- Only in-stock models of hammock tarps with doors are available for purchase currently. We add more hammock inventory in weekly. If you make a complete selection of an out-of-stock item, checking all boxes including color, suspension etc, you should see a blue box down below the add-to-cart button that allows you to enter an email address for an email notification when that color/model is added back to inventory. If every color within a variation are out of stock, then the box may not appear unfortunately and you’d have to just check back, but using the email notice is the best option if you are able. We recommend signing up for a couple different color choices to ensure faster notification.
The Superfly pairs well any of our hammock models. Hammock tarps with doors are great for cold weather use or folks who want one tarp for all conditions and seasons. The SF is our largest tarp. It would be considered a winter hammock tarp or an All-Season tarp. As far as size and coverage goes, it’s equivalent to the MJ plus removable door kit. The only difference is that the doors of the SF are not removable, rather they’re built-in to the shape of the tarp. (the more frequently you use hammock tarps with doors the more you’ll appreciate the convenience of having them permanently attached, the removable door kits available on the other models are better for occasional door usage) The doors of the Superfly can be folded underneath when not needed, this creates a shape almost identical to that of the MJ (an elongated Hex shape…plus doors). The versatility, expansive coverage and convenient built-in doors make the Superfly a great tarp for any of our hammock models. This is our most popular winter hammock tarp.
We offer all our tarp models in 11′, 12′ and 13′ lengths. This length refers to the length of the Ridge-seam. In general, the 11′ tarps are most appropriate for end gathered style hammocks like our Blackbird, XLC and Eldorado, while the 13′ versions are best suited for bridge hammocks like our Ridgerunner. The doors on any of our 13′ “Fly” series of hammock tarps with doors will fully close around the suspension triangle of the Ridgerunner.
We also offer a 12′ option which would be most useful on a Hex shaped tarp like our Mamajamba, with the 12′ MJ giving more end coverage than the 11′ MJ.
Unlike the MJ hex tarp, hammock tarps with doors do NOT see an increase in end coverage by jumping from 11’ to 12’ version.
We are currently offering hammock tarps with doors 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 even when they are used as winter hammock tarp, weights are similar for each. Both fabrics have a minimum 2000mm hydrostatic head waterproof rating.
Be sure to check out the extra options and modifications available in our Custom Tarp Builder section.

So on an 11′ end-gathered style hammock, an 11′ hammock tarp with doors will give more coverage down low than 13′ would. But on our Ridgerunner bridge hammock, there is no ridgeline and the hammock is usually hung a little flatter…so you can get a 13′ winter hammock tarp to come down for sufficient side coverage. The 13′ also allows the doors to fully shut on the Ridgerunner, the shorter 11′ tarp is also appropriate for a Ridgerunner but the apex of the RR’s suspension triangle will poke out between the doors, creating a small opening. Bumping to a 13′ eliminates that issue, but is not necessary… the opening is a narrow vertical slot that is about 3 feet beyond the ends of the hammock fabric. There is a photo of the RR suspension triangle poking through the door slot in the gallery on the Thunderfly page for reference.
The MiniFly and ThunderFly are both good lightweight 3-season tarp options. You also can add our Underquilt Protector to the bottom of your XLC/Eldorado and turn either of these tarps into a solid winter hammock tarp. On their own, both provide good 3 season coverage. For someone looking to go minimal I would recommend the Thunderfly for a true 3 season tarp in the Rockies or Sierra/Cascades where you might actually encounter snow, freezing temps, and high wind in spring and fall, while the Minifly would be more than adequate as a 3-season hammock tarp with doors in anyplace you don’t expect lots of cold wind. The ThunderFly is simply 12″ wider so offers more wind block (which is more important the colder it is)
The Superfly is our best selling model because it is our “all season/all weather” winter hammock tarp model. The main reason someone might select a different model tarp would be if they want to save pack weight in the warmer months when the Superfly coverage is overkill for the conditions and weight savings is more desirable. Other than a little extra weight, there is no real downside to using the Superfly in warmer conditions. For information on choosing the right tarp for you, see our Tarps 101 page.
The 30D Silnylon is slightly more durable than 20D Silpoly.
In general nylon has a higher tear and tensile(breaking) strength than the same weight polyester simply because nylon is all-around stronger pound for pound than polyester is. A winter hammock tarp made of poly will stretch less (when soaked or otherwise) and it will absorb less water weight. Poly still stretches some, just not as much as nylon. The extra stretch of nylon adds to its strength though, in that it acts as a built-in shock absorber during a heavy wind gust, so with poly stretching less in that situation, in theory the nylon winter hammock tarp would have a lower wind load due to extra stretch.
We’ve had excellent long term durability results from our 30d Silnylon.
Ploy is said to have better UV resistance, but don’t think you can treat your winter hammock tarp any differently than before, we tested a polyester hammock tarp with doors outside for about 2 months and the fabric lost ALOT of strength from the sun exposure, so you still want to avoid things like that regardless of whether your tarp is poly or nylon.
Our 11 foot hammocks have a ridgeline length of 112″ (the body fabric hangs in an arc) so with an 11′ (132″) tarp this gives you 10″ of tarp overlap at each end of the hammock. If the tarp has doors then those doors will be able to shut or overlap enclosing you all the way around. How far down does the tarp come? This depends on tarp width but also how high you hang it up above the hammock, hang it higher and it doesn’t come down as far. Your hammock suspension runs uphill at an angle and the tarp is longer than the hammock, so you can only pitch the winter hammock tarp so low that it contacts the hammock suspension. So the longer the tarp length the higher you have to pitch it above the ridgeline of the hammock and the more coverage you lose down low. Generally go for the 11′ Fly series tarp with any of our 10′ or 11′ end gathered models like the Blackbird, XLC and Eldorado. This will give max wind block down low near the bottom of the hammock.
All of our tarp models come with a single-ended stuff sack included. Recommended items are listed on each tarp page.

Amazing tarp! The coverage is amazing. I love being able to close the ends up.
I camp all year round in central Oregon, the wind can howl! When I set the superfly up I set it up low enough (if I know the wind is going to be kicking up) to where the edges are pretty close to the ground. I can be inside my blackbird xlc with the superfly closed and don’t feel any wind. It was gusting 20+ mph a few weeks back when I was camping and I could hear it… but I sure couldn’t feel it! Used it during a big rainstorm on the metolius river last year too and not a drop came through!
Warbonnet… great products!

Makes my eno house fly feel like a brick! My new superfly came in and I can’t be more satisfied. After $100 Dutch ware purchase it did end up a bit more pricy but the fact that you can personalize your setup was a huge selling point for me. When looking at weight and coverage for a good all season tarp I highly recommend the warbonnet superfly!

I’ve had this almost 2 years now, and this tarp is my most prized piece of gear. 4 season use,and super light, so very minimal weight penalty. Some people like smaller tarps but the room ,privacy and multiple ways to set this up, make it my castle ! LOVE IT

I’ve owned this tarp for close to six months now so I figured this is a great time to write a review on it. ABSOLUTELY pleased with this tarp! Beyond pleased. So far I have used it in almost every weather condition except snow. In a light rain, it protects you . I have had it in several heavy rains. The only water that came in were a few drips comiong from the seams on the panel pulls. That was entirely my fault because I didn’t seal the seams yet. Heavy thunderstorm with driving rain? no problem, I haven’t seen any water come in where it isn’t wanted. I have had it in some pretty high winds so far and it stands up to it brilliantly. Nothing like laying in your hammock in a heavy wind and literally feeling nothing. If you set this tarp up completely, with ends closed and panel pulls set up, it is literally a fortress. As I said earlier, I haven’t used this in snow yet. But I know my gear. I really think the way this tarp is set up with the panel pulls and everything else it would definitely keep snow out, but also should shed the snow from the outside easily. I also purchased the poles for the panel pulls. These things are great! not only do they work good for that purpose, but I also use them as “tent poles”, so to speak, to hold up one side of the tarp in porch mode. Works GREAT. The only thing I would change is the way it comes stock to mount the panel pulls to the poles. Pretty awkward and kinda weird. But I rigged up my own way of connecting them and that works great. That is literally the ONLY complaint I have with this tarp. I got mine in Bushwhack Camo, which is absolutely beautiful. It looks so good in the woods, and from a distance and if you’re not looking for it, good luck seeing it, lol. So far I am beyond happy with this tarp. Been camping for a very very long time and had tons of gear of all kinds, and I swear this is one of the best pieces of gear I ever purchased. Good job Warbonnet!

I dithered and debated about buying this tarp for months. I have a serviceable tarp, but it lacks panel pulls and doors and is relatively heavy. I’m completely happy with the decision to buy the Superfly. Not only is it lighter, the doors and panel pulls worked exactly as expected. On try first trip with it, the first night brought a cold wind-driven mist. Despite the air being saturated with cold water, I was warm and dry under the tarp. Two days later, it was thunderstorms with cloud bursts. The tarp help up perfectly and the panel pulls kept the wind from pushing the tarp in against the windward side of the hammock. With the snake skins, it is easy to deploy and a put back into its stuff sack.

Warbonnet makes one of the most quality products in the industry it took me 2 years to commit to buying a setup but incredibly glad I did!

Firstly, this tarp does what it’s supposed to do really well. It protects you. From wind, from rain, from cold. No problem. It can handle the worst of weather conditions. Better conditions but still need the shelter? Ties the door back, set it up in porch mode, and enjoy the view. Want to go to ground? Set it up with your poles and you have a lightweight shelter. I wrap the tarp, use mesh snakeskins, and I can still fit it in the stuff sac, but it’s a fairly tight fit. I love the versatility of this tarp.
Hi! Thank You for that..fresh… As a Mojoheadz label:)

Have had a poly superfly (with a blackbird hammock) for a few years now and I must say this thing is awesome. Last trip in the Adirondacks it was put through a storm with VERY strong winds coming across a lake (not the best spot). The wind kept me up most the night just waiting and watching for my tarp to be destroyed and sent into the trees, but it took it like a champ with zero damage. And with it down low and doors closed off, stayed completely dry. I love the versatility of this tarp compared to my other brand, which no longer get used. Highly recommend the superfly and warbonnet! Can’t wait to get out on more adventures!

I have had a chance to use the Superfly numerous times over the last few years and feel i can now write an honest review.
This tarp has seen several downpours, the worst of which was last summer while i was camping with my daughter. The trails to out campsite were washed out in multiple places and when we got to our site trail head, it was completely washed out and impassible. We tried to go to the next site farther up and it too was flooded out. Tired, with soaking wet feet and too late to hike back to the car, we decided to set up our hammocks on the side of the hill. I set up our two XLCs together with a spreader bar and the Superfly over top. It was wide enough to accomodate both, but it was a tight fit. We sat underneath and cooked some dinner before heading to bed. The rain was so heavy and loud, it was impossible to sleep and i was concerned that the trail would be completely washed out. It rained for a solid 11 or 12 hours non-stop and not a single drop got through the Superfly.
My last trip, the other week, had me sleeping in a thunder and lightning storm that lasted a good 6 hours and again, myself and my gear underneath the tarp stayed completely dry.
It dries off REALLY fast and any pine needles that fell on it, easily fall away.
My only ‘complaint’ is that the snake skins are rather tight to back the tarp into, especially when wet. I think im going to buy another double ended stuff stack, which is bigge, to make take-down a lot quicker.
This is an amazing tarp and well worth the cost.

I can attest that I am completely satisfied with the performance of this tarp,, I can’t ask for better. The only complaint I have is the size of the stuff sack, it’s just annoying small. It makes packing it away harder than it should be.
