    Was crusing around freestyle and found they have 2 products called "blackout cloth" one is a 70 denier ripstop fabric with a WHITE! urethane coating the other is a 400 denier witha 3 mil pvc coating. Anybody have any thoughts on its suitability as a bellows material? the one with the white urethane coating doesn't sound good and the pvc may be too brittle for constant folding?

    This, from the color, sounds like drape material, which is very thick compared to bellows cloth
