I am in seach of a rain fly for my hammock. I use the grand trunk skeeterbeeter pro, the dimensions are 10.5 by 5 feet. I currently use 2 footprints for tents but its not the best system in the world, and a normal tarp is to loud and bulky. Is there any ideas besides the 70-130$ emo ones?

If you or someone you know can sew, go buy a large peice of coated ripstop from the fabric store.  A simple A-frame with loops to attach lines to.

If I can make a suggestion to Gummy - go to this web-site:   http://www.seattlefabrics.com/

You can buy everything you will need to either, make yourself or have them make for you, the rain tarp.  Great place.

Good luck,
