What an excellent product to add to the hiking/backpacking eqipment. As with any new piece of gear there is a bit of a learning curve, but with practice, setup became easier with each use. It performs as advertised and is of good construction with excellent weather protection for its size, so much so that the tent you see in the picture was used for storage and changing of clothes, even with 20-30 mph winds and light rain. Works well with the ENO Singlenest or as a stand alone shelter for a rest on the trail or in a campsite, it can be set up using trekking poles when trees are not available. I highly recommend the DryFly, it is money well spent!
Easy and light weight
November 10, 2010
I received this just in time to pack for a rainy backpack trip. Despite the fact the trees were pretty spread out we were able to tie all the cords out, with some extra rope, and have a nice size dry area for 8 campers to enjoy the evening and breakfast together. It was a bit tight for 8 people, but invaluable to have. We didn't raise the middle of the tarp as recommended in order to cover more area, so water baled over the edges periodically. After camp was packed one person used this tarp as a backpack raincover. The tarp material repells water so well you can just shake it out to dry it. The ties dry quickly as well. The material seems like it will last a long time and is lighter weight than your average tarps. I am very happy I got this!Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, Great value, quick drying

Great rain fly for light to moderate rains, a bit small for heavy rains or windy conditions. Nest with hammock perfect for overnight outing. light and durable. Takes about 10 minutes to set up and about 10 minutes to pack away. I do recommend this Eno DryFly Rain tarp.Pros: Great design, Build quality

If you take the time to rig this tarp properly, the rain can't touch you. I've weathered several Florida thunderstorms in my camping hammock, and this tarp has kept me bone dry. I only wish it was a tad longer so that its main seam more easily covered my hammock. As it is, I have to fiddle with the rigging a bit to get it centered.

Great product!- It's a fine addition to consider with any ENO Hammock. For the price, it provides great coverage and easy setup. I only made the mistake of introducing my girlfriend to it She now wants me to carry it on all our day hikes.

got to use this tarp twice so far with the hammock system.. once with light rain and 30mph winds overnight, kept me totally dry and stayed in place even with the wind.. the other time was just with the threat of rain, but since its so easy to set up it was better than having to wake up in the middle of the night to do it. I've used it two other times to keep gear dry (set up closer to the ground) and it worked like a charm.. would not hesitate to recommend it to a friend.Pros: easy set up, light weight, includes stuff sack
The Ultimate Outdoor Solution

This combined with an ENO singlenest Hammock makes every outdoor experience a comfortable adventure. Easy to set up, great coverage, versatile, and rugged. This tarp kept me dry through two rainy nights while camping along the James River in VA. One night we got a descent storm and my friend had to take shelter under the mighty ENO DryFly. We stayed dry through hours of heavy wind and rain. Better yet were the bragging rights that my buddy's tarp paled by comparison. Set up and tear down are simple. We moved base camp 3 times over a 6 day trip and everything went smoothly. You can set this up pretty much anywhere with its lengthy strings on all 8 points. It's almost like a challenge to find the best and craziest place to set up your nest. I highly recommend the ENO product line for everyone and anyone who loves the outdoors.

In Aug. I'm heading for Venice & Croatia to mingle with the Euro hoards on vacation. Camping is an option I have used before, but I don't want to lug along a tent. The eno fly is perfect together with a bag liner for summer camping in Euro tourist areas.
Keeps the rain and wind at bay
November 29, 2010
I bought this because my boyfriend already had the 2-person hammock and needed some weather protection when hiking/camping. We stayed at a friends camp and ended up outside, with no tent. So glad we had this rain fly and the hammock. The fly kept our stuff dry when it rained and kept the wind at bay during the night. Large enough to cover the 2 of us, our stuff and our 80lb dog thru the night (yes, he sleeps in the hammock with us). Definitely would recommend for those that like to pack light or just want some protection for your gear. Blocks the wind and rain well and is cool enough to lay under on a hot day.Pros: Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, Great value
