I’m looking for wholesale Ultrex

Gallienne | Posted in General Discussion on

Just wondering if anyone knows where I can buy wholesale
“ultrex” waterproof, breathable, outerwear fabric.
100% nylon, windproof. A microporous film or membrane is combined with a nylon to produce a lightweight shell fabric, waterproof. Thanks for your help!

    Hi Jennifer,

    Try Mile High Textile  http://www.milehightextile.com

    They have a 25 yard minimum I believe.

    You can also try the Rain Shed, 541-753-8900.

    I don't think they have a web site yet, but very nice to do business with.  They are not a wholesaler, but they give a generous discount for large orders, and they send swatch kits out for a dollar or so with many swatches and pricing and fiber content etc...   They usually have many more colors in stock than Mile High.

    Ultrex is getting harder to find, now that most people have switched to Gore products or Avalite. (Mile High carries Avalite, and will happily send a color chart.)

    Hope this helps, good luck!  Christine

      You might want to try Textile Outfitters (http://www.justmakeit.com) in Calgary Alberta Canada.  I've used them for many things, and the staff is very knowledgeable.  They also do a tremendous amuotn of mail order work, so getting it to you wouldn't be a probnlem.  If they don't have it they may be able to tell you who does.  Good luck!

        Textile Outfitters has Ultrex in their catalogue, which you can download from their site. I can vouch for their wonderful mail order service as well...I'm another long-term satisfied customer.

    Try Rose City Textiles: http://www.fabricline.com -- but not everything is on their website. They specialize in "outdoor fabrics", overruns

    from manufacturers like LL Bean and Nike, and prices go down with

    quantities bought. Since you say "wholesale", you're probably

    talking about 5+ yard quantities (I think price breaks are at 15 or

    30 and 100 yards, but don't quote me.) Anyhow, give them a call... I've

    gotten some real deals there over the years.

    You can purchase waterproof & breathable Ultrex fabric (and the newer version called Extreme made by the same mill) at http://www.peakfabrics.com . They offer a large selection of outerwear & activewear fabrics at discount prices. Swatching service is available & they have fast mail order service too. There are no minimum order requirements.
