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 fiber and an oversized ripstop grid, 1.2 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. Unlike most ripstop that uses the same yarn size throughout, we use a thicker, stronger yarn for the ripstop grid (80D) vs the base fabric (20D).
The result is a noticeably stronger and more rugged material with minimal increase in overall finished weight...
Lastly, to reduce bias stretch and increase abrasion resistance, we use a diamond hybrid ripstop grid pattern. This makes the fabric easier to sew, increases comfort for load bearing applications (e.g. hammocks), and extends 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.
