What You Are Getting:
This is a listing for 30D, Silicone-impregnated Ripstop Nylon (Silnylon), which is PERFECT for ultralight tents, rainflys, tarps, groundcloths, you name it. People are even making backpacks out of this fabric. The weight is 1.1 ounce/square yard before silicone treatment and 1.3+ ounces per square yard after treatment.
NOTE: This is being offered per foot not per yard. Fabric is usually sold per yard, but I am offering it per foot to give you more flexibility when ordering.
It is waterproof, and extremely light, This fabric is impregnated with silicone, not simply coated on one side. That means it has been completely soaked with silicone, which makes it the same on both sides. Silicone is very hydrophobic, so the water rolls right off. Coated fabrics generally soak up water on the uncoated side, which makes them much heavier to carry when wet. With silnylon, the water beads up and rolls off ... never soaks in.
I bought a large roll of this fabric, which I've measured at 65" wide. I don't need all of it, so I can cut a piece to any length you like. The price is $1.85 for each foot cut off the 65-inch roll.

Bonus: Free ultralight backpacking article!!All orders will receive a free articleI wrote on ultralight backpacking. You will learn how some people are hiking *very* long distances with total pack weights ofless than 9 pounds!! (Before adding the food and water).
It's amazing how much better it feels to move through the wilderness with an ultralight pack ... it feels like a bookbag. You are much more free to move around and explore your surroundings, go off-trail, do whatever you want.
With a heavy pack, you plod ahead on the trail with your head down, grunting though the workload. With an ultralight pack, your head is up, your breathing is normal, and your step is much lighter.
And it doesn't have to be expensive!!! Most of the ultralight equipment is less expensive than the heavy stuff, and is so much more enjoyable.My article even links to websites showing you how to make your own gear. I also include some professional drawings for my own designs -- backpack and sleeping quilt.

Why You Should Purchase From Me:I'm honest, hardworking, and ship fast. I've been addicted to backpacking for more than 25 years now, and in the past several years, I've begun to explore ultralight alternatives. Silnylon is what I use for tarps, stuff-sacks, parts of my backpack, etc. This stuff is great!!
