    Silnylon is fairly light and makes a terrific tarp.

    I too started with a diy tarp made from a superlight fabric found at WM. .65 oz./ square yd IIRC. After coating it 3 times with diy silicone, and it would still mist thru, it weighed more than the Tadpole I have now and I probably had as much money in it.
