Anyone hav any idea what they would mean by PU coating on this fabric?
Found some here a few weeks ago. Made an experimental design hammock sock out of it. A little heavy, but it works after a re-design and some more fabric. Hit the top part with some Campmor silicone for a little dwr finish. It's now heavier and I'm waiting for the silicone to flash off so it doesn't kill what's left of my brains.
Love is blind. Marriage is an eye opener.
Any updates on this fabric? Like/Dislike?
Here is a snippet I found about the fabric, sounds heavy but great for weather protection (sock). Is it really a two-layer breathable goretex-like?
Looking at ordering some from Walmart online as it seems like a pretty good deal.
Well mine was not "WaterProof". I made a cup in some of it and put water in it, it held it til i squeezed it then it poured out of it. It may repel water but i don't know how long.
Thanks Terry, well I got lucky and found a WalMart that actually has a fabric department and they have this in stock, gonna pick up most likely 10 yards tomorrow. $1.99/yd, I hope it meets my expectations because I can't get good ripstop around here at all.
A poster above mentioned 1.6 oz/sy, that would be nice!
Probably make another knotty mod hammock, and a TED sock.

Made an 11'x58" gathered end out of this today. Seems really strong but really needs the knotty mod. Total weight with 6' whoopies, 10' adjustable 7/64 amsteel RL, and an oxford nylon stuff sack is 21.3 oz.
