Will Thru-Hiker be getting any new cool fabrics this next year?  Somebody told me you guys used to sell eVent.  Any chance of getting that or any other waterproof-breathable in stock?

There’s a nice new Momentum color in: arctic green. Looks great; I’m psyched to make something out of it.
There’s a 60” spinntex pro that will come into stock in the late winter.  Around that time there is a possibility that the long time out-of-stock and frequently requested spectra gridstop may come back into stock.

Thru-Hiker has never carried eVent and has only carried a few w/b’s like epic and powershield.  I don’t have any plans to stock w/b’s in the coming year, but if something interesting comes my way you’ll hear about it here first.

Hi Ayce,

So what’s “arctic green,” exactly? Taffeta or ripstop? Is it available now, or are you waiting for a shipment?

Also, any chance of getting a tiny swatch of the momentum90 taffeta…just a few square inches to look at. Thanks.

A green momentum would be really cool.  In fact, I was just wishing I had some this past month when I made my climashield quilt.  A black shell and green lining would be very slick looking on a quilt, and even better if both fabrics were momentum.  Of course a green shell and black lining could be good too ;).  I ended up using black for the lining and shell and a green version of Goretex for the shell of the foot box.  Not as visually appealing as my first idea…
