    I would have never thought of getting white if others hadn't asked for it. But that's why I like getting input.

    A common theme seems to be camo and I totally agree. I may have some exciting news on that in the next couple days, so stay tuned . What do you guys think of a white or Alpine type camo? e.g. White, black, gray, etc

    Alpine camo may have a limited niche, but I may find myself in it.
    Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the strength to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

    I'd buy an alpine or snow type camo as well, although i'd love to see uncoated in that pattern too

    Well since you asked, I have found myself after years of stealth camping, and living where everyone seems to wear navy blue, olive green or other natural shades of green or brown and lots of black, I am sick of blending in.

    Maybe it is my age, not too sure, men who dare to wear color and dress in something other than what most of what outdoorsy people wear, really turn my head, they look soo nice...I feel like olive green, forest green, browns and navy are a uniform we all wear, buy and blend in with. TOO CONFORMIST

    With my personality I can not conform, I have made my last two tarps out of white, I love the way they look, I enjoyed working on them. I am making a yellow next go around. My new top quilt is yellow, brighter than planned, it was supposed to be Aztec Gold, but it is bright yellow.

    My shopping list is White suitable for a tarp. I am toying with Lime Green.

    I noticed a point about reversible. I could see doing that with a hammock. Tarps would not work in my opinion. Two tones are nice and right now original. My Origami will be two tones, my up coming underquilt is going to be two tone, because I bought some nylon locally and it had flaws in it when I went to cut it. To compensate I will be making the Origami tarp two tone.

    I love Red, but it only appeals if it is bright fire engine red, no orange or purple tones.

    Back to the subject, a suitable to tarp making white, yellow, maybe snow sort of camo. I do venture into the far north from time to time.

    After working for the last few months on getting a true silnylon camo added to the lineup, I'm excited to let everyone know that we're finally there! It turns out that there are a number of challenges to doing quality camo prints on nylon over materials like polyester. This is probably one reason, as nuttysquirrel pointed out, that camo sil is hard to find or costs an arm and a leg.

    See below for a pic of the final sample. The final product will be a 1.15 oz/yd, 20D woodland camo silnylon. I'm particularly happy with how sharp the lines are within the camo print. For coating consistency and general look and feel, this camo sil is almost identical to the solid color sil that we currently offer. Great stuff. If I can scrape together enough funds I'd also like to do this in Alpine as well. I'll post a sample of that as soon as I have it....
