I did receive my replacement. It worked well during several days in the field. I appreciate the quick response. I am looking forward to the under and top quilt campaign!

@Joe Sorry to hear about the problem with your tarp. This is an unusual problem and we will take care of it right away. As you know from our updates, there is a 2 year warranty on all of our gear and we will always go the extra to ensure that every backer and customer is 100% satisfied. I will send you a replacement tarp immediately and ship it for free. I will send you a direct message with your tracking # today.
Thanks for your support!

Although I was initially impressed with the quality after a few uses the stitching is already coming apart. I am in the Army and have been using the tarp in the field were others have commented on the tarp. I am supposed to be out this weekend and during my pretraining inspection, I find that one of the ridgeline loops is almost completely unraveled. I will attempt to restitch it myself. I was very excited about the upcoming quilt campaign, but I am not so sure now.

Review from Kickstarter
This was my first KS backing and I am very pleased to announce that I have received my Tarp and door kit today. I was very keen to have this tarp since I have never tried tarp or hammock camping before. Now with the apex, I will definitely give it a try, plus I don't need to drag around 10 pounds of weight from my tent. Thank you guys for delivering on your promise and getting the product out in time and with such quality. I would not hesitate to recommend my friends to get one of these once they see me string it up. PS. could you please make a video or perhaps send some instruction on the additional door kit attachment? it would really be helpful. Cheers

Received my 2 tarps yesterday. Attached the RL. Looks great and will be testing them this weekend. 60% chance of rain. One quick question. Are they seam sealed?

I recently received my tarp. Spent some time playing with it this weekend. Worked great! Looking forward to using it on many outings this fall.

Review from Kickstarter
Thanks, got my package today and impressed with the quality of the tarps. Haven't had time to check out the hammock, but I'm sure it will exceed my expectations, just like the tarps. Good luck in the future!

Review from Kickstarter
Just received my last tarp. This makes three hammocks and three tarps.
I love them all. Very very well made. I hope to use them forever. At 67 forever has some limitation but I am sure these will be in great shape to hand down if I ever stop camping.
(I doubt I will stop willingly.)
Thanks for a great set of products and thanks for the extra double pull bags.. Good luck with your business. I will you all the luck you deserve and am sure you will continue to succeed with this and other ventures with quality and value like these products.

Review from Kickstarter
Just wanted to swing by and let you guys know that I finally got a chance to use my tarp. Verdict: 2-thumbs up! Worked really, really well. I was camped right at the edge of a mountain pass in Alaska with some serious winds ripping over my tent and tarp. The thing was rock solid. I woke up a few times just to check, worried the high winds would be a problem, but it was good to go. Very pleased with how smooth this whole campaign went. Now I feel confident enough to pull the trigger on the camping hammock system.

Most excellent. Mine arrived today in New Zealand. Looks great. Hoping to use it on a up coming 3 day tramp (hike in USA words) as a porch in front of the tent. Just have to sneak it into my wife's pack. thank you for a quick backer reward.

I'm really looking to receiving mine. I'll be hiking the Pictured Rocks National Shoreline Trail. I ordered the doors, and upgraded lines as well. I think this will be a great set. I can't wait to set it all up.

Review from Kickstarter
Came home to mine sitting on the front porch today. (shipping envelope came open, but it looks fine) Are you planning on adding this to your Amazon store? Being a kickstarter supporter, I'd love the chance to give a review after I've used it a bit.

I am very excited to get this tarp! I have 4 hammocks and 2 tarps (one does include a tarp). This is a great value! I ordered the doors to ship with my green tarp. Looking forward to using it motorcycle and car camping this year.
