    Haven XL tarp

    I'm thinking of giving one of these hammocks a go. Wondering if its worth getting the tarp? Thinking my Thunderfly is going to be better in every way, so why buy their's? What do I know??

    Thoughts?

    Someone in a Facebook group brought up he liked it because you don't have to stake it out. I feel like I would be claustrophobic like that, I like the open air, but each to their own.

    I agree with SoaknWet. I didn't buy the tarp and glad I didn't. Since I have a gathered end hammock as well as the Haven, I use the same tarp for both. The Haven tarp may be ok in certain circumstances but my 12 ft tarp I always use gives me everything I need for either tarp.

    Thanks. Sounds like my suspicions are correct!

    I for sure bring a bigger tarp. More headroom and working/lollygag room.
    You can see it use here and there in the video below.
