Coated Ripstop Nylon / Fabric Material
« on: April 04, 2010 »

Just a quick question, I'm looking for a roll of Coated Ripstop Nylon to make a replacment tent bag and a few other pouches. There are loads of places in the US, I am just wondering if anyone knows anywhere over here who sells anything similar to the pic below.

I got my wife to look at stuff in a fabric shop in Kilroot Business Park.

It was the very stuff to make tarps and other lightweight camping stuff with.

Unfortunately, it was far too dear. It was far cheaper to buy a tarp then to get the material and make one. (If memory serves me correctly, it was £10 per metre)

Hope this helps you.

Hi mate, if you check out eBay they have a large selection of tarps and material as good prices you should be able to source someting on there to suit. I was looking for a tarp and they are doing 5x3 metre camo ones for 19.99 posted.

Guy's that is excellent thanks so much for the help.  Belfastman1958, cheers for the info I will be in that neck of the woods later in the week so I will call in. The EBay lead is also useful, as that would provide a lot of material at a reasonable price.

Thanks Matthew
