    Kelty Trail Dome 6 Footprint

    http://www.kelty.com/p-140-trail-dome-6-footprint.aspx

    These things are being discontinued, so instead of $45, Kelty is selling them for $20. I didn't get one, but they were recommended to me as a cost-effective tarp.

    Just thought I'd share.

    I haven't the foggiest idea. I've HEARD that it's 10x10 or somewhere thereabouts, but I didn't really dig that hard.

    Just dug up specs, its 9x9. Would this make a good tarp? Its water resistant but not water repellant and made from 1800mm PU Nylon Taffeta, it weighs 23 oz with stuff sack.

    I've been using one for a little while. It's got 4 nice loops on each corner, each with a mitten clip attached as well, and I haven't had any problem's with it leaking in even moderate rain (haven't had it up during any heavy storms, but I doubt it'd have trouble. I have noticed it's a little tricky to string up tightly, I don't know if that's because mine's not perfectly flat or because the diamond configuration just tends to be less tight. In any case, I definitely recommend it. I'm in the process of sewing on some more tabs but I've found it too small to use as an a-frame with my hammock.
    Also, I think there's a 20% off coupon for the kelty site out there somewhere.

    I purchased 4 of these for use with the kids at the begining of summer. Here is a pic of one folded back behind a 90 x 132 tablecloth hammock. The hammock has a structural ridge line of 110 inches for comparison. I have used these in several thunderstorms with good performance.
