    GB, I don't know of a CND seller but you could try a google search I guess.
    SOLAS grade is pretty spendy but if you can live with a bit less reflectiveness I've got some tape we use offshore to find mooring buoys at night. Also use it on survival gear. Not SOLAS grade but works well and holds up well. If ya want 6 or 8 or whatever feet PM me your addy and I'll send ya some Monday.

    awjeez: thanks for your generous offer, and all, thanks for your feedback.

    I found a marine supply shop in Quebec that sells it by the foot, CAD$2.30 per foot and you can buy as much or as little as you want!

    If you're not in a rush, keep an eye on eBay.
    There's always someone selling it.

    Be aware that the SOLAS stuff is made to be visually reflective AND radar reflective. Perfect for a boat - or a bike that is running under the speed limit! (not that there is anything wrong with that...)

    Another option: You can get the alternating DOT Red/White reflective sticker strips you see on the sides of trucks at most industrial safety shops. Just cut them up as needed. They're cheap & stick great. One strip did my Gobi bags L&R. I put white on the front and red at the rear of each bag. Works awesome on the somewhat dark back end of a 950 at night.
