Just wondering what you've all found are good places to buy ultralight fabics. I'm aware of Seattle Fabrics, Quest, and OWF. Any other good ones? Anywhere I can buy fabric with Epic, Quantum, and eVent? What about Schoeller? Thanks.

thru-hiker has epic malibu ... be aware that epic availability does not have steady availability from any retail source.

The others I don't know about.

You also might want to have a look at this thread:
http://www.backpackinglight.com/cgi-bin/backpackinglight/xdpy/forum_thread/1740/index.html

It is for materials in general.

You now have one place now for Epic - Thru-Hiker.

Quest has at least one kind of Schoeller.

Event is not really for sale anyplace except for scrap sometimes.

Pertex Quantum is also not sold retail by the yard.

Read over the link above decide what you want to make and then go with what you can get easy.
