We’re happy to introduce the MountainFly as one of our newest tarp designs. Being a slightly larger version of the popular Thunderfly, this tarp is built for those that want the simplicity and convenience of a standard hex tarp but with extra end-coverage when the weather gets nasty.
We’ve taken the standard hex tarp and given it major end-coverage that can be deployed as needed by adding a split-beak (small doors) to the ends that can be clipped together and deployed with a single guyline to add a significant amount of end protection right where you need it (higher up near the ends of the hammock where a standard hex shape offers the least coverage). When the weather is nice these small doors simply stay clipped back and out of the way until you need to deploy them. Once deployed, they protect the hammock from windblown rain coming in from the ends of the tarp.
Looking for something slightly lighter/smaller? Check out our MiniFly or ThunderFly tarp models for a downsized version of the MountainFly
We are currently offering tarps in both Polyester and Nylon options (camo print available in Polyester ONLY). The Polyester fabric is more stretch resistant and has lower water absorption, while the Nylon is a stronger more durable fabric. Both are good options, weights are similar for each. Both fabrics have a minimum 2000mm hydrostatic head waterproof rating
