People have been asking me when I will be making tarps to go with my hammocks, as well as a myriad of other things like synthetic under quilts and an integrated net hammock. I was concerned about spreading myself too thin though, so I contacted Evan at Terra Rosa Gear, who is already well known for his lightweight tarps and other gear, to see if he would be interested in designing a tarp specific to my hammocks and the Australian conditions. The good news is that he liked the idea and has come up with a really nice tarp that we will be offering in the new year.
Evan is as passionate about the outdoors as he is about supporting fellow Australian small business. He also sees the benefits of people making their own gear, which is the main reason Tier Gear exists. So we share a common philosophy.
I for one am looking forward to seeing Evans tarps flying over the top of the Tier Gear hammocks. Hammocks made in Tasmania and tarps made in Melbourne, Victoria.
