Some of you may not know that as well as kayaking I am heavily into hammocking. So much so that I have been making tarps, hammocks, underquilts and top quilts for around four years!
– The original super-taut catenary-cut hexagonal tarps for hammocks and tarp camping
– Made out of super light, waterproof tested 1.4 oz Silnylon
– Hexagonal shaped to provide efficient coverage of any commercial or home-made hammock
– Catenary-cut sides eliminate tarp sagging and wind flapping
– Provides cooking, changing, and gear storage space in even wind driven rain
– Triple stitched webbing reinforced perimeter with ABS plastic D-rings and nylon pull tabs at all tieouts – 9 years and never a reported failure
– All tarps come with a matching silnylon stuff sack
– Current colors include Stealth-Gray and Forest Brown
The MacCat deluxe has been faultless over the years and has proved to be a great investment. I have added dyneema cord for the guylines (shocking pink) and have used the setup in some pretty wild conditions over the years.
All the outer seams are bound and the main ridge line seam was seam-sealed before it was sent to me. I have never had to re-apply any treatment over the years that I have owned the tarp. Having made my own kit for a number of years I get really picky about the quality of stitching. I measure my stitching against that of Outdoor Equipment Supplier. If I can get my stitching as good as theres I know that I have done a great job.
In the images above (taken in France) I am using an ENO bug net and Ticket To The Moon Double Hammock (same as the ENO Deluxe but way cheaper).
