    polycro

    I had a polycro groundcolth from gossamer gear a while back. It was super fragile stuff. I looked at the GOLD website but could not find if their tarps were made from a thicker plastic than what I used for a groundcolth....

    I would be real concerned using this stuff as a pack cover or a poncho. I can see using it as a tarp in calmer weather, but I can't see the polycro lasting all that long in an abrasion prone situation....

    I just made up a poncho with cowl-type hood. It's only 2.8 ounces but I think that you're right, mad goat, it's pretty fragile stuff. I'll test it out since it's already made.

    Got a 5x5' emergency solar water still and wood pile cover out of the rest of that piece, leaving 17 feet, the rest of a clearance item that cost only $7 at Wal-Mart.

    But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed. (Luke 5:16 NIV)

    He said to them, “But now let the one who has a moneybag take it, and likewise a knapsack. And let the one who has no sword sell his cloak and buy one." (Luke 22:36 ESV)

    While people are saying, “There is peace and security,” then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. (1 Thessalonians 5:3 ESV)

    Old thread I know but...

    Does anyone know if this is the same stuff as the LiteTrail Nylobarrier bags are made of?
