Tarps made out of cordura material

I'm looking to buy a new set of tarps and I saw on the Internet lightweight tarps made out of cordura material. The manufacturer's website claim they are more tear resistant and lighter. My question is are they really waterproof? Are they worth paying extra few bucks for?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

I have some that are the airbag material and I like them. Not sure if its the material you described. They will rip easy if you don't use padding. They won't rip on lumber or normal steel loads but watch out with machinery.

Yep, that's the material. Are they completely waterproof?

The ones I had was far from being waterproof so much so I sent them back and got my money back. I will say this they were lite and guaranteed them they were waterproof and proved them wrong.

Cordura is the fabric that comes as sides on light weight lumber tarps and is not water proof. There are also tarps made from cordura which are coated on the under side and those are water proof - you can find full lumber tarps on ebay cheap - but they will cut just like anything else on steel.

Non-coated cordura tarps http://item.mobileweb.ebay.com/viewitem?...

To prevent cutting the tarp stop (iirc) sells felt that is almost the size of a tarp, light weight and won't cut - goes under the tarp.

The one that I'm looking claims it has weatherproof coating on the inside and water repellent on the outside

I've got a small one like that for a smoke tarp and it is nice and light but when it's cold the sucker gets stiff.

ive been using cordura tarps for the better part of 8 years, i get them direct from the manufacturer and they are usually custom cut to my needs and ive never had a wet load or damage claim due to water on the load

they are more durable than vinyl and considerable lighter..thew above comments saying the tear easy on machinery, i properly prepare my loads for transport and also secure the tarp properly so i dont have these problems..

i can privately pass on the the info of the place i get mine made at if anyone is intrested
