    30D 1.1 oz RipStop

    I know that there have been issues with MagnaFabrics in the past however they seem to be selling full rolls of varying length online for a decent price (~$1.80/yard including shipping). I was looking at a 1.1 30D ACU ripstop and wanted to make it into a double layer hammock and use for stuff sacks. Any idea if 1.1 30d will hold up to that? anyone test out their fabric?

    Here is a link: http://store.magnafabrics.com/produc...&product=13988

    Thanks!!!

    21.09 for shipping! But it's still less than 2 bucks a yard.

    its a lot for shipping but if you figure that if I were to buy the 30Yard roll at $37.50 with shipping to NY at 16.67 totaling 54.17 that comes out to $1.81 per yard including shipping which is really great compared to what else is being offered online.

    That's for a 30 yard roll and yeah looks like a good deal. They don't say it is second quality but do say there maybe imperfections in the print pattern. I have no experience with this company though.

    Avi, let me know how this goes. I, too, am interested in getting some camo fabric from them. I agree, the shipping is not cheap, but the overall price is still pretty good. I saw where the 1.1 material is 68" wide which might make for a nice hammock.

    yeah looks like they got several rolls of it on there. I think one of them was 125yards maybe a groupd buy is in order.
