The Night Grid Camo and Olive Green are both a high count (160x90) nylon taffeta. It's real close to 1.8oz per yard and densely woven. It feels a little plasticy at first, but after it's been used a few times it softens up and feels real nice.
The Black and the 20 or so other colors are a (110x80) count nylon taffeta and last piece I used came in at exactly 1.69oz. It's a little softer right away and you can see a little more light through it when held up to the light.
Note - The 2 numbers mentioned above (160x90 & 110x80) refer to the number of individual threads or "thread count" that make up the fabric. RamblinRev could probably tell us more about what all those numbers mean?
