Source for 5" elastic webbing?
« on: February 05, 2015, 11:32:54 PM »
Anyone got a good source for 5" elastic webbing in the usual military colours? Preferably the tougher polyester stuff.

Thanks.

I can post some pictures when it comes to Denmark in 2-3 weeks.

Yes. I too would love to see some pics. I've determined that 4" would be OK too. What is the price point like? Do I need to buy large rolls of it?

I have found 4" to work very well on my Pistol Quick Mag Pouches and my Rifle Quick Mag Pouches and it seems easier to source than the wider versions I have been getting mine from GSI thus far although I'm waiting to hear back from Textile Network to see what they can do for me.  I have some 6" in black and ranger Green that I am testing with Hypalon as a chest rig and it works well too it's just harder to find small quantities such as one roll.

I just talked to Pam at Textile Network and it sounds very promising. She was customer orientated and extremely helpful. Samples are inbound.

I guess I'll have to call her tomorrow when I get time.  I sent her an e-mail the other day and did not get a response.

Yeah, I just got off the phone with Pam and she was obviously frazzled.  She says she is just super busy and they are completely slammed.  She got my e-mails but just hasn't had time to answer them because she's so swamped on the incoming phone calls.  She's going to call me back to me as soon as she can.  When she does I'll let you guys know what she says.  If anyone else hears back in detail from her first let us know the score.

UPDATE:

Textile Network finally sent some samples. I had to pay for the shipping. These are Nylon EW041 1" and 4" in Tan 499, Black and Coyote Brown. This stuff is thicker feeling than what I'm after, but it's pretty good.

Woven or knits?
In my experience knits tend to wear out really fast if it's in contact with hook.

These ones are woven. I'd really like to source the polyester stuff that Rockywoods sells. If someone knows the mill, let me know.
