    I confess I'm a sucker for camo. So I sprung for some of this woodland camo 1.9 oz ripstop, and also universal digital in the "Light weight nylon" variety. No weight numbers given, but universal digital is cool, worth a try.

    Showed up today. The digital camo is advertised at 60" wide, I got 58". The woodland camo is advertised at 58" wide, I got 63".

    The woodland camo is indeed ripstop, and once upon a time it may have been 1.9 oz, but there is a shiny water repellent backing (its the shiny surface you find inside many tarps), which brings the weight up to 3.2 oz / sq yd. Hadn't figured on that. Guess I'll be making stuff sacks for Christmas presents, maybe a tarp.

    The digital camo is not so obviously coated, although it is surely very water resistant, and comes in at 4.4 oz /sq yd.

    The digital camo could work I think for Dutch and his hammock / pack. Dutch, PM in bound.

    what is wrong with places like this? don't they realize that people want to know if it's coated or breathable? i hate when retailers don't even know what they are selling.

    was it 3.2 oz per square yard? or linear yard of the 58" wide? if what you measured was 3.2oz per linear yard thats essentially 1.98oz per sq yard

    just a thought , maybe wishful thinking

    wishful thinking.

    Computed the number of square inches, transformed to square yards, divided into measured weight.

    sorry...

    I just bought some Universal Digital Camo from one of the local WalMarts.

    About 3-4 oz per square yard (haven't weighed it yet) about 60/40 Nylon cotton blend in a ripstop pattern. $3/m ($2.77/yd)....

    Emailed Seth from trecklight a couple of questions I had and he said they are going to add a camo hammock to there line sometime with in the next coming year, along with a tarp it would be great if the tarp he adds was available in camo also!
