Hi there, I need to purchase a new Bivvy, I've hear the DD tarps are very good so I am thinking of buying one. However, ideally I need one in a browny tan colour. On the DD website they offer a "coyote brown" bivvy but it appears to be much darker thank other coyote kit, more of a chocolate brown. Can anyone clarify for me if this is just the image or actually the colour. Thanks

Have a look at the issue desert dpm basha.

Its actually no heavier than the DD tarp, but a LOT tougher and better made.

I bought into the DD hype. The tarp sits collecting dust now. I'm back to my issue basha.

I have several of the dessert bashas, they are good.

They are about 8'x7', depends what size of tarp you are after.

This is something I am planning on trying.

I have the dd xl in coyote brown for hammock camping. It's lighter than an army issue basher and double the size. Brilliant for hammocks as the issue tarp isn't quite long enough. I'll try and up,load a pic of how dark it is for you

The issue tarp is only just long enough to cover a hammock and in bad weather you need more overhang or you get wet.

The DD Tarp is a much darker brown than usual Coyote.

I had Bilmo make me an XL canvas tarp in brown. If weight wasn't a concern I would recommend this.
