    This is my 2nd one, put 5800 miles of hiking and kayaking trips on the first one.

    These tarps are great no question..

    My only bone is that I tried to have this same tarp made without the doors but HG never replied with a quote so I couldn't do that..

    These are over priced but this is the only place to get them... But for the money I've spent on cuben tarps I could have got cuben tents other places.. that's a bit frustrating.

    I bought the Dyneema Palace Tarp. I recently used it over my hammock on two cool (43-degree low with high humidity) nights and one warm (51-degree low) night of pouring rain. The tarp performed flawlessly. I had NO issues with condensation, despite both doors being tightly closed. The wind did not penetrate or even creep through between the doors, which were staked crossed over each other. I also plan to carry the tarp while backpacking, to provide a quick emergency shelter for our group of hikers in case of pop-up thunderstorms. This purchase was well worth the money!

    DCF Palace Tarp

    Posted by Bob Moulder on 20th Jan 2019

    Excellent piece of gear, especially when Mother Nature decides to 'jump ugly' on ya! Pitching low and battening down the doors provides great coverage for you and gear when wind combines with snow or rain, when lesser shelters would leave you sorely wanting. And even with guylines, stakes and stuff sack, still less than a pound!

    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.
