The Edge is our smallest, lightest tarp, it’s a great warm-weather/light 3-season tarp in the mountains, a solid 3-season tarp at lower elevations/warmer climates, and when paired with the Door-Kit it becomes a solid 3-season tarp or can even be used for winters in a milder climate. Weight-conscious hangers who hang year-round will often have the Edge for warm weather and the Superfly for cold weather. It’s not recommended for the Ridgerunner (unless also using the Spindrift or Undercover-Poncho) but is appropriate for the Blackbird, Blackbird XLC and Traveler hammocks. It’s wide enough to provide some wind protection and a little extra protected area outside the hammock. For instance if you want to sit on the ground next to the hammock and cook while still being covered you can.
Includes: 2 ridgeline tieouts, 4 main ground corner tieouts, stuffsac, and is Door-Kit compatible. (note: “tieouts” refers to the guyline attachment points, not the guyline itself which is not included. Tent stakes, guyline, and Dutchware tarp hardware sold separately in our accessories section.)
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.
