70E Elastic Webbing
« on: February 20, 2018, 01:25:53 PM »
I'm curious to see where people are buying their polyester elastic webbing. I need rolls of ranger green in 1" and 1.5".

AND does anyone know if there is MultiCam elastic with the same look/feel as the 70E stuff?

For reference, this is the type of elastic: https://www.geardynamics.ca/products/elastic-keepers

We use GSI 70E elastic. We used their camo green elastic for a ranger green project and it looked fine!

Please pardon my ignorance...  is 70E a spec?  A part number?  Is there more than one mill manufacturing it?

No idea. It seems that many suppliers stock "70E" polyester elastic webbing...

I recently discovered that GSI's nylon elastic is cheaper than the equivalent 70E. Seems sturdier too.

Which elastic from GSI. They have 70E Polyester and Milspec 5664 nylon. I prefer the woven polyester, as it's thicker feeling and seems tougher.

To clarify - we use the 5664 nylon elastic from GSI instead of their 70E.

Bootcat, can you show me a product that uses the 5664. Found your shotgun cards, and they look like woven 70E: https://www.tigertailor.com/shop/fr/poches/182-shotcard-porte-cartouches-calibre-12.html

The Shotcard in the pic used type 70E. I don't think we have a picture of 5664. It's very similar to the style that Texcel used to carry if that helps.

Is 70E the elastic that tears apart when it's close to loop? If so, I'm not a fan of it.

I've bought the mil spec MIL-W-5664 elastic by the roll from KWWebbing.com in Rhode Island
