- Apr 7, 2009try ebay <http://stores.ebay.com/Cloth-Plus-Fabrics> some Supplex Nylon WPB DWR 60" wide for $1.25 yard 6 yards should be more than enough and much less than 50.00 and if you negotiate for lower shipping you should be less than 25.00 for a ruffly 9x10ft b4 hemming.

REI sells Polyurethane- treated ripstop nylon rainfly called the ENO DryFly Rainfly. it sells for 79.99. how is this material different from the silnylon i have heard people rave about. is one better than the other and why? i definately will not spend more than 50 bucks for a rainfly... even that seems excessive when you can get along with a 9 dollar blue tarp ( even if it is heavier and bulkier) does anyone have a good suggestion for a good rainfly.. and no i don't think i'm going to attempt to make this one item.. even if i am up for making my own gear 90% of the time.
