what tarp are you using with your Claytor
I have read several comments about the Claytors being longer than other hammocks, and this causes less than ideal coverage for a normal tarp.
What tarp are you using for the Claytor specifically?
What are the pros and cons of each?
I would like to get something large that provides full coverage for strong storms and also extra "dry" room underneath.
I realize there is a tarp section but I could not find very much Claytor specific info there

I use the Claytor Diamond tarp, have been through some awful storms and have stayed dry. It is simple and works. Check out Gargoyle's Ogee tarp as it would have a little more versatility.

I use an 8" by 10" hung on the diagonal with my Claytor no net, if it rains/blows hard I snug it down close to me.

It has always been my private conviction that any man who pits his intelligence against a fish and loses has it coming.
