    Neat sheets are waterproof breathable and very sand resistant. The make great picnic blkts or beach blankets.

    In a hammock, they make good summer TQ and UQ. In the summer, I often just lay on top of it in the hammock instead of any suspension.

    Alternatives are disposable bed sheets, surgical scrubs and surgical blankets.

    They may be seasonal but I've seen them at places like dollar general, Ingles and Kroger supermarkets in the picnic section.

    I also think I've seen them at at Target.

    I can send it prolly Tuesday if you want (& I can find it ).
    Cool .... I have been making rain mitts ala the ol' ULA Rain Mitts and been using an old Dri-Duck poncho ... will tear easy but good for walking in cold rain while hiking with poles......
    I am not sure what the ULA Mitts were made of but mine seem like a papery heavier but light material similar to Dri-Duck......
    Thanks guys.
