Hi Fmatte:

You might want to look at the ripstop spinnaker cloths illustrated on pages 45 and 46 of our 2006 catalog.  These are pretty much watertight and tear resistant, as well as being light weight.  The down side is that they have a sizing imbedded in the fabric, and they tend to be stiffer than normal "surplus store" ripstop.

I hope thatr this helps.

That depends on what kind of ground that you sleep on more than anything else.  If it is always soft dirt, you can get by with 1.5 ounce cloth and save your back.  Anything harsher would be better served with 4 ounce cloth.

I would check out http://www.owfinc.com/   or more specifically go to http://www.owfinc.com/Fabrics/NylonWoven/Ripstop.asp#Nylon%20Ripstop:%20Coated  .  These guys make fabric for outdoor wilderness uses.  The tend to ship real quickly.  If you ask them via email they'll send you a sample packet with all the nylons, for free....just so you can get an idea of what to get.

Good luck.  Let us know how it goes!

love

I am using a LSZ-1 with a Monster Wheel. Deluxe foot control.

I'm a rope splicer! That's way easier than sewing ;)
