    you know neo and me, same wavelength all the time, hard to tell our posts apart.

    Got my tarp today, it is indeed a really nice color.

    What I wouldn't do to get a line on the sil source the Jack's manufacturers have on the moss green and cattail brown colors...

    although to get at it I suppose one would have to buy 2000 yards a time or something....

    We'd all help you out, Grizz. I'd buy a lot myself...

    I think the thread title is a misnomer.

    Speer sells the 'Speer Winter Tarp' (scroll down), which is an 11'x10' tarp. Since JRB also sells an 11'x10' tarp, the two get confused often.

    Thanks - it was getting me confused.

    I remember some time back that JRB had some winter tarps fashioned after the work done by Youngblood. More of a tent than my version of a tarp.

    I thought maybe they were talking about those.

    Whatever happened to them?? If I remember correctly, they created some excitement for a while and nothing ever happened.

    The last I heard of them, Turk was doing some extreme product field testing for them.

    Perhaps one of the Jacks will chime in and give us an update.

    Some folks get confused by the hammock tarptents I designed back several years ago and posted photos on the Yahoo Hammock Camping Group and on WhiteBlaze. As far as I know, that was the pioneering work on enclosing hammocks with a tarp or tent like structure but that design was never put in production.

    I used what I learned from that when I designed what became the Speer WinterTarp which Speer Hammocks started selling last fall. The WinterTarp is not as complicated, sets up easier that my original design, and sets up very taut in a variety of pitches, more so that other large tarps because of the use of 4 strategically placed catenary darts along with the catenary cuts on all ten edges of the tarp. To my knowledge it is the first tarp design to use catenary darts to improve tautness of variable pitch options and the first to shape the corners so they don't tend to drag the ground when you pitch close to the ground and want to angle the corners inward over a wide range to block wind. The catenary darts form somewhat of a hinge line for the shaped corners of the tarp when they function as independent doors or flaps. These independent doors or flaps allows for more variation in how one handles blocking the wind without adding too much to condensation issues when the wind dies out. You often need to compromise in how you handle wind versus having adequate ventilation... and vice versa.

    I back the 5 star rating...only my 5* is for the Cattail Brown one....talk about awesome color...it's the type of brown that from a distance looks like the deep dark olive drab. I've got a spool of black 550 cord for my tie outs.

    I'm thinking of painting my next project Jeep, Cattail Brown. It's become one of my favorite colors as of late.
    And JRB sent me the Green one with my 3 season setup...I like it too..
