    Looking for Ripstop, 1.1 or similar

    Im going to take on the task of making an 1/2 UQ and I need one of you fine folks to dig in yer gear closet to look for about 3 yards of 1.1 Ripstop. If anyone has a few yards of ripstop, momentum, taffetta or similar let me know if you can spare it. I can PayPal some $.
    Im just looking to save over the retailers' $6-7 a yard pricing!

    color is kinda important, and by that I mean i dont want hot pink or baby blue.
    thanks fellas

    Ripstop

    Any particular color you're looking for? I have some green (2 yds?), some grey (11 yds), some maroonish color (7yds), and some white (1 yd). Have to check amounts, but I'm sure I can spare some for you.

    I also have some regular nylon, extremely lightweight (not sure on the exact weight) brown (9yds) and some grey (9yds), some flag nylon in black, and a bunch of other assorted fabrics - some poly, some unidentifiable walmart coated mystery fabric that is totally waterproof.... , etc.

    the green sounds great but I think i'll need 3 yards (at least 48" wide also) of ripstop. Id prefer a stealth color. Is the BROWN coated with DWR or a calendared side?

    Let me look at it tonight - the green is NOT coated, I'm not sure on the plain brown nylon, or the gray. The maroonish color IS coated, that I'm sure of.

    I forgot, I also have some HI-VIS yellow COATED ripstop (6 yds), and some baby blue COATED ripstop (7 yds) too, but I guess those won't work for you, huh? I don't know what I'm going to use those for, but at $1 / yard, I couldn't pass it up. It's a disease.

    P.S. - if you PM me your address, I'll just send you what I can spare, no charge. Glad to help. Something about beggars and choosing applies here, though. I'll PM you when I know what I'm sending.
