    X-Pac Expedition

    Does anyone know any good sources for X-Pac Expedition fabric? In particular the VX07 in red. I am wanting to make my own pack but the only suppliers I've found are DIYGearSupply and Rockywoods and they're both out.

    I searched and found this thread: http://www.hammockforums.net/forum/s...ad.php?t=29104

    Does any know where they found such a good deal ($3.50/yard)? Even if the fabric was seconds quality that seems to be a great price.

    I even emailed http://www.dimension-polyant.com/en/ and the person who responded wasn't very helpful and didn't really seem interested in helping me find any suppliers since I did not meet their 50 yard minimum order requirement.

    Any insight on this would be very much appreciated! Thanks!

    If memory serves me, silnylon was actually developed for paratroopers and we borrowed it for tarps. Just as cuben fabric was developed for sails and we borrowed that too.
