WHERE TO BUY STUFF:
Here are some recommended places to get goods, further down the page is a list based on good types:
<www.geraldschwartzinc.com> Great place for mil webbing, zippers, elastic, velcro, and plastic hardware. Most items need to be purchased in bulk, however can sell hardware in singles.
<www.lowyusa.com> Solid company with a large item selection. Items include webbing, zippers, plastic hardware, thread, elastics, velcro, para-gear, mesh and more.
<www.paragear.com> Well known store specializing in parachute related items, thus carry many mil-gear making items such as webbing, and hardware. Zippers and Velcro are also carried, however in non-mil colors. They sell both small and large quantities.
<www.owfinc.com> Great store carrying about everything you'd need to make outdoor gear. Don't always have mil-colors, but great selection and do small and large orders.
<www.supplycaptain.com> Known on ebay as emmado22, A great store for getting commonly needed mil items that are not so common to find. Some gear making materials include 550 cord, shock cord, velcro, cord locks, ITW nexus plastic hardware, and more. Prices catering to small and medium sized orders.
<www.tnwebbing.com> A well established company specializing in webbing, but also sells hook and loop (velcro). Known for low prices, but also varied quality.
<www.downeastinc.com> Makers of the unique MOLLE plastic hardware and more. Be sure and check out their Packframe and Buckle sections. Bulk Order only from what I can tell.
<www.plastic-buckle.com> Not all items are particularly mil-spec or color, but a great selection of plastic hardware, snaps, grommets, etc.
<www.cryeprecision.com> If you want Multicam camo, this is the only place to get it. If you get it from somewhere else, you are probably paying too much.
