Super lightweight. No stretch. Packs small. Expensive. This is an incredible product for hammocks. It weighs just over 8 ounces without tie outs and included stuff sack. I use the sack as a waterproof bag for some down items. The product is well made, for easy deployment its packed in no-see-um skins and kept in an exterior mesh pocket on the pack. I haven't had any abrasion issues or wear. You can buy a silnylon big tarp with doors for $150, but it's going to be heavy. This is the opposite of… Full review
Quality construction and great custom built quilt. Research told me this was the best bang for the buck and I am very glad I bought from Hammockgear.

Sure, you could use a typical fiberglass tarp from… Full review
A lightweight, hex-shaped, “cat” cut tarp, for hammocks, constructed of cuben fiber. Increase coverage while decreasing weight, but at what cost?

Such designs minimize weight, but provide minimal overhead coverage For that reason, they require careful site selection to minimize wind, and blowing rain. It’s constructed of 30 Denier sillnylon ripstop, and weighs 9.4 ozs. After buying the hammock… Full review
A lightweight, low volume alternative to a sleeping bag for spring thru fall. Lots of options to tailor it to your needs, with personalized service by hikers running a cottage industry. What’s a “Backpacking Quilt?” - It's a purpose-built quilt one takes backpacking in lieu of a sleeping bag. Standard sleeping bag design puts down on the bottom where one’s weight compresses it, all but eliminating its insulation property. Side sleepers can find themselves waking up to a facefull of nylon… Full review
