Heavy, but it comes with everything you needReviewed by hillslug98239 from Pasco WA on Monday, August 13, 2018I'm a recent convert to sleeping in a hammock on hiking trips. (My body can't handle sleeping on the ground anymore.) While this rain fly is on the heavy side, it's grand. It comes with ample hardware to stake it down. It appears to be well-made.
I haven't used it every time I've camped, as I only use it if my campsite is close to a trail and I feel I need it for privacy. So far, I haven't had the opportunity to try it out in rain or strong winds. The reviews from another major retailer indicate it does well in those conditions.
Good rain flyReviewed by Jack from FL on Tuesday, February 20, 2018Its a big heavy so if you care a lot about each gram in your pack, this isnt for you. Its a big rain fly. Paired with the Skeeter Beeter Pro, its a great setup. Tons of room under this thing with tons of tieoff points.
Since its silcon coated, it wont last forever. So picking up a spare may not be a bad idea
Not a tarpReviewed by Mark from Boulder on Monday, February 19, 2018This is not a 10 foot square. It is a 7.5' square it elongated corners which means you can't even stake the edges down to the ground. It's a hammock cover and I imagine a very good one if that's what you need.
Quality and versatile rain flyVerified Buyer Reviewed by Maka in Kona from Kailua-Kona, HI on Monday, July 31, 2017Found this online and was pleased with the versatility and quality of this product. It comes with stakes and adjustable tie lines allowing you to adjust it to your needs such as a rain fly, a un screen, a footprint, and an "A" frame tent to protect your gear. I went back to order a second one but it now is only available in STP stores.

“How much does the rain fly weigh by itself? Grams or ounces is fine. ”
According to information listed under the product Specs- Packed weight: 1 lb. 10 oz.
By itself! Packed weight is total weight with included accessories.
Anout 20oz. Its heavy for a tarp but its inexpensive. It blocks out the sun. I suggest not using the grommets because they do what all grommets eventually do, tear out. I tie to the loops themselves. Its a pretty durable tarp. Its huge too ao if youre big like me... it'll cover any hammock.
My entire hammock system is about 3.5lbs. Sleeping bag is 1.5lbs. Entire packweight without food, fuel, or water is around 12lbs.
If its not going to rain that weekend, leave the tarp at home. I sometimes get a packweight of under 8lbs by just not bringing stuff. Like plan a weekend trip where youre meals dont require a stove. Its hot ao dont brinf a sleeping bag. Its not raining so dont bring a tarp... or you can just not count grams and be that guy that cuts his travel toothbrush in half to save 1.1 grams
“1) the picture shows 4 guyouts per side which would total to 12 guyouts. The description says 15 guyouts.
What is the location of the remaining 3 guyouts?
2) one of the reviews mentions it comes with stakes and lines, how many stakes and how much line?
And does the product weight include the stakes and the line?
