Does anyone know where to get .9 oz ripstop (Momentum) fabric at this time? I don't like the 2 colors that ThruHiker has in stock.

Ti Goat doesn't carry the trademark "Momentum" fabric. The only two places that sell "Momentum" are Thru-hiker and MLD. They do however sell a strikingly similar product that does not carry the "Momentum" name.

Brad - You are absolutely correct, my bad. As an FYI I believe that OWF is also carrying or will be carrying another "strikingly similar" product. If I remember right there was a discussion on this awhile back and I believe Tim Marshall was doing some testing on the OWF product. I will see if I can find the link.....

I've emailed OWF a few times and never have heard back. I just sent Ti-Goat one about their "Intrepid". I suppose I could ask AYCE at TH if he is going to get restocked on other colors, although he has been out of Spinntex for quite a while and the side forum has been really inactive. Not sure what's up, but figured someone here would have the scoop!

FYI OWF has .9 taffeta in stock and .9 ripstop on the way.

I am using the OWF .9 taff and find it to be something i can use 1 to 1 with m90 and i choose which ever one saves me money when it is time to order. If i am buying down from TH the quilt kit saves me over getting down then the .9 from OWF. If i get down someplace else or just need the fabric i go owf.

I also go owf if i can order 20yds to save on the rest of my order. For me it is all about the $$ since i think the quality is on par.
