    pacific outdoor equipment d3 tarp

    Hey guys:

    another question... What about the pacific outdoor equipment d cubed tarp? Here's a link to their site:
    http://www.pacoutdoor.com/2007/index...=28&familyID=2

    It's on sale at REI for 85 bucks... 19 oz , coated nylon, lots of catenary cuts... It's a kite shape and says it's like 10 foot through one diagonal (or side or I don't know, whatever) and 12 foot through the other...

    The kite shape could be kinda wierd, but I was thinking I could pitch the 10 foot length above my hammock, then have one short side and one long side I could set up to block wind coming more from one side or to create a bigger gear space?

    Just an idea.
    Plus call me crazy but I kind of dig that orange.

    i like the looks of it. and its big enough. i think the lengths are the cross sections. If it fits the HH clone (tieouts). cause then it would be about perfect.

    and the orange is nice, just say buh-bye to stealth camping!

    For the hanger who wants a bigger porch, pretty cool, wish it was lighter.

    I've been looking for something just a little bigger than my sg 9x9 but I don't really need any more ridgeline coverage than I've already got, so I think the kite shape may be an interesting solution to if I make a new tarp...

    Maybe hex tarp on one side and diamond tarp on the other and you could always stake down the diamond side like it was a hex if you had to.
