    Wilderness logics carries it:

    As does DIY gear supply.

    I'm sure there are still others I've forgotten about.

    Re shock cord.... here's something I was wondering about, so I will post it here rather than start another thread.

    Does it weaken shock cord to be stretched for long periods? For example I have had my hammock hung up in my basement for the last week with the UQ attached below. The shock cord is under some load, although less than when I am in the hammock.

    Does shock cord approach a yield point? IOW, if you stretch it too much the material yields and loses some of its stretch. Does it lose its stretch in very cold temperatures?

    Thanks.
