Designed for the full range of pitch options this 11′ x 10′ tarp is primarily a flat tarp. Its 11 foot length is long enough for the longest of currently available camping hammocks. The 10 foot width allows for “A” frame pitches with generous five foot sides. Perhaps more importantly, it can be pitched to form a full side wind block ala a Baker hut for hammocks tied to trees a normal 5 to 6 feet above the ground and still provide great top coverage.
Alternatively, this tarp may be hung on it’s 10 foot length and pitched in a “tent” like mode to provide excellent weather protection and privacy. This technique works well with regular size hammocks such as the Claytor Mosquito and Expedition, the Eagles Nest Singles and Doubles, the Travel Hammock, the Treklight Hammock, and all of the Hennessy models except the Safari.
The 11 foot sides have dual catenary cut edges. The removal of the approximately four inch catenary cuts results in a tarp that pitches taut with little to no effort. Use of a rolled hem technique eliminates the several ounces of edging weight associated with more common gross grain ribbon edged catenary tarps. Combined with the strong JRB corners the resultant tarp is strong yet lighter than similar sized tarps. The JRB 11′ x 10′ Tarp is made out of 1.1 oz. silicon impregnated ripstop nylon cordura ® now with 21 tie-out tabs (9 along each of the 10′ edges, 3 on each of the 11′ edges one on the center of the ridge line). This provides for a 50% increase in “porch” coverage when in the Baker style lean-to pitch. Including silnyl stuff sack it weighs 19 oz. and packs to approximately 10” x 5” x 2″.
NOTE: Ridgeline seam comes sealed with McNett SilNet Silicon Seam Sealer.
WARNING: Silicon impregnated nylon is flammable, please use caution near open flame.
CAUTION: Nylon will age and breakdown prematurely if exposed to continuous sunlight (ultra-violet light). Do not leave nylon products set up in direct sunlight for extended periods of time.
