    Okay did some more digging..some of hh's tarps are sil and some are pu. As is MEC's.

    Perhaps you got a PU tarp by accident?

    I suggest being aware of the fact that if you use "baby powder", your gear will smell like baby powder. Maybe it will smell stronger than you might like.

    I would find Talc withou any scent, same thing just no baby smell. It might take a little search, but it would be worth it unless you really like the baby smell.

    I purchased a monsoon during the Oct sale, one of the doors is exactly as you say, and the tarp was listed as a silnylon tarp, it also weights what the silnylon is advertised to weight.

    I plan on contacting Hennessy by phone, they've been great so far, I see yours is 4 years years old. Who knows what they'll say if you contact them, but you'll never know unless you ask.

    When I take it out of the snake skins, parts of it are practically glued together and make an awful ripping noise when pulled apart (no damage however). i.e. when I take it out of the snake skins, a lot of it stays bunched up.
    It has always been sticky, but I just put up with it...until I bought a big silnylon Guides Tarp from MEC and realized that the MEC silnylon didn't stick to itself nearly as much...and come to think of it, neither does the silnylon on my Big Agnes ground sleeping thingy.
    I searched the forum with no luck, so I ask you, good peeps of HF, how sticky is too sticky and is there a way to keep my silnylon from sticking together so much?
    (I think I read in the DIY silnylon thread and slipping grip-clips thread that different thicknesses of sil coating can have an effect on the grip/stickiness of the fabric)
