    The tabs only come into play when using as a tarp with an external ridgeline or for extra ridgeline support, which is not a config I'd use anyway. I tried the following ridgeline tie-out option when testing - you can see how the middle tabs in the ridgeline are pulled out - this is what causes stretching of the thread holes on the tabs:




    A more common tarp config that works great for my regular hammocks:



    Pulling the extra fabric around you for extra warmth:



    A standard UQ fits well, no need for clips. I just hang a biner on the suspension line and attach the UQ to the biner. No need for tabs to attach the UQ. Unless I'm misunderstanding you.

    I'm not surprised there was something already out there... Good looking piece of equipment too, I might add.

    It really caught my eye as I could something like this right about now. My wife and I are studying abroad and we didn't bring any of our gear with us. I've made an alcohol stove (looking for a can to make a wood-burning stove too) and have some cans to use as pots, but nothing to sleep on/under. A tarp, at least, but I do miss my hammock...
