    Found a source for multicam ripstop

    Found a source for multicam fabric including ripstop that I thought I would share with the group. You can buy directly from the manufacturer.

    What would be its use? What is that NanoSphere treatment?

    It looks like an effective camoflage but I'm looking for tarp material. I wonder what that NonoSphere treatment might be.

    So is this all the same standard woodland camo pattern? I didn't see anywhere to select other patterns.

    It's all Multicam not Woodland camo. AFAIK there is only one multicam, I don't think they make different varieties of it.. its a one size fits all camo pattern.
    Good luck,

    I'm not sure if I understand what you mean by "standard woodland camo" are you talking about the US M81 woodland pattern ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Woodland_(camouflage) )? I think this sight only sells the new Multicam pattern. The old M81 pattern, though very good in dense forest, jungle and scrub tends to "blob out" in open grass lands, desserts and against snow. As my camo stuff wears out I'm replacing it with Multicam, even though the new pattern is much more expensive, it should save me from having to purchase duplicate clothing items for varying seasons and enviroments. For example now my early season duck hunting clothes are the green heavy M81 woodland pattern and then for late season I switch out to a dead marsh kinda of brown/tan heavy option. Multicam should serve well in both cases and should also do well enough in a deer stand, where people tend to use the camo patterns that look like trees. I don't use the tree/forest based camo , because my philosophy of camo is if it doesn't look like anything, it shouldn't draw the eye to it. That is why I'm a recent big fan of the Multicam.

    I think this stuff may have use as a winter tarp for use with a stove jack BETA
    70D NYLON FR COATED, http://duroindustries.com.s134272.gr...0d-1-9oz-nylon , it'd be pretty heavy though. A body might be better off carrying more down filled quilts and bags instead of a heavy tarp and wood stove, of coarse it depends on the type of trip they're on.

    It just looked alot like woodland camo to me but I just wasn't versed on the multicam. Looks like multicam is more versatile.

    Here's what wiki has to say about it http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multicam . I think it's versatility is it's strongest pro. Maybe not perfect in every environment, but pretty good most of them.

    Thanks for the heads up, would be a nice tarp for stealth.

    Their Zeta 70D 1.9 oz/sy looks good for a hammock body at a reasonable price. The Epsilon 40D 1.55 oz/sy also looks good but is too pricey.
