    I was out window shopping with my My wife on Easter when we entered a http://www.columbia.com/ store in Woodburn. In the men's section they had a jacket that was a perfect purple and material. It had a slight sparkle to it and was thin enough to move in but had that thick look to it. It even had the same 'rib' stictching seen on Zam's legs. I tried looking for it on their website but didn't see it. It was on sale for $49.99 marked down from $130 so it might be an 'outlet' item only now.

    All I got for info was the bar code.
    The outlet code is XM3966 - 013
    UPC No: 6 9283267012 6.
    It is an 'EXS Play Nice Jacket' made from 100% polyester soft shell material, last years model.

    If we could find the source of the fabric that they used for the jacket it would be a great!

    I am not sure polyester is going to move properly. We know that Zam's body suit was made of neoprene.

    And since there is a source for a pretty close match for neoprene already, I'm not sure it's worth all the time it would take you to likely in the end not be able to get the information you need. Cool find though!

    Well, it was lycra covered neoprene... And it would be a pain to find the fabric source - if even possible. Not likely to uncover a bolt or two of the original fabric hidden in a warehouse someplace... I still find myself looking for "Zam" material though...
