    For The Camo Fans!

    Thought someone might be interested considering all the talk I hear (see?) about camo fabrics.

    Camo of varied weights on sale!

    I need winter camo now - pure white - my claytor jungle isn't going to be very stealthy against the new fallen snow

    even that 500d is pretty heavy. to bad nobody has any light ripstop dig.
    owf has some pu coated stuff, but it's 4 oz/yd.

    i like the marine woodland dig alot better than the typical urban dig like seen above.

    I confess I'm a sucker for camo. So I sprung for some of this woodland camo 1.9 oz ripstop, and also universal digital in the "Light weight nylon" variety. No weight numbers given, but universal digital is cool, worth a try.

    Showed up today. The digital camo is advertised at 60" wide, I got 58". The woodland camo is advertised at 58" wide, I got 63".

    The woodland camo is indeed ripstop, and once upon a time it may have been 1.9 oz, but there is a shiny water repellent backing (its the shiny surface you find inside many tarps), which brings the weight up to 3.2 oz / sq yd. Hadn't figured on that. Guess I'll be making stuff sacks for Christmas presents, maybe a tarp.

    The digital camo is not so obviously coated, although it is surely very water resistant, and comes in at 4.4 oz /sq yd.

    The digital camo could work I think for Dutch and his hammock / pack. Dutch, PM in bound.

    what is wrong with places like this? don't they realize that people want to know if it's coated or breathable? i hate when retailers don't even know what they are selling.

    was it 3.2 oz per square yard? or linear yard of the 58" wide? if what you measured was 3.2oz per linear yard thats essentially 1.98oz per sq yard

    just a thought , maybe wishful thinking

    wishful thinking.

    Computed the number of square inches, transformed to square yards, divided into measured weight.

    sorry...

    These guys sell all sorts of camo fabrics.... But only "wholesale", not to the general public. The prices are nice though....

    Maybe one of the business owners who have some "extra" capital or cash flow would consider buying and reselling some in hammock sized or tarp sized pieces.
