    I use a diamond claytor (not UL by any means) and I am fine with it. I really like the simplicity of just the ridgeline and 2 tie outs. Works well with my BB.
    Revolution is about the need to re-evolve political, economic and social justice and power back into the hands of the people, preferably through legislation and policies that make human sense. That's what revolution is about. Revolution is not about shootouts.

    WB has a diamond as well - that's what I would go with. I have a Maccat Std and I consider it very fairweather for the BB. You'd have to pull that micro down on you to get really adequate coverage. Something I personally don't like to do.

    Has anyone tried one of the Hennessy asym tarps like the "Backpacker / Deep Jungle Rainfly 30D Silnylon" with a WBBB ?

    They JUST discontinued that diamond tarp. It doesn't really provide adequate coverage on the shelf side. Personally, I would go with a WB edge (they just dropped the price) or a WL Tadpole, but ymmv
    I solemnly swear that I am up to no good...

    I just purchased a "Tad pole" from Wilderness Logics I used it last weekend on the Pine Mountain trail in GA. I used it with my WBBB 1.7SL It rained very hard on the over nighter. The next morning I inspected my rig and everything was dry.. This is my new goto tarp for sure....

    Asym diamonds such as the original Hennessy types are good. Light for hiking. There is not a lot of room under them, but they will keep you dry while you sleep if pitched (orientation) and close to the hammock ridgeline. Forum Guru PapaSmurf has a tutorial:

    I use this... Works well. Good coverage and good views. In a big storm, I'd go with my kelty 12

    Just picked up an edge tarp. It seems to be a great size vs weight option.
