Coated packcloth, used on the bottom of a Vaude Rock Ultralight Comfort 25. I like the durability--has held up to 3 years daily around town use with little wear. Considering it for MYOG pack project. Anyone know brand name or source?

Thanks Newton--should have thought to look at Vaude specs. Looks like there's a couple places that sell 400 D coated diamond ripstop, but no 210 D.

I purchased the Tan double ripstop fabric from rocky woods it not the same fabric in the photo. I was not real happy with the tan fabric 210 double ripstop it has some kind of reflective thread woven in the ripstop part of the fabric. I was told by rocky woods the U.S. military used it for tents,tarps,covers for vehicles. I think the tread is way to reflect the sun rays away in the the hot Iraq sun.
