    why not look into a Hex tarp from HH i think there around $60
    most used tarps only sell for around $10-20 less the a new one ...
    only other option out there is get 2 5x7 Outdoor products tarps from wallyworld and sew them together but even then your looking at a 24oz tarp ....


    here is a link to the HH tarp ... the Hex for $59 .. but it's still a 23oz tarp

    It puts the Underquilt on it's hammock ... It does this whenever it gets cold

    The one I made came out to around 17 oz including snake skins, CRL, guylines, and seam sealing.

    thanks i couldn't remember off hand the total weight
    thats not a bad weight for a $20 tarp ... add some grosgrain pullouts on it and your set
    It puts the Underquilt on it's hammock ... It does this whenever it gets cold
