May 30, 2023

Category: Customer Spotlight, Outdoor Gear

Our insulation is chosen by the best brands in the world to develop products for outdoor athletes and uniformed service men and women. You can find it in Arc’teryx LEAF tactical jackets and Eddie Bauer’s award-winning sleeping bags, but you might not know it’s available outside of ordering direct from us. Whether you want to sew a personalized insulated quilt or start a new business, small orders are available through our trusted distributors.

DutchWare Gear

Based out of Lancaster, Pennsylvania, DutchWare Gear specializes in “all things hammocks, from do-it-yourself (DIY) hammock camping gear and accessories to quilts and suspension hardware, as well as DIY backpacking gear.” Despite its international name (hailing not from the Netherlands but from the founder’s nickname), DutchWare Gear is made in America with American materials. Three weights of Climashield® APEX are available for domestic and worldwide shipping.

Outdoor Wilderness Fabrics, Inc.

Realizing that it was nearly impossible for individuals and small companies to purchase small amounts of outdoor fabrics, Ray and Betty Levis started their business in 1981. With nothing more than a few rolls of material that were cut on the kitchen table, the Levises embarked on an adventure that became Outdoor Wilderness Fabrics, Inc. Now operated by their daughter, the company offers a wide variety of fabrics, hardware, and insulation, including three types of Climashield®. Domestic orders are shipped within 2-3 business days.

RipStop By the Roll 

RipStop by the Roll is a company run “for makers by makers,” supplying high-end fabric and materials for the most discerning DIYers in the word, as well as outdoor industry start-ups. Offering digital print and laser cut services, RipStop By the Roll has everything you might need to bring even the most ambitious project to life – including advice and guidance from the passionate team. In addition, every year the company offers a number of Maker Sponsorships, providing support for the most interesting individual projects.
