    I gave it a shot with some panty hose. I don't think it's a long term solution. I put a hole at each foot end and put my suspension through. I had to stretch them a lot (and I bought the biggest size) to get full coverage on my Wilderness Logics Tad Pole (their smallest tarp). Then once you get them fully covered, it's a challenge to keep them there. Had to use some nite-ize reusable twist ties. The panty hose already have runs where I put the holes. I don't think this is a long term solution.

    That ultimately could work, but more than I really wanted to mess with. The nice thing about snake skins made by hennesy or made from noseeum is that they just slide and you don't have to worry about them shooting back. I think the stretchiness of the pantyhose works against them in this situation. Some people may like it, but they're not for me.

    I actually ordered a custom made set from Kat at mountaingoatgear for my warbonnet superfly. Haven't got them yet, but I hear she does great work.

    What if you took a third leg, cut the toe open, and use it to cover the gap in the center left by the two you are currently using?

    Again, not ideal or long term but might work.

    Camruns, did you use the stockings from the toe all the way up to the waist line, including the panty? That's what I did, and I have no trouble covering my 12-foot ridgeline. I'm not surprised pantihose are not strong enough to last more than a couple of uses. But my nylon tights are holding up very well so far. I'm sure you'll love your mountaingoat gear

    Alas, no, L.D. I'd love to go and meet you and other fellow hangers, but family obligations prohibit an overnight trip these days. Sounds like a bunch of fun though!

    Where do you get them three legged pantyhose?

    +1 on Kat's. Order the little pockets for the ends to stow your ridge line. Works good on my SF.
