I have a client who wants me to help him find the fabric that is used for bindings in snowshoes. It looks like a very heavy vinyl to me, maybe more than 30 oz. Any idea where I can purchase it for him?
While it’s possible that your client’s snowshoe bindings are made out of vinyl, we think rubber is more likely. Rubber remains flexible in lower temperatures than does vinyl, and lower temperatures would definitely be a factor in this application. We contacted a number of suppliers of rubber-coated fabric that indicated they might be able to assist. Several already had snowshoe clients.
