Does anyone know where to get waterproof spinnaker cloth from? Thanks!
Perhaps email the nice folks at Gossamer Gear and see if they'll sell you their 0.99 oz./yd² spinnaker for DIY projects? I would be surprised if they wouldn't.Other than that, I think kitebuilder.com sells spinnaker but not I believe that not all spinnaker is create equal and depending on your intended purpose other materials may not be sufficiently waterproof.

Thru-Hiker is still out of stock :(
Evan Rockywoods.com sells the cloth you are lookinf also.

Frederick, Do have a link to the right page. I looked there a while ago and did not see it there either. I too have been looking for some.
Ken if you scroll down, on their home page, until you find ultra lightweight fabrics. They sell Ultra-Sil Silicone Ripstop Nylon Fabric. It is double coated, wider, and lighter than sil nylon
Ultra-sil is silnylon.
Spinnaker is polyester.
Evan - Prolite Gear carries the same spinnaker that Gossamer Gear uses for their products
Yeah, thruhiker and prolite gear are both out of stock. I guess I will send gossamer an e-mail and see what they say. I'm looking for something waterproof. I would like to make a tarp...
Emailed GG ages ago about selling spinnaker cloth. Nein.
However, 'UltraSil' may be less waterproof than 'silnylon'.Cheers
