eVent fabric source on 10/11/2013 23:01:22 MDT Print View

Have been looking and can't find a current retail source for eVent fabric. Specifically I'm looking for 3-layer, with the lightest face fabric I can find. Anybody know of a current source? I need probably 3 yds but might go for a little more if I had to.


Whoops - just found some in the most obvious spot - OWF. But heavier than i'd hoped. Any OTHER sources?

wow! That's new. They didn't use to carry it even recently. This is the first time I've ever seen it for sale anywhere except some remnants that BPL sold.

questoutfitters.com has some similar WPB fabrics that are lighter weight but they're not eVent

Yipes, another project.
Any thoughts on what the weight of an XL pullover (no hood) would be with 3.5-3.8 oz material when all frills are left out?

pullover takes maybe 2 square yards?

Yeah, I didn't realize that either. Dang, because I was trying to sell the rest of mine and I am asking too much. I wish I could sew to make myself a jacket.

Hey Paul,
I have some that I purchased from BPL when their shop was having the going out of business sale. It's been a few years and I still haven't used it, so maybe it's time to sell it. I have 5 yards. It's 56" wide and weighs about 2.3 osy. It is 3 layer. The outer fabric is dark gray with black ripstop pattern. The inner face fabric is white. PM me if interested.
