I'm still waiting for Multicam to be made in silnylon. Everything on the market today seems to be for clothing and gear, and just doesn't fit the needs of a lightweight backpacker. But, this is also interesting:
The O.P.S.E.C. poncho is very much like my Kelty poncho, years ago. The back of my Kelty poncho rolled up. The Kelty poncho was more lightweight.
I would like the tarp and the poncho in more lightweight material.
Duro has 70D 1.9 OZ NYLON FR FINISH "This is a breathable item and will be face treated with a durable water repellant finish." which, I hope, means DWR.
$6.49 per linear yard, 5 yard minimum.
I don't need IR compliant or FR Fire Retardant product.
I have sufficient training, not to have a fire under a tarp or in or near a tent.
I don't care who gets the more lightweight fabrics for outdoors enthusiasts: downproof, DWR, silnylon or even Epic or Momentum. I know I want them. Maybe Duro would do Cuben for us?
Now, that's a thought.
