DD Tarp for a WBRR
I am looking at get a WBRR as my first hammock but for the tarp I was think about getting the DD 3m x3m for coverage. Would it be a good fit for the WWRR being a bridge type. Does any one have any experience with the DD tarp, is the workmanship good on them and will they withstand some good storms! What I have seen is that they really well built but I would like someone who has used one to help me out with some info!

I imagine it would do okay, although I can't provide any direct experience with that tarp, unfortunately.
If you're already buying a RidgeRunner, though, I would strongly recommend the Cloudburst tarp, also by Warbonnet. It provides lots of coverage, has pull-outs right at where the spreader bars on the RR sit and has Warbonnet's great quality.
The key is those pull-outs, spaced perfectly. Bridge hammocks benefit from that extra room underneath (so the bars don't rub the tarp) and the Cloudburst works just right.
