    Just received mine today. Looks ok. It's a bit thinner than PU coated nylon you usually see. (Not sure what it's coated with actually). It looks like it's supposed to . Feels a bit rubbery to the touch, not something you want up against your skin.

    Do you have an actual weight?
    My knife is so sharp it cut the sixth finger off my right hand! On the plus side, Inigo Montoya no longer hunts me.

    Not yet. I can try to get that for you. It feels a lot lighter than 1.9oz. DWR.

    weight

    got mine today. Comes in at 2.9 oz / sq. yd .

    Agree with NCPatrick, it has a sort of rubbery feel to it. I think I'll make a rain cloak with it.

    Wow, I'm surprised at that weight. It doesn't seem that heavy in person.
