Concept, design, and engineering / Re: 500D PALS
« on: October 13, 2017, 03:34:19 PM »
do you have any .5" tri-glides or .5" common loop? do you know the trick on how to use said tri-glide or loop as a folder for pals, if not i can do a how to.

This....How...Why have I never thought of that?  I would love to see a how-to on it.

for sure, ill do a quick vid tomorrow using a 1" tri-glide.

sorry to bring up an old thread, but even if you don't have a video, can you describe this process?  Thanks!

Materials science / Cordura brand vs westridge
« on: April 01, 2016, 11:28:19 AM »
I tried to search but not much came up.  I know there are different manufacturers of fabrics and whatnot, but I was curious if there was a difference in quality or product between cordura brand and westridge brand of nylon.  I have samples of the westridge and it doesnt seem too much different but wondering if anyone has experience with its quality or lack thereof.  Its only 5cents more per yard of cordura brand (and its solution dyed) so I figure its not much more expensive even if the quality is the same. 

Also, is there a difference between solution dyed and piece dyed fabrics?  I figure solution dyed is higher quality and more consistent but just curious.

I just got a quote from Brookwoods and the price for 500D is now $10.75 per yard with a $10 cut fee.  Full rolls are 75 yards at $9.65

I emailed them again about purchasing without the resale tax exemption but they havent responded.  I'd like to get full rolls of size 5, 8 and 10 but don't want to pay double the price to get it by the yard from rockywoods.  I dont know of any other supplier that carries ykk zippers.

I have been searching for a source for a roll of 500D as well.  MMI textiles sells rolls in certain colors, I believe they dont have multicam anymore.

GSI sells shock cord, but I believe only approx 500ft rolls minimum.  john howard does as well but requires large minimums.

I contacted YKK and the rep I talked with said you need a resale tax exemption certificate or they wont be able to do business with you.  I know rockywoods sells by the yard but its much cheaper to buy a full roll.  Does anyone know a source for YKK zippers in tan499?  GSI only carries ideal and only size 9 and maybe 5.  PK only has black and limited colors.  Thanks guys
