    All about that steath hang. And the Dissapointing Camo.

    At first I thought one could get a camo tarp in any design or color. Turns out the more colors you add to sil - nylon the more it falls apart. Hense, until the tech improves the lightest Sil is still a solid color.


    So part of this thread is about the fact that we are limited to old fashioned Vietnam green or fake Chinese digital. Turns out to get field proven 3D seclusion or a combination of brown & greys for spring & fall would work better.

    Does anyone know where to get better colored tarps,.

    I haven't seen anything like that detailed either...believe me I've looked. The only thing close to the colors is this digital camo but in woodland colors...It's a little different then the more green/ light green you normally see. It's PU coated not sil...hope this helps

    Thanks for the tip on this fabric. I just bought 10 yards of it. I'm planning to make at least an undershield and gear cover with it. And maybe a tarp.

    Cool camo patterns are usually under contract and not available in sil.
    PU coated is somewhat available.
    Multicam is available. Try here.

    These are good ideas, The Multicam was 2lbs? Ok - not sure why, Arks & Sparks found good material,

    Doesn't show the weight or thickness - I can call them.

    Yep, the BCUSA Multicam tarp is heavier... something about the coating being different in order to make it FR. Made in the USA.

    MultiCam®

    70D 1.9 oz nylon ripstop fabric

    Urethane coating (1-1.25 oz per sq yd)

    Fire retardant

    IR compliant

    Tabs: 16 perimeter and 3 ridge line

    Weight (includes stuff sack): 2 lbs, 8.25 oz

    I guess I should say that I have one of these and it's very nice... I took it out this weekend but never used it. If you need any better pics of it let me know and I'll see what I can do for you.

    You can check around for a DPM (British Army) "Basha". It has the dark British camo pattern which in my opinion works extremely well in most US forests. Bashas are approx 6X9 ft and are PU coated nylon, seam sealed, very rugged and have all manner of tie downs, grommets and straps. I do not have the weight handy, but have two at home and would guess they about 1.5 lbs. That weight could be trimmed down if you removed all the webbing (they can be folded in half and used as stretchers).

    It would of course not be Sil-nylon.
