    Cuben tarp/trip

    I want to say thanks to jenny and adam for getting the tarp to me before my trip. It is so incredibly light with so much coverage. The workmanship is excellent. Only problem I have is having to share it with my son and using my silnylon tarp . After a day of rain I just shook it off and slid the no-see-um skins on and I swear it was dry . If I were using a sil tarp and skins it would have been wet and heavy. The first picture is with one hammock. The other two pictures have two hammocks under it.
    Thanks
    Oms

    honestly, it reminds me of wavey shower doors.

    you can see an outline, but the details are blurry!!

    Great looking Photos there OMS. Thanks for posting them. I may use a couple of them on the site if you don't mind.. I really like the double hammock hang as well. I am glad you like it!

    That might make it easier to center the tarp over your hammock when setting up.
