    WTB: OD Olive Drab Silnylon Tarp

    looking for an OD Olive Drab Silnylon Tarp. Camo would be cool. Apparently that is impossible, but somebody has to make OD right ?

    The closest you are going to find pre-made in Sil is probably the JRB 11x10 (moss green).

    You can find foliage green silnylon here, and you may be able to get a tarp made from it by Brian at OES or some other custom tarp maker...

    That's how I did it.

    I would term Brandon's Superfly, at least the one I have, as olive drab. Don't know if he's changed colors...

    I just got a remnant of the Foliage Green. I *love* it. It's a nice dark green, so it's not an Olive Drab, but it's a great stealthy color IMHO.

    Have you been happy with the Remnant for Waterproofness

    Have you been happy with the Remnant for Waterproofness? Did you order the material and send it to Brian, or did he order it for you? That sounds like a decent option, Everything I have ever heard about OES's tarps has been positive Do you have any pics of your green tarp?

    It was just a remnant, 2 yards. I only bought it to make some snakeskins out of for a (very heavy) camo tarp I'm going to sew up later this month. And I've only had it for two days, so no real experience with it because taking it out of the box and fondling it slick goodness.

    Brian from OES is making a maccat standard for me, in a color that was described as "brown-green" so i would suspect it is the "moss" or "foliage" that i have used before.

    if you notice, Brian offers alternative color choices on his standard tarps, but you have to ask for a special order of these color choices on the maccats.

    he also says that the sil used in the brown/green (moss?) is a higher quality than that of the standard sharkskin grey that is his default color.

    UPDATE!

    I got my order from Noah Lamport, Inc

    I was hoping for Black Silnylon, but apparently the "seconds" they get can be pretty much anything and they had no black. I expressed my disappointment and asked if they get any more "woodsy" colors, or ever see any camouflage silnylon. The sales person said no, but we do have Taupe.

    I was thinking like a light beige like taupe stockings, and he said no, it's brown.

    I just got the package a few minutes ago, sure enough, it's a nice olive brown!

    I'm betting if you sent this off to a tarp maker, you'd get a really nice tarp in a color you'd like. I'm loving the looks of this!
