    9x9 tarps?

    Who makes a nice 9x9 tarp in a subdued color? I don't want a Kelty. Too bright! I'd love a camo 9x9, but Sportsman's always seems to be out. Argh! I used to have a GT Funky Forest. It was nice, but I really don't want another dark blue tarp.

    Any other good 9x9 tarps available in dark colors such as forest green or brown?

    Any tarp makers willing to do a custom order?

    www.outdoorequipmentsupplier.com does custom orders. You'd have to email and see if he can do a 9x9 w/o putting in an extra couple seams...fabric usually comes in ~65" max width so it's hard to find a bolt big enough to make 9x9. That's why JRB's are actually just under 8' square.

    Hey Alan - I just had someone else send a question in through my website requesting an 8.5x8.5. (PS - If that was someone from HF and you read this - I tried responding and the email you left in the webform didn't work)

    It can certainly be done, and I could do it - but I've got to let you know right away that it'll be a while. I've still got a backlog of tarps orders to fulfill which has kept my turn around time at an uncomfortable level.

    That... and I am going to have to give myself a Backwoods Daydreamer vacation soon as we're working on selling the house (and my gear shop is the room that needs the biggest overhaul). That'll put me out of commission for a while.

    I will have Treebark Brown available for tarps in the very near future.

    I recommend Warbonnet - probably he can give you a better time frame. JRB can do their 8x8 in a brown as well.

    Classy. Vendors recommending other vendors like this show that they care more about the customers and community than they do about making a quick buck. Good on you, sclittlefield.
