    Plastic Buckles (Fastex etc.) Source? Webbing source?

    I am making some stuff for my gear and I am wondering if someone has a recommendation about where to buy plastic buckles and webbing on the internet. My local places don't have a whole lot of choice.

    Two that I have used are Reef Scuba (www.reefscuba.com/ropewebbing.htm) for webbing, and REI (www.rei.com) for plastic quick release buckles and triglides. There are quite a few others that carry one or both, I just have recent personal online experience with both of these.

    Most of the online marine parts places carry both, Westmarine comes to mind.

    Seattle Fabrics - Welcome To Seattle Fabrics. We offer marine fabrics and outdoor fabrics such as Neoprene, lycra, sunbrella and more! has lots of the stuff you want. Webbing in many colors, widths, and materials, buckles, and lots of good fabrics for other projects (thinsulate, primaloft, cordura, goretex, neoprene, vinyl, etc).

    They're up there with the scuba department at my local Lowe's for parts :)

    [ack - didn't realize pescador775 deep linked the site. Oh well. Well worth a +1 to those guys]

    Along the same lines, The Rain Shed in Corvallis, Oregon (my home until recently) is a favorite source of mine. Very nice folks, good selection, great service.

    Depending on how much webbing you are looking to buy, Rochford Supply is a great source but it is really geared to folks that buy a bulk 100 yards +, at really inexpensive prices. You can purchase black polypro webbing for about $21 for 100 yards. They require a $50 minimum order.

    I have used Seattle Fabrics as well and I like their selection of colors. Their dive belt webbing is soft at first but over time mine became rather stiff. I think the cloth-like webbing that Dive Rite uses on its harnesses is better but it only comes in black.

    Dive Rite has two kinds of webbing, nylon or polypro.
