    Silnylon vs PU coated
    Hennessy Hex, sil 18.6 oz and $120.95 PU Polyester 23 oz, and $59.95
    Silnylon is weather resistant and will "mist" under heavy continuous rain, PU PE is closer to waterproof. Nylon stretches when wet, Polyester is size stable.

    @BT - When I bought my Hennessy, delivery was immediate. can't fault CS.

    A std PU Nylon is better in every way except weight. Waterproof, less prone to damage from above, less stretch, less noise, less wind flapping, easier to repair, can handle being stepped on etc a little more, cheaper.
    I may add the HH Hex PU, and only use my OES and Warbonnet when the weight is on my back. Makes no sense to take my lighter ones while on the motorcycle. I'm sure they will last longer as well, not being in the sun as much.

    Just make a DIY tarp out of ripstop and diy sil nylon i made a 11' 6'' X 10'' Tarp for around $30- $40 and it weighs 23OZ stuff sack and snake skins included. Thats the plus to a DIY i used all my scraps to make the skins and stuff sack. Plus its tons of fun!

    i would love to do that but i would need to barrow a tarp from someone in the style that i want to lay on top of the fabric and trace so i know that when i cut it out that it will work right

    but how can you transfer the image or blueprints from the putter to the tarp it would take like 1000 sheets of paper and a whole ink cartrage and a roll of tape lol and then with my luck it would still be crooked lol

    You could try the Grand Trunk Funky Forest Tarp.

    Draw the shape to scale, cut it out, shine a light on it, pin fabric to wall, trace shadow onto fabric.

    BTW I have never done this and have no idea if it would work. I was just in a MacGruber mood.
