    Very impressed with this fabric so far, another great thing about it is it bonds with 2 layer and 3 layer tape really well so we should hopefully have some seam sealed pack covers out for testing in the next few weeks.

    How about a SilNyl fabric instead? Ligth-weight silicone-elastomer coated nylon fabrics, as used for ultra-light backpacking equipment, and high-grade tent flies in particular, have *way* stronger tear-strenghts than corresponding PU-coated ones.

    I’m unaware of any SilNyl fabrics being available in any camouflage pattern, and hence think that there might be a good market opportunity for camouflaged silnyl fabrics. Military-usable colors do exist, ‘coyote’ brownish and OD at least, but are hard to find. (E.g. Kifaru uses coyote brownish silnyl for their tipis and tarps, and Helsport has used OD silnyl for their tents.)

      The problem is finding demand within the industry for runs in the quantity required to print it. I have looked down this road, and unless someone has some serious coin it’s going to be hard to do.
