source for good 1.5" scuba webbing
« on: June 12, 2015, 11:38:46 PM »
Does anyone have a good source for 1.5" scuba webbing in both black and coyote brown/just plain tan?

I've bought from strapworks.com before, and am not impressed with the level of resin impregnation they have, or their limited size and color selection.

I have bought from x-concealment before, and their webbing is top notch.  It's rigid, tough, and the color is right on.  Their prices are a little higher than I would like to pay, and they have a high minimum (50 yards).  Their shipping rates aren't great from amazon.com for the smaller quantities either.

I'm looking to make 1.5 inch double layered cobra belts out of this.

Thanks for any help or consideration,
Chuck

Check GSI. I wouldn't call it scuba webbing (it's better quality), more of a rigid belt webbing. They have one called 4015 which I've used to make gun belts, and they have another called 4050 which is a different weave (Type 13 construction), and a little slicker. Both are (or were, the last time I checked) available in black, coyote brown, tan and grey. The colours are a little off on the samples I have, when compared to the Texcel webbing colours, but they are good enough.

MOQ is 100yds per colour and I think the 4015 was $1.36/yd and the 4050 was $1.10/yd.

I just looked at:

and I didn't see the spec numbers you provided.  Am I looking in the wrong place?

You'll need to call or email them. It's not on the site. If you like, I can sell you some yardage of the black that I have here so you can test it out. The samples they send are only 8" or so, and they won't sell cut yardage, only full rolls.

You might try John Howard Company out of Chino California.
I got a roll of 2" domestic scuba type webbing last year. They will send a sample if needed.

Hi, have you found a good source where to buy the webbing and willing to share? I also need it to make several belts to my friends and family when we are on the range. Most are not happy with their belts due to sizes and I can make them some in exchange for ammo and what not. XD I need it stiff and did not find any on ebay.

Update:  I ended up going with the GSI brand webbing for 1.5 and 2 inch rigid webbing.  I am very satisfied with the quality, price, and customer service.  I highly recommend GSI.
