I want to modify a Mt. Hardwear tent fly. The company tells me they can't sell me material. Where can I find fabric that's the same color, weight, and coating?

you might just have a chance if you tell us what particular MH tent you have...however often manufacturers like MH have their own custom colours and custom fabrics.

For technical fabrics, I mostly use Quest Outfitters, OWFINC (Outdoor Wilderness Fabrics), Seattle Fabrics.  There are many other smaller stores (or makers selling off supplies) that I might check for pricing but their products are much more limited.  Of these, Seattle Fabrics usually has the widest variety of colors.  All of them will send you samples if you ask.

You'll probably be able to match the fabric or be close enough so that it works but I think you'll have problems matching the exact color.

Craigslist for a damaged tent that you can cut up?

I would probably start with something that was free before I started buying stuff. But I am a cheap bast@rd.
