Sorry about that. Yes, it was from soldiersystems.net
I believe there is no way to have a patterned silnylon. I am not certain, but I believe silnylon is impregnated with sil while it is still a thread, and then woven into a cloth. Once the sil is on you can't get a print pattern to stick. That is why all patterns are coated fabrics.
I am planning on using the 1.55 oz stuff for a tarp, using the diy sil process.
One idea for a small light tarp is to make a asym diamond using one width of fabric. I believe someone here posted the plans for that.
Warbonnet sells a camo silnylon Superfly, so it can be done.
Well color me corrected. Thats the first time I have seen a patterned waterproof fabric that wasn't PU coated.
Kicking this one back around.....how about the 40D multicam sil nylon from duro sewn up as a tarp and a DIY sil treatment. I have been browsing that thread today and it looks promising I just ordered the WBBB in multi cam and would love a matching tarp.
I've wondered the same thing, swank, but didn't know if the DWR already on it was compatible with silicon.

I think they call it a nano finish? If you look at their water tests, I can't completely interprete the report but it looks like it holds its water repellency for many many washes?
BCUSA have 10x10 pu coated and silnylon multicam tarps. Also 5x7
I believe they will quote for custom sizes.
I believe they use 1.9 sil and that is a heavier material, thanks!l
