I was wondering where you buy your goods for your projects? I am new to this and thought I would ask here instead of wandering all over google.I am looking for quality fabric,webbing,thread,buckles,needles,etc.

Thanks for any info you can pass along.

One giant plus when you shop with Thru-Hiker is that you can rest assured that the item is very very high quality.

FYI: Acye and I work together on sourcing and developing many materials, (Momentum, Spinntex EXP, Dyneema X, etc.) to get the best of the best in a given category and gives great customers service and advice on how to make items.

Check out the helpful how-to forums at Thru-Hiker you don't get that at any other fabric sites. -You get a lot of value added support with your purchase.
