I have a question. 

For those who have gotten a blanket from http://www.hookloopoutlet.com/neoprene-sheets--nylon---smooth-skin.html what's your opinion of using this for something completely different.

I'm looking for something with a rubber content to cover outside equipment to keep off rain an rust.  Opinions?

I replaced my original blanket with rubber roofing material. It’s been on there over ten years. Do you have any commercial roofing friends?

LOL, that was 2+ years back.  Oddly enough, the blanket is still holding.  I'll look into roofing material.

I've got to replace my blanket, I think I had a nick in one of my roller frames and it ripped a small hole in it which now is bigger, might look into the pond liner before I place an order for the wetsuit stuff.

I have used a bicycle tire patch kit. It will not hold forever but long enough to get a new blanket.
When you dig grave will you make it shallow so that I can feel the rain?

EPDM roof repair tape is probably great too.  Fire a heat gun on it for a bit maybe?
