    Looking for an all-purpose tarp (winter, too)

    I've been looking at the JRB 11x10 at about 130ish in price, but are there any other all-purpose tarps worth looking into at ABOUT the same price? I don't need a super shelter like the one Arrowhead provides at 250...

    I just wanna make sure I can fully enclose my ENO SN hammock so that I can block as much wind as possible and retain radiant heat.

    Thanks!

    Take a look at the Warbonnet Superfly! I love my Superfly and it has served me well through out the seasons in all sorts of weather.

    Does it already come fully enclosable or do I have to purchase the doors, too?

    On all the newer ones they have the doors attached. It is only on the old old old ones that do not have the doors.

    I'll throw in another vote for the Superfly. For all-purpose, it's an amazingly versatile tarp. And that's before the amazing craftsmanship you'll find in all Warbonnet stuff.

    If you're not a gram weenie, the Superfly can't be beat, IMO, but that's coming from a noob with little experience. Look around, though, and I'm sure you'll find most people that have or had one will agree.
