Canopy

I have a Hennessy ultralight hammock/shelter. I went out this last weekend and had a great time but realized that the canopy only covered the hammock and had little to no room for sitting (hanging out) under to get out of the rain.
Does anyone recommend a good tarp/canopy to hand up separate or to use in place of the canopy that comes with the Hennessy hammock?

i can vouch for kelty's Noah tarp - it's actually a pretty good tarp for the money. a little heavy but a ton of coverage. you can do them down low for shelter or open them up for a simply enormous amount of covered space.

I just ordered a Warbonnet Superfly. I've read a lot of good about it. I'll post a follow up when I get it in.

I love my Noah 16 covers everything with room to spare. But I got it to pull double duty by tacking it down low in winter as a full shelter with doors the way I stake it down.
