    Might call Frogg Toggs and see if they'll tell you where they get it from. If you can get anything less than a forklift-sized roll, definitely post it here!
    JJ, et al,

    We have posted this before but as an update... The company that actually manufactured the 2 ply Microporous Poly was sold over a year ago... The machinery was dismantled and shipped to China.... that is why it is almost impossible to get the tan DriDucts rain suits any more also (Gossamer Gear still has a few on a discontinued item sale if any one is interested).

    We are working on some alternative approaches for a Weather Shield Type II... Don't expect any real info on the revised version until at least Spring of 08.

    Did a search on polypro surgical drapes... Lots of references so far, none that seem aimed at retail (or even online business sales.)
