Drop Bag Material Question

Looking to patch up a drop bag that took a beating on the MFS & the Main low water goodness.

What is the DRE/Stitches & Stuff type mesh that everybody uses?
Anyone know a vendor for it?

Also toying with the idea of making some stuff, so I'm looking for a supplier.

Thanks

Have you contacted Jan & Dennis at Stitches 'n Stuff? Good people, and they might be willing to get you just the material.

I think it is called 'trash tarp' and can be found at tent/awning places. However, Jan at Stitches and Stuff has always been great to deal with and would likely help you out as well.

I think it is textilene fabric. An awning place is where I got mine. Petersen Canvas in Fort Collins. They had a ton of scraps that they gave me. Now if I could only get some straps for free...

Jan & Dennis at Stitches 'n Stuff

Been dealing with Jan for a bunch of custom stuff for a while.

Easy to work with, high quality and fast turnaround.

Do not know how good at sewing you are, but Jan is might near perfect and never misses a stitch on the work she has done for me.

Mesh Tarps - Multi Mesh Canopies

I believe this is the same stuff, but you have to purchase a multimesh tarp to get it from them. (Heavy duty stuff, half way down the page). I've not found any retail sources of multimesh. Don't get pfiertex, it doesn't last as long and is just a coated fiber. If you find a retail source of multimesh, let me know!

Phifertex is one option.

Seatle Fabrics carries most any outdoor fabric you can find. Most of the bags I've seen are made of 'textilene' or 'pifertex' fabric.

Mesh for Clothing, Bags, Screening and more!

Great mail order service, very helpful.Also a good source for webbing, cam buckles, heavy duty thread and other hardware.

Thanks for the link! Didn't see any straps/buckles on the site, am I missing something? Or is it just in their paper catalog?
