View Full Version : Infrared signature of Kifaru paracloth?

I heard somewhere the other day(can't remember the source) that paraglider fabric nearly glows in the dark for a viewer using the infrared spectrum. Since Kifaru uses paraglider fabric(I believe), I am curious about the infrared signature of the shelters, in the event that it might someday matter. Anybody have a clue about this?

I'm thinking my recently acquired white 8 man with smoke coming out of the smoke stack is going to scream "come and get me".... :-)

I bet. I was thinking more along the lines of a brown parahootch, though. More of a 'low-profile' setup than yours, I think!;-)
