I found a 8.5 x 7 multicam tarp for sale for anyone interested.

I'm still waiting for Multicam to be made in silnylon. Everything on the market today seems to be for clothing and gear, and just doesn't fit the needs of a lightweight backpacker. But, this is also interesting:

The O.P.S.E.C. poncho is very much like my Kelty poncho, years ago. The back of my Kelty poncho rolled up. The Kelty poncho was more lightweight.
I would like the tarp and the poncho in more lightweight material.
Duro has 70D 1.9 OZ NYLON FR FINISH "This is a breathable item and will be face treated with a durable water repellant finish." which, I hope, means DWR.
$6.49 per linear yard, 5 yard minimum.
I don't need IR compliant or FR Fire Retardant product.
I have sufficient training, not to have a fire under a tarp or in or near a tent.
I don't care who gets the more lightweight fabrics for outdoors enthusiasts: downproof, DWR, silnylon or even Epic or Momentum. I know I want them. Maybe Duro would do Cuben for us?
Now, that's a thought.
