    Campmor tarps

    Has anyone tried a Campmor ultralite tarp? I haven't heard back about getting a MacCat and would like to find something that will work with a Hennessy Explorer. I'm not sure how well the Hennessy rain fly will work.

    Not sure if I should get the 8x10 or 10x12. Maybe I'll go the Neo's way and get the cheap camo tarp!

    You can make a BlackCat cheaper than the $80 you'd spend on that Equinox, and get a lot nicer coverage out of it.

    I have a 9x9 sportsman Guide Camo tarp. It weighs 1 1/2 lbs with lines.
    It's plenty big.
    Neo made me do it!!!

    For what (if anything ) it's worth, I own an Equinox tarp and really like it.

    However, I've never used it w/a hammock. I have one worry w/it's durability though: grommets. I haven't had one tear out but I worry about the stress causing it. I'm gonna add some patches around the grommets w/ grosgrain, I think to alleviate this worry.

    Not trying to hijack the thread, just commenting on my use and concerns!

    I haven't used mine with a hammock either but it has gone on plenty of trips with me. So far no problems with the wind ripping it.
    I am taking it on my section hike next week.

    Is it plenty water and wind proof? It looks like the rainfly that came with my Clarks except for bigger and cheaper.

    Got a pic handy of that neo tarp in action over le'hammock?

    Check neo's gallery. Every pic of his hammock has the tarp over it.

    I have the 9x9 version and it has served me well.
