    Trying to really blend in during those winter hangs?
    I may be dumb, but at least I'm ugly!

    I've done so much, with so little, for so long, now I can do anything with nothing.

    It's not peer pressure, it's just your turn.

    Looks like cinnamon has you covered, but if those don't work out contact Luke @ lukesultralight.com. I know he sells white sil raingear. Maybe he could get ya what ya need.

    That's the intention. My hunter green tarp doesn't blend in so well when the white stuff is on the ground.

    I was up in Seattle, had a nice look around Seattle Fabrics. I purchased 10 yards of very nice white silnylon. I am very pleased with their operation, clerks were helpful, the supplies were of decent quality. I will be buying more from them in the future.

    I bought a kit a few months ago with white silnylon, I was very unhappy with the quality of the silnylon, it had snags in it, I paid for quality fabric, I do not feel like I received quality fabric. There was a guarantee for the supplies in the kit, however, when I complained about the poor quality I was told to just dab some silicone on the snags. I did not want to "dab silicone, here and there on my tent". If I had wanted a sloppy job I would have bought seconds and taken my chance.

    I looked Seattle Fabric over very carefully, I did not find any junk, even in their odds and ends bin. My daughter bought some really nice ripstop nylon for $3.00 a yard in the mark down bin. I wish we could have purchased the whole roll, but we settled for 15 yards.
