Javelin (help on reserve) Can't Post

I sent sunpath my rig to be made cypress ready ,when I got it back they sent a fabric and plastic sheath to house my cables.This is my second repack and the glue on the fabric cable sheath has dried up and came loose.Does anyone know where I can get an all fabric cable housing which could be sewn into the reserve container.Any ideas ?

Are you referring to the shiny black sleeve that hides the Cypres cables and is glued ot the reserve pack tray?
If so, it can be replaced with any strip of fabric or webbing more than 1.5" wide. Any rigger should have some spare Cypres sleeving, but the glue on it will just dry up next year.
The challenge is sewing it to the pack tray. Machine sewing requires dismantling half the rig. It is far easier to just hand sew the sleeve to the pack tray in 3 or 4 places.
