    Hi
    Yes you both have and thanks, it is such a pain to get any sort of out door gear here and light weight material is unheard of.
    That digital ripstop would it be suitable for a tarp? or if not what would you use it for, if it's good for a tarp I'd take 6 yrd of it.
    Thanks

    We'll since it's not coated, I would not use it for a tarp. You could make a double layer hammock, topcover, etc.

    I double sprayed both sides of the fabric I found with the orange lid waterproofer from the Wal-mart camping dept. & was able to get water to bead on the surface but would never use this for a tarp it's just too porous. I'm using a small piece for my first attempt at an underquilt. (That's why I sprayed it, to get a little DWR like coating)
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming "WOO-HOO, what a ride!!"

    This is digital camo right?
    Can I add some more yards if I need to?

    I'll buy 10 yrds from you if there is enough.

    Quick introduction: I've been lurking on this forum for a while, but haven't had much to contribute. I have kids in need of hammocks, at least IMHO, so some of this stuff should do the trick. Thanks.
