Lapplandicranger-

B&A is good to go. THe green 483 is one of my favorite colors. It has a slightly stiff hand (really depends on the mills on that one). The Coyote Tan, and Coyote 483 (brown), are a little bit softer. If you guys use any type of lamination proccess (glue, etc.) you can solve this problem. My .02, as i like my cordura stiff. I will admit though, the OD (plain OD) that i have from them is REALLY soft (feels like 300-500 Denier)! Others may have had different experiences though. The military line that they carry on the website has a stiff hand though- highly recomend it. Speaking of sources, here's 2 great sources for Cordura Nylon:

www.brookwoodcos.com
-They carry an exstensive color line of 500-1000 denier cordura nylon (they actually carry everything- packloth, and a whole bunch of other crap). Problem is that the hand is really soft. Good for anyone who wants to add cordura to modify any BDU's. No minimums except for a small charge if the cut is less than a certaint amount (5 yrds??)

www.competitiontextiles.com
-My favorite supplier! They carry pretty much all your fabric needs, plus they laminate cordura with a foam (like how eagle does with the camelbak line). What i like is that the cordura line is REALLY stiff! The only problem is that they only sell by the 50 yrd. bolt. (if any one wants to do a group buy, let me know..)
