ok i pulled out the tarp for my hh today and attached the RWH to it and found out something. size 10 barrel swivels arent large enough. i broke one! :o so now i have to go out and buy some larger ones and retie both my RWHs. other than that the RWH works great with the tarps. now i need a hiking trip while its raining to really test them out! :D

It's what we all hope for while hiking, RAIN----- :lol:

Just had a thought----- use cotton mason line, water has a tendency to "stick" to cotton and would divert more water off the tarp line down to your container, just a thought

i thought about that first but went with the fishing line. doing the math it wouldnt save that much water and the fishing line weighs less.

think about it this way. i am using the stock hh tarp which is a diamond shape. so the mose water is going to run to one point on each side. that one point is where the RWHs are at. and the storage container is a 1L platy bag. with the coverage of the tarp its doesnt take that much rain to fill the bottle up. the only wild card is the trees ill be hanging under. and the way i made them i can move them to somewhere else if i need water that bad.

and im not happy with mason line right now anyway. i need some for something else and i cant find what i want. i want black. i know they make it and sell it. i used to sell it at work. now i cant seem to find it anywhere. i dont really want a white or a bright color because i dont want it to be easily seen.
