Default Missing a leg..

Last year in an unfortunate hiking accident (involving a river) I lost a leg of my favorite zip-off hiking pants. During the last 11 months I've worn all sorts of other hiking pants but none have been as comfortable. I also haven't found any decent sources of fabric to make a new leg. The model of my pants isn't made anymore, and their closest model now (Prana, Zion convertible) is $110.

Does anyone know a good source for 2-way stretch DWR fabric? Closest I've come is ~$10/yrd, with $26+ shipping (to Canada), no choice in colour.

Does anyone have a spare leg they don't need? (23.5" long or longer, ~10.5" across zipper). Color doesn't matter much as I don't wear these in civilized areas, but the pants are brown. Zipper I'd have to replace myself. Could even take a leg off some non-zip pants. Worst case I sacrifice some Costco pants ($22) but hoping to find some fabric with a little stretch.

Maybe check ebay or Gear Trade. There's always older gear floating around on there.
Also maybe worth contacting the manufacturer directly to see...they often have old product stored away, warranty returns, etc.

I've gotten 0 response from the manufacturer. Ebay no luck either. Need to check Value Village, maybe the women's section if I'm going to be sewing anyways, more selection there.
