    Hey guys,

    I wanted to come on and just quickly introduce a new project my brother and I have been working to get going.

    As gear makers we buy a lot of ripstop from a lot of different places. One of the things that has always bothered us is having to buy more than we need at any given time to feel like we're getting a good deal per yard. This was particularly a problem when we were doing DIY stuff and didn't want to by more than a couple hammock's worth of fabric.

    A couple months ago we did a fire sale on some surplus 1.9 oz blaze orange here on HF. That sale ended up giving us an idea of how we could fix the problem of having to buy in bulk to get wholesale pricing on ripstop. We've started a site that will specialize in ripstop and cater to the DIY guy and hobbyist by offering wholesale prices with NO ORDER MINIMUM. Instead of charging higher prices for small quantities, we keep the prices low by allowing you to purchase X number of yards off a 100-200 yd roll and shipping in bulk when the roll runs out or the sale is over (7-10 days usually). As long as you can wait a few days, you save 20-40% on the ripstop you need for your projects.

    The site is up and running now at www.ripstopbytheroll.com. We only have a couple fabrics listed right now, but we'll be adding more very soon. If you have a minute, check it out and let us know what you think. We'd love to get some feeback, color/fabric suggestions, etc from you all! As always don't hesitate to contact us if you have a question or need anything at all. We're more than happy to chat and help

    Thanks,


    - Kyle

    Awesome! Best of luck to your website, seems a solid idea. These guys and gals will buy it up in no time.
    When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change, you literally create your reality.

    This looks like a good thing and the shipping is reasonable as well. Do you think you might expand into carrying silnylon at some point?

    Sorry about that Nodust. I was doing some maintenance last night. Everything should be fine now.

    I also setup a HF member discount code for everyone. Feel free to use the following at checkout: HFmember10%

    Thanks for your order and let me know if I can help!

    Thanks Mrprez I appreciate it. And yes, silnylon just happens to be next on the list of things to add. Should have it posted within a few weeks.
