    I ordered 3 yards.

    I may have to quit ordering material until I use up the stuff I already have.

    Is this material OK to use for a tarp or are you using it for a hammock. I have 5 or 6 crazy creek cribs I take on our scout trips and I would like to make a simple tarp for each hammock.

    It should be ok for tarps, I would think. Heavier than the 1.3oz silnylon, but lighter than some other options. I only bought 3 yards of this since I already have some silnylon on the way for a new tarp.

    I'm a sucker for this type of material. I'll find SOME use for it.

    Yeah, it should be just fine for a tarp. Note, however, that it's 1.6 oz. before the coating was applied.

    That's the stuff I used on the outer body of my dual mode bridge hammock. Very very thin. Weighs in at 1.05 oz/sq yd. The inner body material is just as light, also from DIY Tactical.

    Two layers of this 1.05 oz stuff is holding me up just fine. About 190 lbs.

    I bought 7 yards of this same fabric at walmart at $3/yard a month or so ago. Haven't had time to do anything with it.
