    Love my new Tadpole

    Just wanted to say thanks to Marty and the guys for doing such a great job. Got my new tadpole on Friday and I've already got to test it out in a really good rain storm. It kept me (and my dog) nice and dry! My other hammocks are Hennessy Expeditions with the stock fly, so in comparison it's like I'm in a house. Love it.

    Talking Tadpole : )

    Congrats on getting the Tadpole.... I have been in plenty of storms with it and never getting damp. The coverage is great at such a light weight tarp.

    Are you going to replace the HH tarp with the tadpole? I am thinking aboutdoing something similar. I want a tarp with 2 tieouts on the side like this so I can tie it out to trees and have a "porch".

    Nice! I just ordered one in forest green.

    I will still use my HH tarp on my expedition, but the tadpole is for the LiteOwl. This thing is awesome. Great coverage and packs down pretty small. I've had the opportunity to spend the night through a couple of storms already and it has done a great job. Even the dog stays dry (he's happy about that)

    Hey Caveman, could you give me the measurement between the two side tie out points? I'm looking at one of these for a project I have in mind.

    Great tarp. I used mine for about 20 nights and noticed some water drops on the ridge seam. I could not tell where they came from, I use a CRL above the tarp, would have been difficult to drip down the prussics, across the sbiner and then down the ridge seam, so I went ahead and sealed it. I have not been in any significant rain since to test. I know it seems to be hit or miss on Tadpole owners whether they sealed or not. It was probably something I did wrong.

    Enjoy it!

    i have a TadPole and OldmanWinter, both unsealed, that i have used a bunch in the rain with no ridge leaks. i use a CRL with the tarp over the CRL. i attach the tarps ridge loops to the CRL using soft shackles (zing-it) that i prussic wrap around the zing-it CRL.
    i don't think a WL ridge seam leak is impossible but it maybe improbable.
    a little sealer wont hurt though.
