Never heard of Magna Fabrics until today in another thread on HF.
Ordered 200 yards of rip stop nylon from Magna Fabrics this morning at 0530
ACU Digital. It says 40 denier, 1.6 oz/yd. $.59/yd. , Even if it's not exactly
what I'm looking for, but it's still inexpensive and will work for a hammock building project for a bunch of Boy Scouts. $50+/- to ship from NY to LA home delivery. FedEx shipping is always expensive.
Just got email, already shipped.
I'll post a "review" when it arrives

I ordered the same roll from Magna for a boy scout project a few months ago. Other than random places it's cut, and the fact that it's more like 1.9 oz/yd. it's a very nice fabric. You'll enjoy it.

I ordered some stuff from Breymans roll (thanks again) made one for a buddy and just finishing mine, i think its the most comfortable hammock I have made. You will like it.

Great information guys. This is what I was looking to hear. We will hopefully be doing the same thing for our Scouts.

Since you're fairly close, you're certainly welcome to come on down to the workshop and see this fabric first hand. Let me know.

A good deal haven't found any bad spots in the 259 yards I bought so far. Same shipping regardless of amount purchased and that roll was heavy.
