New tarp showed up today. I set it up to get the ridgeline put on, plus all the guy lines & some shock cord. Total weight for all of it is 12.45 oz. It is 12 feet long at the ridgeline, and it's 8.5 feet wide.

One door closed, one door partially opened to allow entry and block some wind:

Opposite view of same setup:


Both doors closed on this end:


Side pull out extended (with doors tied back - I redid the door shock cords on this pic):

Interior view showing pull outs pulled on right, and not pulled on left:


Porch mode:


All closed up in the tarp skins:

Wow! That this almost disappears in those leaves haha. That's b.a! I've always like the kelty shelters but I can't argue. That's shelter is one of the top on the market! The material looks very thin almost see through. Is it see through a bit or is that the color of the material?

It is a little see through, which is the main reason I went with the camouflage. With the solid colors, it's much easier to see through it (especially the original white color). It is a thin material, and kind of crinkly at the moment, since it's new. The crinkly will gradually diminish as it's used, though it will never be as quiet as nylon, or silnylon.

I'm very pleased with it overall. The quality is really nice.

It's waterproof material that is used as sails for ships. The "normal" color is white, but it also comes as an olive drab, and camo (obviously). It's called cuben fiber.

Here's a pic of a whoopie sling with the parts labeled.




where did you get these? and how does it work wrapped around a tree?

I ordered mine from Dutch - dutchwaregear.com. Supposedly it's really easy to make them yourself, but I figured I'd support one of the vendors on hammock forums, plus they aren't that expensive.

You still have to have a tree saver or strap to go around the tree. Most people use a marlin spike hitch knot with a toggle in place (the whoopie sling hangs on the knot, NOT the toggle, as the toggle will break). You can also use a carabiner in the whoopie and clip it to the marlin spike hitch (you'll have to look up how to tie it, as I can't describe it. (I'll try to find a link and post it up.) I do either of them, and have purchased some ENO Atlas straps for this very purpose. I have to admit it's a little tedious at first, but once it clicks, it's easy.

Here you go, marlin spike hitch:

The knot isn't as hard as the animation makes it look. The video might be better, but I didn't watch it.

Cool. Make sure to put a bead, or something similar, on the adjustable loop to prevent you from accidentally pulling the loop through the "bury".
