    SuperFly-like Tarps for ~$100

    So, I'm on a budget, and want a tarp with doors. Any suggestions?
    Thanks,

    Only one I can think of would be the Kelty Noahs 12 but it is much heavier than the Superfly and you can't get a very taut pitch.

    Check out Charlie ' s work at Mountain Wilderness Gear. He comes in right at $100 for a larger than superfly (12' ridgeline as opposed to the SF's 11') Monsterfly tarp. I believe he only has a Facebook page for his business right now so you'd have to look him up.
    I have one of his silpoly monster Flys and it's quality gear. Worth talking with him and perhaps he could do something customized to your needs.
    Can't get much cheaper than him for the product.
    There are a few threads about his tarps on the forum. Sorry phone browsing so a little hard to provide links right now.
    He might be able to reach your approx. 100 price point.

    I contacted him last week and he responded within the hour.

    I have a monster and it's well worth what I paid for it. Doors and enough room to run a few laps if you like

    I can only speak for my experience with Mountain Wilderness Gear, but I am over 10 weeks out, multiple missed ship date promises and still no tarp or expectation of getting one. I would certainly recommend you look elsewhere.

    Stop getting your Starbucks coffee for a little while and save up the extra money for the Superfly or any of the other vendors on the site that make large tarps with built in doors.

    Cheers

    The Aqua Quest Guide Sil Tarp XL is another option. It was selling for $90 on Amazon but it looks like it's only available from other vendors and is $100 right now. The reviews look pretty good. I've been thinking about getting one for a second tarp.
