    I like how easy it looks to set them up.

    I managed to put together a decent tarp out of some heavier silnylon, but I could see myself messing the whole thing up by sewing on some tie outs. Not only does this offer me the tie outs that I would like, but I can also remove and reposition them as needed.

    Sweet!!!

    I invented the tarp pull out

    ...not really, but as far as I know, I was the first HF person to use them over a hammock & I quietly promoted their use since the beginning of HF.

    Actually, the reason I was using them was because I had ordered a "Ray Way" tarp Tent just before discovering the hammock for backpacking.

    It came with instructions to sew in tarp pull outs (thanks Ray). With the help of a seamstress friend I put together the "Tent Tarp" but had not yet added the netting.

    When I discovered the hammock I just used the new tarp I had & found that the pull outs were a great addition.
    They add roominess & keep the tarp off you when the wind blows

    Sorry for the shameless plug

    Anyone tried using Dutch Tarp Pullouts to convert a hammock into a "chair"?

    saw a thread (somewhere on HF) where taking one long edge of a hammock up over it's ridgeline; then fastening the fabric edge around the ridgeline - about 18" from each end, ... seems this forces the hammock to provide a more upright place to lean your back on while sitting.

    Just wondered if these pullouts may work for this?

    The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy,
    while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn."
