    Hi whatDoes I live in Australia and I can't find any places that sell waterproof polyester fabric. I loved the idea and wanted to make one. Do you know anywhere that sells it or do you buy online?

    Hi, I live in Europe and I bought that fabric at local vendor that does not ship abroad. Sorry, I don't know any online shop that sells this kind of fabric and ships its worldwide.

    Company named Cordura is making this kind of fabric, so you may search it by this name. But I guess that a lot of seller are wholesales and fabric itself may be bit pricey.

    Very nice results! I appreciate the measurements and details added directly to the photos. That's a lot of work, but it transmits the necessary info very well to readers. Good work!
