5 inch elastic webbing in Coyote brown.

Hi, I'm looking for 5 inch wide (12.7cm) elastic webbing in Coyote Brown.

Search all the shops but impossible to find except when ordering 1000m ;(

I only know the 4"/100 mm from Tacticaltrim that has nearly that dimension:

No, it has to be 5 inch.
Very hard to find.
Mostly in black and white.

Maybe I could dye it but to get a nice coyote brown colour will be dificult.

why cant you use the 4"?
most companies even use it.
if it´s definitely not gonna work you maybe can sew two 4" pieces together, but I don´t know if that´s gonna work either.

Its for a IFAK project where the side are 5 inch and need to be stretchy.

I've found white elastic band and dyed it but not to my likings. And I think it will not hold up for long.
Other suggestions are welcome.…201617.jpg?dl=0…201633.jpg?dl=0…201853.jpg?dl=0

Yes, I was also thinking about this alternative. Good call!

Sewing two straps of elastic webbing together will hardly work as the thread not only needs to be stretchy but also to the same extent.

Furthermore, this width elastic webbing doesn't stretch easily. You will need a subsystem force to stretch it. My guess is that alternatives might be worth a second look in this case. Like shock cord... Or you use two straps of 1" elastic webbing running over (but not sewn to) an underlying piece of Cordura with the maximum allowed width...

i would recommend using shockcord because it gives u the ability of adjustment. and u can change it easily out if it rips.
