    Good lookin' tarp. I'm (eventually) going to make a bigger tarp so I can fit my wife and me under it with extra room. I was considering the 10x12 size like you made...let us all know how that size works out for you!
    Just did the blow test and I couldn't blow through it. I tried forcing water through and nada. I guess it's Sil but not like the other sil I have, are there different types?

    Sil is impregnated and both sides look the same.

    There are also coated fabrics...you can usually tell the difference between the coated side and the non-coated (right) side.

    Both are waterproof, but sil is usually lighter.

    It's the same on both sides, it's not as slippery as the other stuff I have. I guess I'll have to find out next get together I go to.


    I am also going to make a 9ft version with what I have left. But I'm making snake skins next for it.
