Construction material Q

I've been a fan and user of the GL Coyote since its introduction. I've owned both the original bombrpoof Cordura model with tiny zippers

and then the upgrade to the model made from Truckers Tarp and the long zipper.

and they always stood up to solid abuse. To me they were the best product out there for this type of use. I just landed back in the states and before leaving sold my old Coyote to a friend that needed it. I was ready to pick up another Coyote and then heard from a friend that also uses the Coyote. He saw the new 2013 model Coyote and claimed that the new material that is being utilized feels quite thin and flimsy in comparison to the prior model (truckers tarp) Coyotes material. My love for the Coyote is due to how bombproof they are and now have concern based on the observations of a riding bud. Can you please give me an insight and specs into the new construction material that is being used on the Coyote? Thanks heaps!!
