Does anyone know where I can find thermoplastic lash patches (both 6 slot and 2 slot) besides Campmor? I've been surprised that I cannot find them anywhere else online but Campmor. Just working on some pack repairs and pack additions, and I don't need anything else from Campmor (especially at $6.99 minimum shipping). Looking for a single package of 6 slot and a single package of 2 slot.

Midwest Mountaineering in Minneapolis carried these, but I'm no longer anywhere near Minneapolis. (amazing store for those who might be in the area).

this is what they look like:
2 slot (http://www.campmor.com/outdoor/gear/Product___67780) $3

6 slot (http://www.campmor.com/outdoor/gear/Product___67782) $4

or if you're willing to pick me up a package of each at your local store and throw them in an envelop, I'd greatly appreciate the help and obviously pay all shipping and troubles. not asking for a special trip. if you find yourself at the store, maybe you could help me out.

Seattle Fabrics has them. Great people to deal with. They carry all kinds of fun stuff.

thank you both. truly.

I don't live near any stores like REI, Cabelas, etc. One of those times I really wish I did.

Like all those options at Seattle Fabrics, but the shipping kills the deal for them. Unless I'm reading it inaccurately, they charge $4 for handling alone, PLUS the shipping.

anyone else?

Anyplace you order them from is going to charge shipping.
Isn't there anything else you need to fill out your order so the shipping covers more items?
How about thread for your sewing awl and sealant for the stiching?
And of course you'll need some straps to use with those slot patches to hold the gear. See, now the shipping becomes a minor part of the total expense.
