So obviously when I get my tarp I'm going for the Sil, because the cuben fiber is just too far beyond my price range and I really don't need to worry about saving an extra 8oz. But I've gone into different sporting goods stores and (no surprise here) no one in sport chalet or sports authority had even HEARD of SilNylon. What scared me was when I went into REI and experienced the same issues. Has anyone had these problems before when looking for equipment? I did find a SilNylon pack cover that the employees seemed to not even know existed, however I have only seen one, and only in one location.
I will end up getting the WB SF when I can, but I was wondering if other people had experienced something like this when they were tarp shopping? SilNylon seems to be the best known secret in the world of camping!
