    It was happening over a wide area on both of our tarps. I don't think these are silnylon. Per mosquito hammock's website "Made of waterproof Nylon Tafta (210T)". Like I said, it took a while before it started leaking. It wasn't pouring under the tarp, but if I was in the wilderness, it would have caused us problems because things were starting to get wet.

    I think the tarp has a PU coating. Tarps coated with PU are not really that waterproof. The tarp has tiny (almost microscopic) hole in it. If the the Polyurethane coating is not liberally applied then rainwater would somehow pass through it. I would suggest calling Tom Claytor for some clarification (a replacement?).
