The Monster Fly is our top of the line silpoly winter tarp. It is the culmination years of outdoor gear design and engineering experience brought together into an elegant and easy to use bombproof shelter system in the trees. The Monster Fly is available in four different lengths to better suit your exact needs. It comes in the following length models 12' , 13' , & 14' long ridgelines. Six weight reducing cat cuts are put into the body and doors of the tarp contributing to its stable shape. The cat cuts also help keep the tarp material taught even in rain and wind providing you with fuller coverage all the. Optional side panel pulls can be added to the tarp for additional rigging points for strong storms. They may also be used in conjunction with a CRL (continual ridgeline) and external pole mod kit to provide a little bit of additional interior room. If you truly want to experience all the Monster Fly has to offer though, you will want to pickup an internal end pole mod kit as well. The kit is a plug and play system designed to allow a set of 133" Easton aluminum poles to be added to the tarp. Simply insert the pole tips into the extra beastyD ring on the four center body tie outs. Then clip the center of the pole into the underside of the ridgeline using the two center most accessory loops that come on every Monster Fly and mini buckles included with the pole kit. This will increase the strength and rigidity of the tarp quite significantly. However we advise against using the poles in high winds. Additionally the internal end pole mod allows for self supporting porch mode using the existing function of the optional guy like kit with tension lock hook hardware and Dyneema lines. The monster Fly also comes with button snaps spaced every five inches on the doors at both ends allowing the doors to be fully closed. Closing the doors fully in the winter time can help to create a micro climate inside the tarp keeping it a few degrees warmer inside making it suitable for four season camping.
