    Tarp for Dangerbird

    I'm seriously considering a dangerbird. I was looking at WBBB but I love the feature of the dangerbird winter cover so...

    Any suggestions on the best tarp to go with it. I was looking along the lines of a superfly when I was leaning blackbird but what's people's opinions for the DB?

    I use UGQ winter dream 12 and a WL big daddy with my DB. Plenty of room on the sides and more than enough overhang on the ends. Hoping to test a Superfly soon to see if it works as well.
    Leave me alone, I'm only talking to my dog today.

    I may be outnumbered, but never outmanned.

    I have a Zpacks Cuben with doors which i absolutely love. I went with Zpacks for the 11 foot ridgeline.

    Before the Cuben, i used a OES MacCat Deluxe which was a little snug in the ridgeline.

    I use the WB Mambajamba with mine. I also have the door kit but I stopped bringing it with me on my hikes. The built in over cover of my DB60 takes care of any wind issues when it is cold. I have not had any problems with coverage when it rains or snows.

    If the DB is a 10' hammock I think any hammock specific trap will give you good coverage.
    Size and features vs weight is usually the big decision.

    My preferred tarp is a sylnylon 12'x8' with 1 set of doors in a dark color for better shade.

    I should mention, my Dangerbird is custom.

    Excellent point... I didn't think of that.

    I have a WL Big Daddy (11' ridge) and an AHE Toxaway (12' ridge) with pull-outs, both are great on my 11' hammock.

    I went with the inexpensive Kelty Noah 12' until I decide which professional tarp to get. I like the light color. I've not been in a deluge with it,but it withstands the garden hose. Oh, I have the DB72. I motorcycle tour, so weight isn't my issue.
