What are your thoughts on using tyvek for the floor material of an inner net tent, "nest", of a 'mid shelter? I've been thinking about it, and I don't see how a silnylon floor would last very long camping in desert conditions. I mean, the ground is rough and abrasive, and covered in all kinds of pointy plants. Tyvek is cheaper, less slippery, and potentially more durable (??), and most importantly- cheaper. Cheaper is great, because if the floor ends up trashed, it wouldn't be that big of a deal to rip it out and sew a new one in.
edit- I just realized I posted in the "Gear" forum, when it should have gone in the myog forum... oops...
