    is that the one your talking about... i don't think it can be closed because of where the tie outs are placed... it looks big enough although a bit odd with the asymmetrical hex design... although it would give you an AWESOME porch mode if you used the long side... i'm hoping this is just to be used car camping as there are better(cheaper) options big enough to cover your hammock... but no it won't have doors unless you get some of the dutch tarp pull options and use them to give you another tie out and even then i don't think there is enough fabric to get the doors closed...

    the tadpole if you are looking for just a small fair weather turned not so nice weather tarp... and the superfly for doors and the whole shebang in one shot...

    i just ordered my superfly, but if you look around here on the forum it seems to be the most popular tarp with doors...

    If you can wait til you can save teh money for a superfly...definitely go with that BUT

    Kelty makes a tarp called the Noah- get the 12 ft that you can rig it to utilize doors...sort of.

    here is a vid on that set up

    Does anyone know how well the Kelty holds up to a moderate rain? Does it need to have water repellent added with seam sealer right out of the box? I'm just another noob with a noob question. Thanks in advance.
