You can order it https://www.amazon.com/Marine-Grade-Shock-Cord-4-inch/dp/B077YT13J7

I've also seen it at a West Marine if you have one near you.

sailrite.com has it by the foot in black or white, various sizes. They'll ship small items by mail. IslandJim

That would have been my next question - that I forgot - so 1/4" is the standard?

Not sure. I would verify with Wilderness on the size before I bought any.

I bought a 50-foot length of 7 mm black bungee at BassPro. It's in-between 3/16" and 1/4", and is about the same as my Perception Pescador was rigged with. I didn't recommend it, because I don't think it's weathering very well. IslandJim

Yup. Such a minor detail, and 1/4" is not correct, although WS employees said it was. IT DOES NOT THREAD through the pre mounted eye-cleats, so we are talking something other than, and less than .25". The bungee thins and the plot thickens ...
