Re: GoLite poncho tarp
Will, how old is it? Do you know if it is the more recent, lighter model, that I think has a 15D fabric? Pic of the tear would be good too.

Thanks
Thanks for the insights. 1200mm is a fair bit for silnylon, most of them out there would fail at that. Of course its hard to know how accurate that is. Though PU coatings are generally pretty go...
