    there have been times when people got a "misting" effect through their tarp in a hard rain, but people seem to have two basic opinions on what's happening...

    1)... the force of the hard rain is hitting the silnylon w/ more force than it is capable of stopping.

    2)... condensation has formed on the inside of the tarp (as it some times does) & the force of the hard rain drops is "thumping" the tarp, causing the condensation to become airborne.

    of course it could be some of both<G>.

    Thanks for the input everyone. I'll try to get some pics of the stand I made up soon.

    Happy hagin. Jeff P.
    the "durable water resistant" (DWR) is certainly good stuff to use for the right projects.
    as far as i know the silicon would do fine on it, making it pretty much water proof. that's what i used near the ends of something like a travel pod.
    then i used the DWR treatment in a spray can on the rest to add water & wind resistance while keeping the breath-ability.
    but even if you used the water proof silicon spray on it, i still wouldn't suggest using that for a tarp.
    but that's just me.
