Sorry for the thread necro, but I found some of this fabric by the yard (for $2/yard) and I'm experimenting with it. For the life of me the most I can find about this stuff calls it "multi-ply microporous polypropylene" -- no brand names for the material that I can dig up and no vendors that I can find. I am experimenting with using it for non-structural winter weatherization. I'm using it on the outside of an enclosed, insulated hammock. Will post results.

Did some googling and I am interested in the results, but that material is what they use for surgical gowns. Having zero experience with that material I have no input as to how it would work out...

I did make an insulated hammock with it. I used a polyester load bearing piece for the actual hammock, and then sewed some synthetic insulation and the polypropylene shell onto it. I'm going to sew a wrap-around top onto the hammock made with the same PP material. It's kind of a combo of a sock, underquilt, hammock and tarp. Total material cost was about $50. More later.
