Re: [BackpackGearTest] Is the Tarp Big Enough ?
- To; Bill Murdoch,
See my comments at <http://www.egroups.com/files/BackpackGearTest/Hennessy+Hammock/NON-TESTER+COMMENTS/Hennessy+Hammock+User+Comments%23+200012210223Z.htm> I understand the newer rain flies are larger.. E-mail me back channel & I will give you more information. <vossj@...>

in it on the AT in Tennessee, but it did not rain.
I wonder if the trap is big enough to protect the hammock in a blowing
rainstorm. (1) The hammock hangs below the tarp and sideways rain might wet
the hammock. (2) The tarp is cut straight on the two sides that are parallel
to the warp, but has a 3 1/2" hollow on the two sides that are cut on the
bias. It looks a little skimpy over my shoulder on the side with the hollow
cut; maybe skimpy to get my shoulder wet. (3) There does not seem to be any
sort of drip stopper on the support ropes. Will water run down the ropes and
wet the hammock ends ?
Looking through the tester files, I did not see anyone who had tried the
hammock in cold and wet conditions. Does anyone have any experience ?
