    I'm on their mailing list Hammock Life. At the end of every year they have a big sale where they sell off anything they used for display, or any returns that they repaired. Pretty sweet deals. I ended up getting a typhoon, undercover, and a scout hammock all at drastically reduced prices. Then got a free cub hammock just in the new year with another order.

    Gee, since people seem to have a new liking for the tarp, I think I will dig mine out of "I will never use this storage" and list it for sale.

    Both of the Typhoon and Monsoon are Camo, a heavy material, I really dislike them. I only set them up once stood inside and thought, I do not like this, at all too heavy too dark.

    Plus now, I have learned how to keep the rain out even in a major storm on the North Oregon Coast. It took me a while to figure out how to keep dry, other members told me there was a way. I finally figured it out.

    Anyway, I do not like them, they just are not for me. Kind of buy it, try it, decide, I decided nope. I never thought anyone else would want one, there you go, that is why there are so many different types of equipment out there. I guess I feel like my tent would do the same thing as the PHOON's, if I just hung the tent off the ground. My tent would be lighter weight and less dark inside.

    I will take it out of its resting place list it and be rid of it. Thank you for letting me know that there is an interest in them.

    How much for the Monsoon?

    If the price is right, I might have an interest in both/either.

    thanks to the HH odds and ends sale back in October, I was able to get my first hammock and now I'm hooked (only 1 time hanging until this weekend).

    I want to get another hammock so I can pass my first one on to my son. Have to wait for the fall and save money.

    They also have a monthly drawing for a dream hammock setup. You have to be on the email list. Chances are probably better than the lottery but I'm not banking on winning that and getting my dream setup (Explorer Deluxe Ultralight with a big tarp and all the cold weather trimmings)

    Well, both the Typhoon and Monsoon are available in the light 30D silnylon (lightweight and somewhat see-through) and the heaver (and presumably darker) 70D poly, so if light transmission is a concern the silnylon version might be a better bet.

    At any rate, I'll keep my Typhoon as part of my tarp collection. It'll serve a purpose (total coverage from wind/rain) that my lightweight asym and cat tarps don't. It might be overkill, but with the recent popularity of the doored "winter" tarps it'll be worth using if the conditions demand it.
