Speaking of tyvek, I noticed last night while reading some kite lit' that the tyvek was mentioned as being waterproof and light they were using. Apparently tyvek comes in a multitude of types <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif" alt="" /> Just have to find the right one for your needs <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" />

Yep. Think of "Tyvek" as a word like "Nylon". You wouldn't walk into a shop and just ask for Nylon. Tyvek has been around a long time. The first time I saw it was when I took apart a 5-1/2" floppy disk - the sleeve is lined with Tyvek. This was quite different from the Tyvek that showed up in FedEx envelopes, which is different from the Tyvek used to wrap houses.
