I recently recieved this hammock https://www.trailspace.com/gear/hammock-bliss/no-see-um-no-more-hammock-bliss/
as a gift and want to try it out this spring and summer, I will be bringing along a tarp as well for protection from the weather.
I know there is a huge thread on tarps vs. tents but was unable to find any metion of a hammock tarp combonation in that thread. I know that a few of you regulars use hammocks on occasion, I was just looking for comparisons to a tent.
In bad weather I will still use my tent but, this seems a lighter option for good weather hikes with the occasional unforseen rain mixed in, that could be blocked via a tarp.
Not trying to open a whole new tarp vs tent thread just want personal experience and preference.
