    Ripstop source

    Here's another source I stumbled across. That camo is a really good price compared to other sites. Wish it were digital though:

    I've been looking for some digital camo in ACU or MARPAT woodland. If you find any, let me know. I've seen some, but it's very heavy like they use to make packs with or something.

    Universal Digital Camo Source

    Thanks FF for the source. I've been toying with the idea of buying a cheap NeoTarp until I acquire the skills to make my own Blackcat. That woodland camo from Denver Fabrics would match nicely.

    OWF has coated 1.9 oz ripstop in universal digital camo. It's $5.40 sq. yd. That might come close at least. I'm not wild about digital patterns (though I like them better than traditional woodland) but I'm thinking of getting some of it.

    BTW, I'd sure like a source for something like 1.9 oz, 60" ripstop that has ANY RealTree-ish pattern of camo. All I ever find is 7 oz. twill blends.

    I've seen that digital camo. It has a blackout coating on it. Would affect the breathability I think.

    There's a couple places to get woodland camo DWR, but you might be hard pressed to find realtree or digital.

    Am I the only one that has the Camo-Neo and gets bugged because of the weight? It's hard to get bugged by the price, though.

    I have the 9x9. Quite a few here own one. Hard to beat for the price. Only wish they still made digital camo. Tarps are kinda like shirts, it's good to have more than one depending on the season, weather, desire for a different look, loan to a friend, etc.

    I thought about buying the white done for my dad to use before I made a sil tarp. If they had an option that wasn't camo or white, I would probibly have got one.

    Someone really needs to talk to congress about all the camo in the world.
    Is that too much to ask? Girls with frikkin' lasers on their heads?

    Nope .... the "weight price" of that tarp is like owning a big SUV in a world of high priced gas... but hey it is camo... and it is low price....

    I've got one, I was thinking of cutting off the corners at the seams to make it a hex to save weight. You really wouldn't lose much coverage either.
