    New tarp

    I was thinking about buying a madcat tarp but I am not sure what size to get. I have a ENO doublenest hammock. If I could get some ideas that would be great!

    I have MacCat Ultra with seam sealed option and my hammock are big ole brazilian one and Ultra covers just hammocks length but for camping hammocks I think it will provide plenty of coverage and ultralighters may prefer smaller Deluxe or Standard from MacCat series. For me stuffed in stuff sack Ultra are small enough. I'm at 181cm and 84kg.

    I'm fanatic about my Wilderness Logics Tadpole, 10.5 foot of weather protection. Covers my ENO Doublenest easily. I did get different fabric and mail it to Marty, who whipped up a masterpiece of tarp magic. Mine has reflective material on one side to keep the sun from baking me underneath.

    For the ENO Doublenest, the Deluxe would cover it very nicely, even in a heavy downpour. If you wanted to survive monsoon conditions, I would recommend the Ultra, but who wants to be out in a monsoon?

    The deluxe is a great size for both my ENO double and the WB BB. I use it in a downpour just two days ago and scoffed at the weather. This tarp is new for me and I am quite impressed.
    If I lose 12 more ounces in this pack and gear I can bring one more beer.

    I'm a little late but I think you'll be quite pleased with the Deluxe. I love mine with my Hennessy and Light Hiker. A little small for my BMBH UL, though.

    the ultra is a good tarp but if you want something with some serious weather protection you should look into the 4 season models.
