    Curious what would be the advantage of that style? The dyneema is so light you could have much more protection for an unbelievable lightweight tarp.
    Some days I can't tell whether I found a rope or lost a horse...

    Smaller to pack, ease of set up, requires only 2 stakes, more middle coverage than the dyneema rectangles out there, in inclement weather I always carry an UQ protector regardless, I would expect somewhat less expensive since I would guess less material to fabricate.

    Are you looking just for a dyneema diamond tarp? Or do you want all those extra tie outs?

    Then try just searching for dyneema flat tarp, you can find 10x10s or different sizes. Most hammock makers don't do that because coverage isn't as good so most of their diamond tarps are asymmetrical.

    Email Dutchware. I'm not them, but I bet they'll make you a custom tarp to your specs...

    Is a diamond shaped tarp, a rectangular or square shaped tarp, pitched with opposite corners attached to two trees?
    Or is a diamond shaped tarp actually a distinct shape, other than square or rectangle?

    A diamond shaped tarp pitch is beautiful, but maybe not best at keeping hammock dry during rain, especially during wind driven rain.

    But the larger “kelty” dimensions, pitched diamond style, would give more rain protection than smaller diamond setups.

    To be dry during rain storms, my tarp is Dutch’s bonded winter tarp with doors and two internal pole mods, 12x11&half Many of us don’t choose to camp during rain storms. I have opted, to not camp during three days of forecasted rain, but if it rains a bit, then we are really camping!

    Ask Hickery about his Kelty tarp. I believe it’s 16x16
    That tarp can be pitched diamond style or many other configurations, of your choice, either hunkered down during storms or flying high in sunshine!

    I think diamond is a basic square tarp, like the Kelty Noah. I think even a 12x12 would offer as much protection in various configurations as most hex tarps, but that's an awfully long RL pitched diamond style, and a whole lot of dyneema! ($$)

    And a larger Kelty sized dyneema tarp would take lots of space in pack. Dyneema is more bulky—doesn’t pack down-compress as much as silpoly tarps of same dimensions.
    I had a dyneema tarp and went to silpoly, and then to Dutch’s bonded seam winter tarp—I think fabric is called xenon—it packs down and takes very little space in my pack.
    Not sure if xenon and silpoly are somewhat the same.
    Dutch’s bonded winter tarp 12x11half with internal pole mods make a very large dry footprint during rain.
    But diamond pitched tarps are beautiful and use only two side guylines.
