    Beatle, it really depends on what season your going to use your set-up. If your looking for now, then a larger winter tarp that you can close the ends. If your looking to mainly use it in warmer weather then a smaller tarp will work.

    I have a Kelty Noah 9 that I use during the summer. That is being replaced now with a Tad Pole that I got for X-mas. WOW that thing packs down small, about half the size of my DIY hammock.

    For winter I have used the Noahs 9, but you can't really close the ends in tight. I now use one of the Guide Gear 12x12 tarps. I have seen them for sale every once in a while in the sale forum. I have not seen them at sportsman guide or bargain outfitters since last year.

    There are a lot of great tarps out there, and what ever you get, you will still end up buying or making more. Just like a Pringles chips, you can't have just 1.

    I'm currently looking for a good all around tarp, I'm just getting into the hammock gig. I'm really looking at the MacCat deluxe someone mentioned, also the MamaJamba. They both look like great tarps, but being new, I don't have any dealings with either.

    Oh well, I know I'll be good with either judging from the overall reviews on both throughout the forums. Now I just have to decide.

    I just saw that I missed out on a MacCat with the 2QZQ mod in the For Sale section. Good grief, people are quick to bite on this forum. I think I'll have to live on this site to catch a tarp for sale.

    one thing I feel about the MacCat delux and Mambajamba is that they're great tarps, but you can get away with a bit less for a 3 season tarp and still have plenty of space and they still don't have the desired door for winter. So in my mind its too much for 3 season (because you can get by with less weight) and not enough for winter (in some rough conditions).

    But that's just the gram weenie in me they'll both be nice with tons of cooking space.

    I'm looking at these sizes because I live in Oklahoma where the weather can go from 75F and clear to 45F and torrential rains in about an hours time. I would like to go smaller, but I'm trying to cover as many weather situations as I can for my first tarp.
    I am beginning to lean more towards the Mamajamba just to stay with one company, it includes pullouts, and is a little cheaper. I do kinda prefer the grey color of the MacCat though. I'm letting my eyes do the shopping instead of the logic.

    I think a 10' ridgeline is plenty for a WBBB. I have had mine in some heavy long sustaining rain with my Granite Gear 10' x 10', without a drop of moisture. Doors would make it even better.

    this is the tarp i have and i can tell you that you won't be disappointed with it, plus brandon stands behind his stuff 100% (as do all the vendors on here) and is great to work with if you have any questions or concerns

    Well, I guess it may be unnecessary but to close of this thread, I decided to order the Mamajamba. I had just ordered my Hammock three days ago and with the promotion Brandon has, I was able to order it for $100 even. I'm hoping that I stay with this hammock gig and can eventually go a little smaller and lighter, but I have a tendency to go big into something and then lose interest. With the Mamajamba I have the option of getting the door kit and making it more of a winter only tarp if I get another smaller "summer tarp"

    Thanks for all the recommendations and assistance guys. This site is awesome.
    (I even had Exup PM me and tell me about on tarps for sale in the forum without me asking him to. Big thumbs up to him! )

    I have the Big Mamajamba and like it so much sometimes I just pitch it for the heck of it!
    I think you're going to be satisfied with it.
