    The 30d MARPAT I ordered from them had a printing void but still an excellent deal.

    I've had enough to make several UL hammocks, gear bags, ghillie suit, deer blind, and a camo cover for my truck -- all off of one roll.

    But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed. (Luke 5:16 NIV)

    He said to them, “But now let the one who has a moneybag take it, and likewise a knapsack. And let the one who has no sword sell his cloak and buy one." (Luke 22:36 ESV)

    While people are saying, “There is peace and security,” then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. (1 Thessalonians 5:3 ESV)

    I managed to get in on some ABU 1.1oz ripstop with only a 24yd. quantity, but obviously the shipping of the roll was still quite high so my price shipped was right abotut $2/yd - I don't have enough projects that require regular pure finish ripstop to justify more than 30 yds. I'm sure those who are heavily involved in local outdoor clubs or scouts are making hammocks, UQ covers, stuff sacks, etc. for their local groups, friends, and family. But yeah, 200 yds seems like a LOT to me!

    I'm still waiting on my order from Magna. I sent a couple of emails in early April 2014 - never received any response. Placed an order on April 17. Order was confirmed and card was dinged, but no shipping confirmation. I called the phone number on April 28. Guy (don't recall the name) was apologetic and said that the shipping label printed, but never shipped. He said he'd ship it out "right away" and email the shipping confirmation. Today is May 5. Still nothing.

    I've long since received my orders from Dutch and DIY Supply (placed the same day). I've completed my suspension and winter tarp (out of Argon silnylon). Now I just need my fabric so I can work on my hammock. I'm running out of things to do!

    Did you order through their website or on the phone/email? I've been trying to get an order through for a week on the phone and email. Just wondering if it works to order on the site. Larry told me that the site is not up to date.

    My order took quite a while to process and to ship, and one of the items wasn't actually available (ordered online) any longer (but he substituted with something comparable).
    The site and service leaves much to be desired, but the prices are worth it IMO.

    If the DIY sil concept works for me, I'll have even more uses for all of it...

    To update this thread, I finally received my order from Magna. Apparently, my first order got lost in the mail. Several phone calls and excuses later, we finally got it sorted out and money refunded. Placed a second order and received it in 4 days.

    Lessons learned: (1) Call first to confirm what is in stock - the website is not always up-to-date. (2) Order via email or online. Call a few hours after you order to confirm the order is received and when it will be filled/shipped. (3) Make sure that you ask for the tracking number and call back every day until you get a tracking number. (4) Obviously, be polite. The guy at Magna is reasonable and polite, but sounds like he is extremely overworked and busy. Things may fall through the cracks, but being rude doesn't score you any extra points. (This isn't a "lesson-learned" per se, but just plain old advice.) (5) Don't expect all of the fabric to be usable quality, so order more than you need. When my roll arrived, it looked like it started to come undone a bit while in transit. The first 2 feet or so were quite marked up and ragged. The next yard or two are extremely wrinkled, but otherwise usable.

    Overall impressions: Worth it for the price. I got so much extra that I can experiment on a lot of different projects. Price per yard ends up being so cheap that if I mess something up horrifically, no big deal to scrap it and start over.
