    Nov 14, 2005, 1:05 PM - ROTJ cape question ! #1

    Today I was looking through several camping and army stores in my area for the correct shelter half.
    I was pretty excited to find one with the correct stiching, but...

    ...the material had something like a rubbery finish and is nearly black on the inside...

    I know it is the standard shelter used by the austrian army, but I guess this is NOT the right.
    What material is the correct one. Some cotton like, something like jeans ?

    Any help is appreciated here.

    The original was made with a US Army half shelter. Probably different that an Austrian army

    have you seen Brak's tutorial?

    I bet you have

    anyways, the jeans like material you are reffering to is correct, it's called canvas, and it's exactly what you need for a ROTJ cape

    Thanks for the infos. When using Brak´s tutorial with all the meassurments, I wouldn´t even need the tent.

    Do you think I can find the corret material in any fabric store ?
