Titan

    HOI is right on the small fit on the HH Explorer.... The JRB 8x8 is not recommended for the HH Explorer and any other 10 foot or larger models, such as the TC JH ....

    The JRB 8x8 tarp was designed to fit the HH BUL, HH ELR, HH AR, HH Exped, HH HL, HH Scout, TC Mosquito, TC Exped, Beyer Traveller, Beyer moskito, M1965 JH and civilian Knock offs, Eagles nest singles and doubles, Travel pod and most all other top loading hammocks.

    It is limited to this size by the available width of quality silnyl, due to its unique triangle panels and center ridgeline joining seam....

    FWIW, this is the lightest two panel, reasonable coverage aftermarket hammock tarp, and least expensive ( currently 20 percent off of even that)....good comparision chart link in earlier post.

    As Co Owner JRB I may be biased.

    Pan, you should find out where this comes from (check their fabrics section for 72") and check into making a larger version.

    Arkwater,

    We use the Cordura Silnyl at its current max width.

    We do keep an eye out.... and not all silnyls are equal....

    Cuben is a whole other world... light, non woven, expensive... some cutting edge stuff done by a few on backpackinglight...

    Have you had any exp with their 72" sil? I was thinking about getting some, but if its sub-par I'll skip it.

    Peter,

    I have been interested in Cuben fiber ever since redaing about it. It looks very "plasticy" in the pics I have seen. Does it have more of a cloth feel or more like plastic?

    Arkwater.... Have a silnyl Oware tarp, circa 2002... fine tarp, no issues, excellent construction... infact, Oware has a great reputation for tarps...

    Headchange4u... don't have any experiance, at this time, with cuben... have read that some think it is hard to sew... biggest issue, I believe, is that it should be carefully used due to thinness and being a laminated material vs woven.... some of it is quite light... very pricey.
