    Need a white tarp that cuts light by 25-50%

    Odd request, I know.
    It's going to do double duty as a light diffuser on a backcountry photo project.
    I'm even willing to spring for Cuben Fiber, but it has to be white and rectangular. I know white CF8 is pretty thin, but unfortunately, I haven't been able to get my hands on any to measure with my light meter.

    Right now, it seems like my two main options are a custom out of 30d Silnylon (but I'm hardly a qualified thread injector) or an 8x10 Tarp from Hyperlite Mountain Gear.

    Any sources for white tarps in 30d or CF I might be missing?

    Thanks!

    Give lukesteg (hf handle) @ Lukesultralight.com a jingle. He makes and sells white silnylon rain gear on his and might be willing to custom one up for ya. By day he works for hammockgear making cuben tarps (among other things I'm sure). He would certianly be good resource in that arena.
    Directionally challenged...comicly so.

    Not all who wonder are lost...But I'm probably just lost.

    You may want to check these out. I have one in white and a multi colored one. They are great tarps.
