    Looking for this color of fabric-- any ideas?

    I saw this pic http://i197.photobucket.com/albums/a...2/DSC01063.jpg and liked the color of the fabric.... It was made by Adam @ hammockgear--- he called it coyote brown... He no longer has that color-- but said if i come accross some-- he can make me up a quilt with it.. Anyone have any ideas where i could find it? Some of the coyote browns i have seen are a bit dark and not as "gold".. The hunt starts

    ps--- i plan to use this for a underquilt--- so looking for a fabric that can breath and yet shed some water.. The momentum90 stuff looked good-- but i cant find a pic of their coyote brown..

    you can get it here: http://www.diygearsupply.com/cgi-bin/shelf.cgi?numb=17
    and they sell it in "downproof" so perfect for a quilt.

    Aztech that fabric the exact same that was used in the pic-- so great eye... Only problem is no DWR coating with it.. With a underquilt my worry is water kicking up into it-- so water resistance is of course top priority.. My hope is to find another mfg'r with a similar color that has a DWR coating on it..

    Scroll to the bottom http://www.therainshed.com/UnctdRipstop.htm

    I bet the stuff Scott has is the same...

    How about thru-hiker's momentum???

    Wait, which are you looking for? Coyote brown or that camo?

    I found this. Super cheap. And in a pinch, you could just spray it with some off the shelf waterproofer. Maybe too heavy for you, but hey, you could spray down the stuff from BWDD too. That may be a way to get what you want.
