#5 Red Separating Water Resistant Coil? on 03/28/2013 12:33:02 MDT Print View

I've searched around but have had no luck finding it. I'm looking for #5 one way separating water resistant at a length around 18". Seached Seattle Fabric, Quest, Rockywoods, Ebay, Amazon, google. Anyone know of anything like this existing?

Thanks,
Jon

Thanks Jerry,

Checked those as well, key is finding the Red coil color, I can obviously do black with a red zipper pull, but I'm looking for Red coil. I know a number of manufactures use them on packs (although most are #8 zippers) I was hoping I could be picky and obtain a #5 Red water resistant.

Thanks for the response.

Most distributors go for black. You need to find a manufacturer. They can do custom colours - which is what the pack makers have done.

Thanks everyone. I was afraid of that, how many manufacturers do you think will bend over backwards for a 16" long red coil? Doubtful :/ I may end up trying to find a cheap bag on ebay and rip the zipper out if it comes down to it. Thanks everyone for their contributions.
