I have also used Lowys USA in the past for webbing, tape, hardware, Velcro, and thread.  Small quantities OK, but $50.00 minimum order.
 
Jontay also has webbing, hardware, Velcro, etc.  Small quantities OK but you pay for it.

Supply Captain also has small quantities of hardware, Velcro, cord, etc.  Reasonable prices but limited selection.

I have also dealt with Rocky Woods and OC Tac.  Both are highly recommended.

Texcel is also GTG.

Duro is no longer handling the multicam line.

I have also had positive experiences with:

Para-Gear - Parachute Hardware, Webbing, Tape, Thread - No Minimums
Country Brook Designs - Add a little color to your lives! Tubular Nylon Webbing (I like the metal SRB's) - No-Low minimums
Seattle Fabrics - A little bit of everything, hardware limited and mostly in black
Atwood Rope - Holy shit color and size options!
DJ Associates - More parachute stuff - Some minimums apply
Milspec Monkey - Odds and Ends - Good for small quantity and last minute needs
The Thread Exchange - I mostly use them for non-MilSpec colors and heavier thread
My Tarp - Vinyl Coated Poylester, Clear Vinyl - By the yard, multiple weights
US Plastics - Sheets of High Density Poylethylene 1/32"
Strap Works - Webbing and hardware - No minimums

I am looking for Multicam Arid and Tropic webbing. Has anyone seen this? It is desirable woven webbing, as Murdock. Or I am looking for non-existen stuff?

@ManMarVelez Texcel is who you need to contact. They have said that they are going to produce the new MultiCam colours in their printed webbing line up. They are waiting for the patterns to be approved before they are commercially available.

I contacted Murdock Webbing, I like woven webbing-) But... "The Tropic and Arid are in the very early stages of development and will be for a while.  We will let customer know when these patterns become available. "
I contacted 1947LLC - Texcel dealer, "It is not available yet. Sorry. "
Ok, will work A-TACS FG as spring and summer camo, Murdock have it stock. I didnt like pigmented webbing as Texcel-( Badass view, but too quickly wear out.
I have seen new Warrior Assault, they have changed webbing from Texcel to Murdock.

They also told me that Black is in the final stages.

Great news about Arid-)
Help me, I am looking for fabric, but I dont know fabric name in English. It is very-very soft and low profile wide welcro loop, it is used to lining, pave? backpacks, bags, as ma Hazard4 pack, to put on pouches with welcro hook. It is not ordinary velcro loop in rolls.
Hope,someone or all of you know about.

Velcro made a low profile loop material called "3610"  I've seen it used as a liner in backpacks.
