    Anyone use this tarp?

    I saw this tarp online. Has anyone used it before for a hammock? I want it to use for a loaner hammock i let friends use.

    They are kind of thin, it just dulls the sunlight instead of blocking it.

    7 x 9 feet and 1 lb 5 oz seems a bit out of line for it's size. As a loaner I would question using such a small tarp for an inexperienced user. But of course if you are only doing fair weather hanging the question is somewhat moot.
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.

    For a diamond camo tarp, I think I would rather spend an extra few dollars and get the Claytor Diamond Fly. It's bigger, and no grommets.

    Thanks for you input. I agree -- its probably too heavy/too small for what I want.
