    Kelty Noah's Tarp 12

    I love my Kelty Noah's Tarp 12. It has been a life saver on more than a few occasions. Not the smallest or the lightest but the best yet.........does anyone remember the EMS Hyperwing.

    Just picked one up, and it should be here thurs!

    My first tarp... Probably Overkill, especially since the weather is generally pretty **** nice here... But if I only have one I figured the weight and bulk would be worth always having at least enough.

    Got it from here http://www.mountainsports.com/msmain...+Noahs+Tarp+12
    killer deal, free shipping, and they even emailed me on Sunday because there was a billing issue... As long as they don't send me a 30 gallon trash bag spray painted Kelty they seem to be one hell of a seller for the budget minded.

    Thanks for the reviews on this. I'm considering picking up either one of these or an ENO tarp to go with my ENO DoubleNest.

    I was looking more at the 9' model though. A 9' tarp should be around 12.8' on the diagonal, and that's likely to be all the room I have between two trees. A 12' tarp would be closer to 17' on the diagonal. I guess if the trees are too close together I could pitch it square like the OP did.

    Kelty Noah's Tarp 12

    I hang my Noah's Tarp 12 A-frame style with a 12' spread. The diagonal is a long one indeed, but when you hang it in a A-frame configuration it provides a lot of room to spread out and cover your gear and footprint.
    Conversely it provides a great option to cover a common area while being set up on the diagonal when conditions dictate. Lots of sun/rain protection.
    I have a HH Expedition Asym and hang with the base Asym tarp. I love the view with the smaller rainfly. The Kelty goes along as a matter of course. I use it when I need to, and get someone else to carry it when I can. Versatility is the key and it covers more than the HH Hex rainfly.
    I can set it up in about a minute or two when the weather turns bad.

    I thought long and hard about wether to get the 9 or 12. In the end, I came to the conclusion that a diagonal tarp wouldnt provide the coverage im looking for, and 9 feet is much to short a ridgeline for a rectangle. Also, being from Minnesota, I wanted something that would work as a strong winter shelter.

    I came to the same conclusion, went for the 12. I figured if it's the only tarp I have, I want it to work in all conditions, and having the option to close the ends off for a changing room or having more shelter for sitting under sounded good to me.

    I just bought a 12' x 12' too. REI had them on sale for less than the 9' x 9'. My wife is letting me make her a hammock after she tried mine for the first time the other day, so I figured the 12 would be great for both of us.

    I also bought 35' of Glowire (1/8" Dyneema blend) from DIY Gear Supply to use as a ridgeline. I'll play around with it when I get it to see how I can secure the ridgeline to the tarp and make it more-or-less wind resistant. From what it looks like, I might need to add some more guy-lines.

    With a square setup, how many lines are needed to keep it stable? I'm not planning to use it in heavy wind, but I want it to be stable in lighter to moderate winds.

    Any other tips for getting it set up?

    I have the Kelty Noah 9 and the 12. I use the 12 to cover two hammocks and it does a great job. The Noah 9 was on sale and I got it for friends to use with one of my other hammocks. I have used the 9 and like it, but it does not rig up rectangular only diagonal. It is still a great tarp and has plenty of coverage. Definitely worth the small price I paid for it.
    Happy Hangin!!!

    I love our Noah's Tarp. We use it above picnic tables, over a hammock or standalone as a shade and shelter when kayak camping
