    I was testing it to see how it hung. Will hang the hammock and sleep under it tomorrow night; It's supposed to rain, which will be my ultimate test.

    No it doesn't. This tarp started out with the intentions of being around a 9+ oz tarp. That is the actual weight of the 1.1 sil-nylon. I didn't take into account the weight of the reinforcements, tie-outs, holding hardware, zing-it lines, carabiners, seam sealer, snakeskin, holding bag, etc ... I thought those items weightwise would be negligable, however those "extras" added an additional 7 ozs to the overall weight, bringing the total weight up to 15 ozs. My WB Superfly tarp comes in under two pounds, so If I continue to continue to add extra weight by adding my doors, I'll be defeating my initial purpose, I'd just as soon use the superfly. I still have more material and may try some detachable velcro doors, it shouldn't be too much of an issue in terms of construction, additional weight is my main consideration; so I'll see how that goes... The tarp as it stands now has ample space so I don't think getting wet from the rain is any longer an issue, it only won't be very protective from strong wind gust. I'm sure it will still make a very nice three season tarp, while my superfly can become my cold weathered tarp.
