    Tarp options

    Hey all,

    I'm going on a trip this next weekend. Currently I have a Noah 9 tarp, and wish to downsize/lighten the load a bit. I understand most of the home business tarp manufacturers have backlogs of 1-3 weeks and was wondering what tarp, around 6x10 is closest to $70, and 9 oz that I can have by the middle of next week?

    Thanks!

    I have the Hennessy Hammock Hex Rainfly 70D Polyester. It's not 9oz, maybe more like 23oz. Hennessy sells it for $59.99.

    Thank you for the recommendations!

    i had been looking at some of the hennessey's as options, I'm just a little worried on the dimensions being only max of 8ft or so long.

    Does anyone know what the turnaround time is on Etowah tarps? Are they ready to order or made to order?

    i don't know what those guys charge for shipping, but that looks pretty nice and only slightly above your $70 range and .7 oz over your 9 oz limit.

    maybe worth an email

    I completely forgot about the Wilderness Logics tarp. How is there turnaround time? I sent them an email, just wondering if anyone happens to know from a past purchase?

    ALl Hennessey tarps have a ridgeline of 11 feet or more, where do you get the 8 ft from?

    I just ordered the Hennessy Hex from imaginegear.com. $59 + $1.50 for USPS priority shipping.

    Ordered yesterday, shipped yesterday, should have it tomorrow.
