Are the big enough to cover a 110" ridgeline?

They aren't very big. They're about a foot of ridgeline on each side smaller than a Noah's tarp 9. I have longer hammocks, and I don't trust the Yukons in anything but dry weather.

The WOOT Hammock Mosquito XL is 9'-10" (118") long, and they work well for those. If you look at the videos I did on the WOOT Hammocks, then at the one I did for the tarp, you can get an idea.

Just checking the diagonal on this website, it has a 15'.1 ridgeline. ( 11' 10" X 9' 4")If it doesn't stretch, it might work for a cover over an 11' hammock set on the diagonal.

I might get one at that price. Just sayin'

Its not an actual rectangle, though. If you go to about 7:55 on this video, you can get an idea of the length. The posts on my patio are 15'-0 apart----one of the reasons we got the house, BTW.

Heads up about the Woot sale on LMF Army 2.0 ferro rods - they are shipping 1.0's instead.

Be advised that though these are listed as the Army 2.0 model, I received an email from Woot this afternoon informing me that what was actually shipped is the 1.0 version. The ferrocerium rod is the same in both models. However, the scraper that comes with the 2.0 is vastly different. The handle and scraper on the 1.0 are the same as on the Coghlans and I can pick that up for $3. The 2.0 scraper is enough better to be worth it to me.

The 2.0 scraper allows me to use what I call the "Turn Key" method of ferro scraping. The Turn Key method is when we hold the scraper flat against the ferro with our off hand thumb, about an inch back from the tip of the ferro, then generate the sparks with a rapid twist of our wrist. The same motion as quickly turning a key in a lock. While this scraping method only works well with the better tinders (because it throws many sparks and few molten globs) it avoids scattering the tinder pile. Kids and beginners find it easier and more fun than traditional methods of scraping a ferro.

Anyhow, I just left a request for a full refund with Woot.

LMF 1.0

Email from Woot Customer Service:

"We saw that you recently ordered a Light My Fire FireStarter from us and we think that’s awesome!

There’s just one problem: we accidentally listed the FireStarter on our site as the 2.0 model when we actually only have the 1.0 model. These FireStarters are the same, except that they don’t have a rubber grip on the scraper and they don’t come with a built-in whistle.

We feel super bad about our mistake, so to make it right, we’re going to knock $5 off of the price of the FireStarter. The money will be refunded directly to your original payment method."


By the way, the handle on both the ferro and the scraper on the Army 2.0 model is a well designed hard plastic with an ergonomic thumb scallop. Not rubber.


Edited to add: Shop with confidence. Woot issued a full refund.

I have two of these tarps. Good for loaners and when the family comes out with me, and one of them was my first tarp. Didn't like the grommets they use on the ridgeline so I modded it quick. Takes about 10-15 min. Disregard the shock cord, that's for another idea.

Running the grosgrain like that is similar to an equalizing anchor used in rock climbing.

Yeah, I picked mine up while the getting was good this time. Almost went for the Kelty, but they didn't have the 12 foot one, and 15 was just ginormous.
