    I would check with Claude Sinclair. He makes quality ones.

    Frankly, I would just buy one from Jan Berger at Lederarsenal and be done with it, you can't beat the quality or service versus the effort in trying to make one.

    Don't think of it as keeping dry.
    Think of it as keeping less wet.

    You can not go wrong with Claude's work. Top quality and made to last. I own two of his oil cloths. You can contact him through facebook. Worth every penny.

    Are you wanting a Federal or Confederate painted cloth? If you are seeking Confederate I have one listed in the sutler page.

    It rains at events? What is this wet of which you speak.

    Roll with the wet. You'll dry, so will your stuff. Heck, I dry every morning after I shower.

    Watch the "nets" there's good used stuff popping up all of the time. If I had to by one, I'd pick Sinclair or Sekela. Your mileage might vary.

    The 137th NY performed way, way better than the 20th Maine at Gettysburg. They just didn't have a self promoting blow hard of a Col. leading them.
