CHILL GORILLA 10′ SWALLOWTAIL RAIN FLY TENT TARP Waterproof Camping Shelter. Lightweight RIPSTOP NYLON & Not Cheap Polyester. Stakes Included. Survival Gear. Backpacking Hammock & ENO Accessory. BLUE

Short Review (Summary): Another GREAT Chill Gorilla Product here!!  They have made some GREAT improvements over some of their other tarps and have managed to keep the price down!!  This tarp includes everything you need to get out and about!  Who hates buying new gear only to find out that you have to buy something else to make it work?  I know I DO!!!!  Not with Chill Gorilla!  It includes everything you need to get out and into your hammock!

Pros
1.) Waterproof – Why make a tarp that’s not waterproof?  Exactly BUT some companies make some that aren’t or maybe they just make some that suck.. Not Chill Gorilla, theirs rocks and is fully 100% waterproof!

2.) Curved Edges –  During my test I did find that the curved edges helped keep me cool! Although, it has been cold around here, today we did have a 70 degree sunny day!! The curved edges allowed the breeze to blow keeping me cool while the sun was beating down on top!

3.) Reinforced Corners – These things blow away the competition!!!  Very strong, no worries about them failing!! Can you believe I had a name brand tarp fail! Shame on you ENO (Eagles Nest Outfitters) your tarp cost over $100 and failed due to weak corners!!

4.) Plenty of tie down points!!

5.) Weighs under 1.5 pounds! Pretty good right?  Great for backpacking!

6.) Packs small!! Smaller than my HydroFlask! (See photos below)

7.) Will work with ANY HAMMOCK.  ENO, Grand Trunk, Yukon, Bear Butt, other brands?  No worries!  This will work with ANY HAMMOCK!!

Overall:  Great tarp and like all Chill Gorilla Products, I highly recommend this!! I only recommend camping gear I use myself and this is that gear!  You never want gear to fail on you while out and about.. I trust Chill Gorilla 100% of the time and know it wont leave me stranded!

Short Rewiew: Awesome Hammock Stand! Very easy to put together, although it is a little heavy it is still easy to carry!! I purchased a large 50X30 canvas bag from Stansport (Found here on Amazon) and it allows for easy transport of this stand!! Great for a patio, car camping (I call dump camping) or even a day at the park or beach! With a good canvas bag, this is super easy to travel around with you! I tried a few hammock stands and ended up sending most back because they didn’t work well with my ENO style camping hammocks.. This one works GREAT with those and I have tested it with several brands of hammocks (ENO, Grand Trunk, Bear Butt, Kammok, and others). I highly recommend this stand!

Pros
1.) Stylish
2.) Easy to Assemble – No tools required and can be put together in about 2 – 3 minutes. Everything snaps together and comes apart with a push of a button!
3.) Compact – Most hammock stands that I found on Amazon broke down to 5 or 6 ft sections.. This one is 4 ft sections making it easier to carry in small cars!! It is heavy but does pack down fairly small!
4.) Fits in the back seat of a car packed or even a trunk.. Great for traveling or dump camping
5.) VERY Durable! (THIS IS WHY IT IS SO HEAVY)
6.) Includes everything needed! (EXCEPT for a hammock)
7.) Works with all the camping hammocks I have tested with so far (Grand Trunk, Bear Butt, ENO, Kammok)
8.) Can easily attach underquilts, rainflys, tarps, or whatever else you need to make your night comfortable!

Cons
1.) Doesn’t include any carry bag YET they advertise that it is portable (As seen above though, the Stansport Delux Canvas Bag 50X30 fits fine). You can carry it around in it’s box, but the box might not last very long
2.) IT IS HEAVY (About 50 – 60 pounds packed depending on the weight of your canvas bag).. But this is very durable. I have no issues with it being so heavy BUT this might be a deal breaker for some

Overall: I really enjoy this hammock stand and would recommend it to anyone

Tips:
1.) Large military style canvas bags work great at storing this. I purchased a 50X30 bag from Stansport here on Amazon.. The bag was under $25 when I purchased it and works GREAT to carry the stand around!
