    Having trouble locating fabric listed below

    Having trouble locating fabric listed below

    Hammock; 4yrds Ripstop nylon 1.9oz sq yrd. No coating in

    Tarp; 8 yards 1.3 silnylon or 1.1 uncoated (for DIY silnylon) Digital camo, US Air Force, or ACU

    Noseeum netting; 4 yards in black or gray.

    I can find these items individually at decent prices but not all in one place.

    Anyone know a vender that caries all of these.

    Also I'm 150-170 pounds is 1.5 ripstop ok to use for a durable hammock?

    Scott of backwoods daydreamer has a good selection and is a joy to do business with. I don't know if he has the camo pattern you want, but has a great deal on sil and uncoated fabric and all the trimmings you'll need...the link: http://www.DIYGEARSUPPLY.com/

    +1 on Backwoodsdaydreamer. Not sure if he has 1.9 fabric, but I am finishing a 1.1 double layer... very comfortable fabrics at great prices.

    Quest outfitters has everything you need, but you can't beat BWDD for service and price.

    Both vendors mentioned should have the materials. You might also try quest outfitters.

    I weigh about the same and have use 1.1 sil in a hammock. It will stretch more than the 1.9, but many have used it successfully.

    Tree to tree trail gear also has 1.9 oz uncoated ripstop.

    Thru-hiker also is a source for some of the other fabrics.
