    When you find some, let me know. I'd like to make a tarp or two.

    rockywoods.com has MARPAT in a 1.1oz ripstop nylon pure finish, 58-60" wide for $5.49/yd.

    I've never used this particular fabric, but certainly willing give it a try.

    Yah, I've seen that one. Was hoping to find some MARPAT Silnylon. The only waterproof stuff I've seen is pretty heavy.

    As far as I know, virtually no one makes sil camo--of any kind. I'm not sure where Warbonnet gets theirs...it's my understanding that the printing of the dye on the base fabric makes getting the silicone into the fibers more difficult. Thus, more expensive, and less likely to be sold in small lots.

    I do highly recommend DIY Gear Supply's olive brown 30d sil; in most of the terrain that MARPAT works, that stuff also works very well. Just my opinion, though.
