Ok so I stumbled on a guy from Thailand making his own tarps and hammocks. He seems to just be getting started, from what I can tell. The description for his current tarp reads:
So along with general opinions...SUPER FLY TARP IN ASSORTED COLOURS.
THIS HAS 2 SIDES ONE IN DPM CAMO AND THE OTHER IN SILVER (THIS DEFLECTS THE HEAT AND GIVES YOU PROTECTION IN ALL WEATHERS).
MATERIAL IS NYLON SIZE IS 2X3 METERS, WEIGHT IS APPROX 330 GRAMS AND PACKS UP SMALL. IT HAS 6 FIXING LOOPS, 3 PER SIDE.
1. Can I assume this is PU coated nylon?
2a. Is 2x3 meters sufficient cover?
2b. Can I use that comfortably on a diagonal?
3a. Does 330 grams seem rediculously lightweight for a tarp? (i may have this all wrong)
3b. Could the light weight indicate a lower quality product than I am anticipating? The price is lower than anything I've seen before, but I'm aware that the cost of materials is also far lower in that part of the world.
(I havn't listed the supplier since I'm not affiliated and a bit wary of being accused of soliciting on someone elses behalf.)
Thanks for any opinions on the matter!
