    Blaze Orange Ripstop

    I'm looking for about 4 yards of 1.1 (or so) ripstop for a "LOUD" hammock. If anyone has some they want to get rid of, let me know.

    Thanks,
    Caveman

    Not just "LOUD" but Hunter Season Friendly

    Try Joanne Fabrics and you should be able to locate a 40% or 50% off 1 item coupon

    http://www.joann.com/rip-stop-nylon/xprd560961/

    I believe this is 1.9oz listed at 64GSM


    here's the coupon 40% off so about 3/yd 12.00 for hammock body

    Outdoor Wilderness Fabrics has an orange (looks a little dimmer than "Blaze", but it's still pretty bright) 1.9 oz/sq yd ripstop in stock for $5.38/running yard before shipping (look under the "Ripstop Breathable" tab). I've found their listed weights to be accurate, and their customer service is wonderful.

    Hope it helps!

    There's a Joanns not too far from me. I would prefer something lighter, but I may have to settle. I'll keep looking around.

    ...ZQ here...The 1.9 at JoAnn's isn't a very soft nylon. The 1.9 at Outdoor Wilderness Fabrics is a much softer fabric...it feels lighter. The JoAnn 1.9 has a bit of a crunchy feeling.

    I made a very large "don't shoot me" hammock sock in blaze orange poly fabric (not ripstop) but it should hold for a hammock. Got the fabric at WMT. Was also pretty cheap at around $2.00/yd in 60" width.

    Thanks for the input. I'm going to keep looking. I really want something lighter than 1.9.

    Anybody around you sell hot air balloons? They might be a source. Ditto serious kite shops.
