How To Choose A Hammock Tarp?
When choosing a tarp there are many factors including weight, material, size/coverage, versatility, durability & tie outs. Let’s go over each.

2. Material. There are only two logical choices. Ripstop Nylon or spending more for ultralight materials like our Fortress. Ripstop nylon is lightweight, more durable, tear & puncture resistant weather resistant and stronger. We rain flys have a 2000 PU waterproof rating which is double the waterproof standard.
Fun Fact: Ripstop Nylon is the primary material used in hot air balloons where your life depends on it.
