    Desert Camo Ogee

    I found some fabric in desert camo and whittled up an ogee with it.

    Gargoyle that is sweet. That may be the ticket for the winter. With the lighter colors it may blend real well in the snow. Or you can try the dunes. Closest your going to get to a desert in MI.

    Thanks guys, it looks good. But its heavy.....50 oz. But for the right situation (canoeing/stealth) it'd be sweet.

    Video coming soon..starring yours truly

    What would be cool is if you could find some lightweight hunting camo fabric in ripstop nylon or polyester and make an Ogee out of that. Pick whatever pattern you would want. That would be really stealth in the piney woods.

    Great looking tarp. Perhaps you should send it to someone in Arizona or So Cal to do some desert type hanging.

    Cheers

    The fabric is the heavy part, Bags. My other ogees in 1.1 sil weigh in at 15 oz. This fabric is almost canvas like. Bonded to a green scrim on the inside (you can see the green in photo #1 of the original post) and polyurethaned. Super tough stuff with no real stretch factor.

    I wasnt a fan of the weight, but the camo/stealth factor won me over. Just another fun medium to use.

    11" foot at the ridge. Same as in the other Ogee videos and pics.

    Looks cool gargoyle. Bet it would look good in 1.9oz + urethane coating or 1.9oz home-sil Multicam.
    Still on the heavy side, but (shhhhhh-wispering)....Stealthy

    Yeah, I did the first few prototypes in digital pu, they came in at 30 oz. approx.
    But they look stealthy fer sure.
