    found: source for green sil

    I have searched for weeks, ever since reading the thread about sourcing brown or green sil- and the search is over. quest outfitters is now stocking some "dark sage" silnylon.
    it is very close to dark olive green, a shade darker maybe. Since I cant source brown sil, this will do. I was very impressed with the "stealth" color. very impressed.
    here's a pic with sharkskin gray as a guide...

    Didn't see the squares in the green is it ripstop??
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming "WOO-HOO, what a ride!!"

    I didn't think that sil would fray. Good find. Thanks for posting.

    I just ordered 8 yards.

    its 1.3 sil ripstop for sure- the fraying is on the edge, which occurs from the loom. so its not really fraying since i cant pull it apart. I updated the pic... Im going to make a hex tarp out of it

    I'll most likely try my hand at tarp making too. I haven't made one yet, and a cat-cut hex tarp this color would be cool.

    This stuff is pretty much sold out as of today. I put an order in for 16 yards to make two cat cut tarps but they didn't have enough. I settled for 8 yards.

    Now I've gotta keep my eye open at Wally World as I need to make one for the wife too. I never have any luck there.

    Well, glad you got 8 out of it.

    I got 8 for a tarp, and 3 for other "stuff". Hopefully they'll get some more of this.

    Thanks for the update.

    Since it's a second, the manufacturer doesn't actively supply them with it - I'm sure if enough of us got in on it, maybe we could convince them to order a batch of 1sts.....
