They advertised them in Gear Deals for $11.50 about a month ago, so about $3.00 less. Either price is a terrific deal and will make great gifts for friends. Think I paid $20 a few months ago. Ryan

Re: Re: Impressed
Something isnt adding up with that fabric. That would be light for an uncoated 10d nylon much less a 20d coated nylon. Just for reference, Ripstopbytheroll's 20d silnylon is 43gsm and has a 150...
