    M50 Ripstop

    Does anyone know where to locate M50 ripstop fabric without ordering 1000m roll from China?

    If that is the only way, then perhaps a seriously large group buy might be an option, but I'd prefer to get my hands a few yards first to test with.

    Nope, that is non-ripstop M50, I'm looking for ripstop material in the same weight.

    I guess it would be best put that I'm looking for 10 denier non-coated ripstop.

    I think I've found a source in USA for ordering the 10 denier ripstop fabric. They state it to be .75oz ripstop nylon which should put it at approximately the correct weight. I'm not 100% sure though, so I will be putting in an order for a few yards to see what it is that they have and if it would work for my purpose.

    Figured I would share this information with anyone else that is also looking for similar lightweight materials.

    This site is maybe what you are looking for, I'm not sure. But they do 99c samples, so maybe worth a look.

    That looks like it could be the same material, I'll certainly get a few samples to compare. Thanks.

    What a great website... Thanks. I was looking for some solid graphite for toggles and that site has them. Let us know how the fabric is. Would it be ok for a hammock?
