    For your HH Explorer Deluxe, it's PU coated (as stock). The Expedition Asym, Explorer Deluxe, Scout and both Desert models have the 1.9 oz PU coated tarps; all others come with silnylon versions.

    Please some of you math guys double check me on this, but per the listed dimensions I'm getting around 4+ ozs per square yard fabric weight for this tarp. Seems a little heavy.
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming "WOO-HOO, what a ride!!"

    This seems like a decent camo tarp despite the weight for the $$$. I can't seem to find a cheaper one that is cat cut along the ridgeline...

    If you really want camo then go for it. For 1/2 the weight you can get the same thing in silnylon. But they do not make camo in silnylon.

    This is my problem. I want a camo tarp so I guess I'm forced to buy one which is heavier than silnylon...

    I want one too but I don't want to carry the extra pound.

    Lack of demand from the big boys. Mainly the mills, who originally make silnylon mainly for parachutes, don't see a market for camo silnylon.
