Ticket to the Moon – Hammock Tarp

Ticket to the Moon – Hammock Tarp

Kindly supplied for review by Man O Leisure (www.manoleisure.com)

Material PU treated rip stop nylon
Weight 700gm
Size 350cm x 350 cm diagonal.
Waterproof 2000mm

The tarp comes in the same sort of “banana” shape bag as the hammock and bug net. However unlike the other two products, which are “stuffed” into the bag, the tarp has to be folded and slid into the bag.

It is a very well made tarp and would be ok for lightweight overnight camps in reasonable weather.

I didn’t try it in pouring rain but I have my doubts whether it would be sufficiently sturdy for some of our British Summer winds and rain. The bag includes a couple of lightweight pegs to hold the fitted side guy-lines. The other two lines obviously tie to the uprights holding the hammock. The pegs are small (6 inches) and I am sure they would struggle to hold the tarp in a typical British woodland setting. Easily sorted by using wood stakes or larger pegs. The guys fold away into neat corner pockets on the tarp and have plastic clips for quick release. The clips are neat but small and would struggle to hold in a strong wind. There are additional guy holes in the edge of the tarp. It was quick and easy to set up.

Overall a neat well made and light tarp for overnight camping.
