    Hello gang! New ECO singlenest user. Picked it up while on a camping trip to Acadia National Park. Not knowing what I was doing (first time hammock user), I had a structural ridgeline as my first setup with a 6x8 tarp as a simple A-frame overhead. thermarest basecamp & sleeping bag completed the "setup"

    First night was great, but had rain the next day (and you guessed it), got soaked. the tarp was too small.

    So now I'm looking for a rain fly. Was considering the ECO DryFly, but from reading the forums, looks like there are some nice alternatives - my preference seems to be MacCat but unsure which size to get.

    Welcome to the site. Word is the DryFly is lacking in coverage, It looks great though.
    Go with the MacCat Deluxe. I'd personally go with either a Speer Winter (all seasons)
    tarp or a JRB cat tarp. All great tarps.
