    Now I am thinking adding a hood to the Asym.

    The Go light is a little smaller and the Sea to Summit bearly covered the HH - in fact I have a small gap at the sides.

    There was an Old Man with a owl,
    Who continued to bother and howl;
    He sat on a rail, And imbibed bitter ale,
    Which refreshed that Old Man and his owl
    .WOO

    That is the way I am leaning. Have an Asym in progress and wanted to see how the hood on a poncho is attached so I can make the adjustment to mine, if I go that route. Have you tried pitching your poncho tarp as a diamond? Then you would only need two stakes and should simplify things.

    Wow thank you I had to flip it a couple of times and take out all the guy knots but its more roomy, less work, and less claustrophobic.

    This killed 10 ounces of total pack weight.

    Interesting. I've got the Sea to Summit and the GoLite arrived this week. Never thought of using them over my hammock.

    My Plan.

    Just got the Dream hammock DangerBird and have a Sea to Summit Tarp Poncho. The weight is DangerBird: 900G/31.70oz--Tarp Poncho:353G/12.45oz. It is a dual purpose set up as the DangerBird has a built in cover. During this summer's outings no tarp should be needed but I have tie-outs with pursic's on the poncho. Under 3lbs for bed and rain protection.

    I've been eyeballing that Golite poncho tarp ever since they got them back in stock. This thread is not helping my future with the wife
