Is there anyone out there with source on Average Green webbing OR and actual Olive Drab that matches OD Cordura? It needs to be 55301 (or 43668) and available in 1" and 1.5". It seems that every OD webbing I try, looks too brown next to the Cordura. I want to start making OD gear, but this is a major hold up.

They have overruns of Narricot, now AEC, webbing.  They did offer CAG last I checked.

They only have 17337. I did get one roll of 1.5" and 1" but it's more of a ranger green than a CAG. I'm actually going to put it up for sale. It's good if you want ranger 17337.

I'll check with Lincoln to see if they have a partner narrow fabric manufacturer.

I sent an email to IFAI and no reply. I talked to Kelly at Lincoln and she's looking into it. I just can't believe I can't find a good green colour webbing.

I'll be interested in your final results here.  I've never been able to get consistent green colors of OD webbing in small quantities.  Even from the same sources different orders have different shades or are not available from time to time.  I have about 5 rolls of 5038 and 17337 that are all different shades.  A reliable consistent source would be great.

I saw a video from strap works that said that they will do color matching how ever there pricing is through the roof but for larger ordering pricing may be a lot better.

I talked to Texcel and they are open to doing a green colour matched 55301 webbing. It's a 5000 yd min per size.

1" $0.3095/yd
1.5" $0.4095/yd

Anyone interested in a group buy?

The hunt for consistent OD green continues. No luck so far. Whoever the dude is who made this has some pretty good OD:

I think that is a rig from Kennedy Nylon. He's on Facebook.

I've sent him an email. In the mean time, I've managed to source some actual CAG webbing from some companies that produced gear for the CAF. The plus is that the colour will look good and it's already in Canada!
