    FYI: 70" Camo Ripstop on Ebay for $3.50

    New70" Woodland Digital Camouflage Ripstop Nylon Fabric

    On ebay for $3.50/yd

    I haven't used these people but know others have. That's cheap esp for that width...

    That's a great price. Buying fabric off ebay is scary though.

    IDK, I think this is the place people have had good luck with. In fact I'm pretty sure I've bought from them before, but I couldn't swear to it...

    Anybody know about these people?

    Sounded familiar to me too (maybe heard it here somewhere?) But I checked, and I haven't bought from them. So I don't know the seller.

    N.B. The ripstop is 1.6 ounces a square yard. Still, I agree it's a good price!

    Or, you could go with this waterproof $3.50/yd. Wowsers.

    Yep, this supplier gets two thumbs up from me.

    Haven't bought this particular fabric, but the black and the regular digicam rock.
    Thinking of making a tarp outta the cam, I believe someone here has used it for just this purpose.
    I dream of a better tomorrow, where chickens can cross the road and not be questioned about their motives.

    They're a good seller. I'll probably be putting in an order for the desert digital camo 1.5 soon.

    It's better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it.

    Formerly known as Acercanto, my trail name is MacGuyver to some, and Pucker Factor to others.

    3.50 is cheap, but with the 4.99 for one yard and $1 each for all the other yards shipping, its not better deal then joanns. I can get it on sale from joanns for $4 a yd.

    I haven't found 70" wide ripstop at Joanns. Their website doesn't even have camo ripstop.
