    Yeah, we really get screwed up here in Canada... Most places are still pricing things like there's a 50% exchange rate, instead of being at par...

    That said they do have good sales sometimes... I paid $4/m for goretex one time.

    Well, at least there's OD silnylon for sale there. It's nearly impossible to find OD or Camo Sil anywhere in this country. My 'tinfoil hat' conspiracy theory is that the military has giant warehouses full of the stuff under guard, lock and key for their own purposes.

    Oh crud! ... now they know I know!

    Scary thing is that's a good possibility.

    7075 Al is very hard to get these days because its what's used in weapons manufacture, so most of it goes there. The military machine is a big consumer.

    WP breathable could be used for a tarp but it would be heavy and a waste of the product. It might have a hammock application

    i didn't know sil came in camo.

    the marine digital is the good stuff, its woodland colors instead of the regular grey digital, can't find it anywhere. not in ripstop anyway.

    Sil doesn't come in camo, at least none that I've seen. I did pickup some army ACU in about a 2 ounce taffeta at Walmart in the dollar bin. I plan to make something like a JRB No-Sniveler out of it. Maybe with Climashield.

    The Coyote Brown that's used in the ULBP? Cool! It'd be nice to have a HexCat in the right color!
