    Dana Designs Hattarp

    Cat tarp...kinda heavy, but it has zippers all around. The seller says you can zip it together like a bivy sack...I'd be worried about condensation, but it made the think that zippers might be a good way to add the end caps.

    interesting thought... being able to remove the beaks instead of having them rolled up & showing when they aren't being used.
    but you're right, the zipper would ad some weight & opportunity for failure.
    i have thought about beaks on the end that you could attach & remove by either tying or using mini biners.
    it would need to attach underneath the ridge line a few inches from the end, & to the corners of the tarp... then to the tree or hammock support.

    i sure do wish we could come up w/ another name for those extensions... something about that name ... beak, that i just don't like

    I'm with you on that one, slowhike!
    I haven't made mine yet, but I am already calling them "gables", even if it's not technically correct. Somehow, that sounds friendlier to me!

    I think Ray Garlington originally called them Tarp Hoods. I'm not sure that really says it either.

    How about vestibule? Eureka Timberline tents have an attachable vestibule that is very similar.
    Peace,
