    What's the size on these? 8x10?

    Notice "Marpat" catches my attention.

    I think 8x8 .....maybe 8x10.....if you bought two you could sew them together and have a B/Arse tarp.

    100 bucks free shipping for two....

    What are they made from? Inquiring minds want to know. BTW, Semper Fi!

    How much does the tarp weigh?

    Any tie outs or grommets? How many? Where placed on the tarp?

    Got a verified size?

    (They are made of silnylon on the camo side and thin rubber on the coyote side..) Are you sure this is silnylon material? Silnylon is impregnated ripstop nylon, so why a thin rubber coating? (for extra waterproof?) Is this a double layer material?

    Any pics and close-ups?

    Thanks!

    I would imagine the rubber coating is for blackout? Those forces boys dont like shining to much light about the place for some reason
    I dream of a better tomorrow, where chickens can cross the road and not be questioned about their motives.

    These are made out of 1.9oz Nylon with a K-Coat (Blackout coating) urethane membrane on one side. It's around 3oz per square yard on the material. Heavier than the gram weenies will carry, but not so heavy you can't backpack it.

    I have seen a couple of these in a surplus store, and I'd estimate the weight at around 2lbs.

    They really are a badass looking tarp. Yes a bit heavy, but will likely last a LONG time.
