  • The  Mountain Series  is a hand selected collection of the  highest performance fabrics/materials on earth  - each one optimized for applications ranging from tarp/shelters, to quilts, hammocks, packs, and other high-end outdoor gear. 

    Custom woven from the ground up with high-end nylon 6 yarn and an  oversized ripstop grid1.2 oz MTN XL Hybrid sets the standard for ultralight fabric in strength and durability. 

    As the name implies, 1.2 oz MTN XL Hybrid uses our unique Hybrid weave ripstop construction. Compared to most standard ripstop fabrics, we use a much  thicker, stronger yarn (80D) for the ripstop grid vs the base fabric (20D).

    The result is a noticeably stronger and more rugged material with minimal increase in overall finished weight... 

    MTN series Hybrid ripstop weave

    Lastly, we utilize a diamond hybrid ripstop grid pattern. This makes the fabric easier to sew, increases comfort for load bearing applications (e.g. hammocks), and tends to  extend the overall life of the fabric

    Like the other fabrics in our XL line, we've custom woven 1.2 oz MTN XL Hybrid to be WIDER than standard fabrics at 68" versus the more common 60" width.

    Typical uses include widebody hammocks, synthetic quilt shells, chairs, light duty bags, or any application where breathable and lightweight yet strong/durable fabric is needed.

1.2 MTN XL Hybrid

I have tried a number of fabrics from RSBTR and others. I find that I like a fabric with less stretch i.e. 1.7 Robic. However the 1.2 MTN has a nice amount of stretch but still feels solid. After several years working with RSBTR, I feel I don't have to talk about their service, quick delivery times or variety of products. You can find glowing reviews everywhere for this company. Because they are great.... at everything. Back to the fabric, it holds a crease well, feels tough for a UL fabric and moves nicely under the ol' feed dogs.

Lighter chair

Used this to replace the material on my Helinox ground chair, worked great, easy to sew and appears very strong! My chair is now 173 grams or 6 oz lighter! Love it!

Hi Rick, The 1.2 MTN series is a great material, and we're glad we were able to help bring the weight of the chair down. Thanks for the review!
1.2 MTN XL Hammock Build

I really like the feel and machinability of this material.

Hi Al, Thanks for the review! The 1.2 is a great material for a variety of projects!
New Hammock

I used your material to make a new hammock. I believe it will work out really well but I won't be able to use it backpacking untill next summer. I'm sure it will be really good. Light and strong.


Good Stuff

Made a light duty hammock out of this for backpacking. Still feels super sturdy despite the weight (even with my 215lb self). It is a little stretchy, but still sews great. If you want more durability, the 1.7 Robic is also a fantastic choice.

Hi Bryan, Thanks for the review. The 1.2 MTN is great for UL hammocks. Enjoy it!
