    ideal lightweight tarp for around $60

    Hey everyone, first post. I've been watchin shug, tiny, prof hammock, etc. on youtube for a while and wouldnt you know it? I've got the hammock bug now. I just got a eno DN and some webbing from JRB. I'm trying to find a quality, fairly lightweight tarp for around $60. I've been doing some research but cant find anything solid. I'm hoping to get some advice from you guys. As of right now I'm lookin at the ENO Dry Fly. Whats my best bet for a tarp? No snow, mild wind, and mild rain. I live in southern california so... nothing to crazy as far as weather goes. Thanks in advance btw. I appreciate it. Lots of good intel in here.

    Personally I dont' think you can beat a chinook for the price.. I take my Helo Hanger backpacking and have a baseweight probably between 13-15 lbs.. added a few things since last time I weighed it but nothing substantial.. then it was 11.6lbs. I could shave a pound off getting the smaller version of my tarp, a little over actually, I think 1.2 lbs would be saved.. for 100 dollars more I could shave off another 8-12 ounces but it's hard to shel out that kind of money, especially at this point haha. I wouls strongly recomend the chinook tarp if you want something that you'd use if she didn't and wont break the bank what-so-ever for a packable tarp.

    My first tarp was a 10X12 Equinox from Campmor.com. It was $44. It's a little heavy compared to my superfly a great tarp nuntheless.
