    Superfly coverage

    Will a Superfly cover an 11 ft hammock?

    Sure will. Does a great job at it, especially with the doors. If the wind starts blowing rain at all, just close the doors shut.

    Remember; an 11 foot hammock isn't actually 11 foot long at the ridgeline. Due to the sag its generally a good bit less.

    Correct. Usually 110" or 9.1 feet. of hammock ridgeline. The Superfly is 11' long, so that leaves just under a foot of coverage on each end.

    Just to clarify, and I'm sure you know this breyman, that 110" number comes from 83% of 11 foot. 83% of the hammock length is a rule of thumb used to approximate the best amount of sag in a hammock. I adjust from there, but it seems like a good starting point to me.

    Mine was ordered awhile back.. But arrived today.. Well worth the wait.. It's a really nice Tarp. I am going to enjoy this thing..

    just looking at the side tie outs.. Might just add a light 5 foot dowel or lightweight stick to pull tarp outwards.

    ah now just need the time to go play in the forest.

    I can let you know this weekend, as mine arrived today. Well it was shipped to work, and I didn't work today, preparing for the snow storm we are supposed to be getting, so I'll get it tomarrow.

    Crowell, I ordered a camo one on Dec 22 and it just now arrived. Hopefully Brandon is getting caught up with all of the holiday orders, and you'll get your shortly....RR
