Genuine Mil-Spec Webbing,
All cotton webbing has been mildew resistant & water repellent treated.
Made in the USA.

Multiple yards will be in a single, uncut piece (though long yardage may still have a break in it due to how it was produced by the manufacturer).

Please note, for all cotton webbing: There is some odor and residue due to the treatments, and there will be some discoloration due to storage and age.
