    Warbonnet Edge Tarp

    I just ordered the Edge Tarp from Warbonnet. I am interested to know if anyone has used this tarp yet, and what is your opinion about it (especially regarding rain protection).

    I can't say much for the edge, but I have the mamajamba and it just is long enough. I think the 'edge' is a good name, because it probably just gets you by on the edges. Beware of blowing sideways Forest Gump rain.

    I used one this past summer on a week long hike in VA. I found it to have decent coverage with the exception of one night where we had a heavy thunderstorm (3+ inches of rain). Pay attention to your coverage and it will do fine. I will take my grizz beaks along the next time, however. That would make it foolproof, but would negate some of the weight savings.

    Love my "Edge" tarp, however I haven't been in a serious downpour with it yet. It's all in how you pitch it. Take the time to set it up as often as possible and get used to it.

    I've used mine in wind driven rain and it did fine. Make sure you pay attention to wind direction and you'll be good.

    I had it out in one heavy downpour. I had warning that it was coming, (lightning woke me up) so I paid more attention than usual to centreing the tarp over my WBBB, and to pitching it low and tight. Not a drop of rain on the hammock! I love the Edge. Just big enough, and not an inch (or gram) too big.

    I don't have one, but my hiking buddy does and my go to tarp has been my maccat standard which is 125" x "84 and the edge is 126" x 94", and are both very similar. The biggest difference minus the 10" in width and 2" in length the edge has on the standard is that the edges cat cuts are much more shallow, leaving more coverage and just slightly less room for wind blown rain to get through.

    The standard has been great to me, even in a couple knarly storms so I know the edge would be great. I think it would be the perfect 3 season tarp. The only reason I chose the standard was because I had option in color and I really wanted a single pannel pull on each side, which I couldn't get the done custom on the esge from warbonnet. But I've own the superfly and can attest to the wonderful quality of warbonnet. Plus you can always buy the door kit and I think it could be darn near a winter tarp.

    +1 for me.

    I use this tarp as part of my lightweight summer setup. Mine weights in at only about 10oz including the tieouts and bag. It has more than adequate coverage and looks great.

    It's all in knowing your tarp and your conditions. I've seen people get wet with huge tarps and at the same time seen people using tarps half their size and stay dry. Practice pitching it in various ways, you'll find what works for you.

    My home-made tarp the BlackCrow is roughly the same size as an Edge.....I love it and have sat out many a storm in it.
