Fabric for UQ Weather Cover
Was out a couple of weekends ago and the wind was blowing pretty good. Had my tarp w/doors pitched pretty low, but the wind still seems to get under it some.
Saw that Shug had essentially an UQ cover that he puts on when it's going to rain or be windy, and I've watched the videos, but haven't seen what it is actually made of.
My thought is that SilNylon would keep the wind out and the rain splatter off (a concern with keeping my nice JRB MW3 dry, less of a concern with my Shamu which seems to be pretty water/wind resistant), but will it lead to condensation issues? Regular 1.1 would probably breathe, but might not accomplish the other objectives. . .
Anyone have any recommendations?

I don't know if you've seen the threads but 2QZQ just starting making a breathable UQ protector. It's made of ripstop nylon and it's getting good reviews, it may be cheaper/easier to buy rather than make.

I like refried beans. That's why I wanna try fried beans, because maybe they're just as good and we're just wasting time. You don't have to fry them again after all.
