    If you can find one, the Chinook 12'x9.5' tarp is a good candidate. It's made of a PU coated ripstop polyester and it has small cat cuts on all the edges so it pitches tight easily.

    Closer to 10x10 are tarps from Equinox, Etowah and others. They have silnylon versions and PU coated versions.

    Good lock with your search.

    Here is a link I finally found for the Chinook that actually added it to the cart. All the others I tried said out of stock right away.

    Take a look at the Grand Trunk Funky Forest, good value for the money $29.97.



    The Kelty Noah 12x12 is a great tarp if weight is not a huge issue...

    To me a mid priced tarp is silnylon... With that said I suggest Brian from OES. His tarps are top notch and he has great customer service. He'll customize a tarp to your liking. From color to size. May I suggest 11' x 10'. 10' ridge line really isn't that big but it works.

    Also there's warbonnet, jrd, wilderness logistics, etc.

    IMHO, the Hennessy Hex PU coated tarp is a great buy at $59. You can sometimes find them on eBay for a bit less with free shipping. They are on the heavy side at 23oz, but that is only 5oz heavier than the silnylon version that is twice the price.
