    Worth it, no regrets

    Posted by Barbara on 8th Sep 2018

    I have been eyeing one of these tarps for a long time. I had been saving and got a bit impatient and almost went with the standard with doors version. I had a few back and forth emails with Harry about what I needed and wanted in my tarp, full coverage and providing some privacy. His advice was from the perspective of having a happy customer, not just to make a sale, which was greatly appreciated. I decided to be patient and save some more.

    I have now had my winter palace in camo out on a few hangs and am so glad I waited. First and foremost, it is a well constructed high quality tarp. It is great to use in porch mode on a hot summer night yet still button it down during a windy thunderstorm. The camo pattern affords privacy but still allows light through. If a little more privacy is important to you, I highly recommend going with the camo option. I chose to rig my own lines so no review on that option. I did however decide to go with the door tie backs. They are simple and effective.

    The Superfly was my tarp of choice before this purchase (don't get me wrong, that is still a great tarp). The Winter Palace is very close in size and functions similarly. I was happy to see an additional tie down point midway along the bottom of each side. Rarely needed, but when conditions were really bad in the past, I had wished that had been an option with my old tarp. I already had a gear sleeve from HG, it is a great way to make set up and take down fast and easy with this tarp. Overall, I am very happy with my purchase and it was well worth the wait while I saved up for it.

    Amazing Tarp

    Posted by Stuart Finkelson on 1st Jun 2018

    I asked for a custom order 12X12 Camo Palace tarp with the doors and I was amazed by what a great product it is. In my search for a good dyneema tarp, it is difficult to find one with doors and is larger. This large tarp is super strong, super light and is easy to set-up to handle the elements including strong wind and rain conditions. Hammock Gear as well is amazing with their customer service, so while the dyneema tarp is a little bit more expensive I have been very happy with the purchase.

    Spacious and light weight

    Posted by Ken Finzer on 7th May 2018

    I used my Winter Palace this past weekend and it stormed heavily. The cuben fiber held up nicely. This is a great addition to my gear. I won't be going back to silnylon. When you touch the tarp, no water weeps through, and it dried out very quickly.

    Well Worth The Money

    Posted by "Woodsmen 348" on 5th Apr 2018

    Let me start by saying I own other Cuben Fiber Products so I am familiar with this material. I have always slept on the ground in the past and while getting older, I found it harder getting in and out of my tent. I did my research and went to the trees in a Hammock. Like so many others have said..."I will never go back to the Ground" Well this is true for me also as long as the Terrain I am hiking in will allow me to use my Hammock Set Up. With that being said.....I chose Hammock Gears Dyneema Fiber Palace Tarp. This thing is GREAT! I custom built my own Ridge and Guy Lines to fit my needs. Last week I went out on a Gear Test with my new set up, knowing the forecast was HEAVEY Rain and Wind for the trip. I set my Palace up in porch mode and this thing Held up Perfectly! It was raining so hard at one point I lowered it down and closed the doors for a Perfectly Dry and Wind free night! As you all know keeping dry is a must on rainy cold nights. People complain about the price.....It all goes back to the old saying...."You get what you pay for" and this thing is worth every penny to me. Hammock Gears Craftsman Ship is second to none! A big thank you to Harry for being so helpful in all my questions I had before I made my investment. Yes Investment, I expect to have this along time, as long as my body don't break first.
    THANK YOU HAMMOCK GEAR!

    Happy Upgrade

    Posted by GTC on 6th Dec 2017

    Only had it out twice but both were in the rain and I stayed perfectly dry. Go for the 12ft if you're using an 11ft hammock. I also suggest rigging the side panel pulls in such a way that the walls are pulled "up" rather than "out". I use my trekking poles across the ridge and it works great. One thing that the pictures don't show is that this tarp does have cat cuts. The ridge cut is minor but the edge cuts are substantial and overall reduce the coverage some. As always with HG, craftsmanship is fantastic and if I ever have issues, I expect the customer support to be great too.

    Must Have - Storm Protection

    Posted by Slooter on 28th Nov 2017

    Must have for full coverage - super lightweight - tough and plenty of guy-out points. Very needed upgrade for my load out for wet weather conditions and driving winds/rain while hanging in the mock...

    best tarp I have ever owned

    Posted by Tommy B on 8th Aug 2017

    Came as promised. I ordered the palace with door tie backs. I was disappointed with the tie backs. They were glued on wrong, and I had to cut them and reinstall them. That should not occur on such an expensive, guality piece.
