Fabric tripod leg wraps

I have excellent foam wraps on my tripod, that I don't wish to remove. I'm looking for Camouflage fabric wraps with velcro that will fit over my foam leg wraps. Any ideas as to where to get these?

Thanks!

There are some at B&H. Unless you wanted to go to the fabric store and get some cloth to make your own.

Those have the foam insulation inside the wraps.

How about fabric handlebar tape? Like for racing bikes? You can get it in any colour, including camouflaged patterns.
Some are loose fabric ribbon and others have sticky backs.
Actually, you could probably find suitable ribbon in the colour you want and just wrap it around. It would be 'permanent' but removable.

Thanks! I was looking at them, and wonder if they would make the legs on my tripod too thick, as it looks like they are lined with a soft neoprene backing. I don't see a phone # for them, and their live support has been offline. If they are returnable, I'd certainly order them to see how they would fit over my foam tubing on the legs.

Update: I see that items are returnable within 14 days!

OP/TECH USA makes "Tripod Leg Wraps" in which the foam and the wrap are separate. Alternatively, I use pipe insulation wrapped with hockey stick tape, which is available in a wide variety of colours and patterns (camouflage, in my case).

Thanks, I checked with OpTech (they are only 90 miles from me!). They only have them in black. I want camouflage, as I'm getting the Bigma lens shortly, and I'm getting the LensCoat wrap for that lens, in camouflage. I think I'll try the LensCoat wraps, and if they don't fit, I can return them. I really don't want to remove the foam on the legs of my tripod, as it came with these, and are in excellent condition. Covering them will keep them that way.

Go to Ebay and search for "camouflage tape." This might work. The offerings seem to be self-adhesive, removable, and cheap. I've never tried any of these, but they might be good for a quick-and-dirty proof-of-concept.
A Google search might give even more options.

Cheers,
Lou
