2.2 oz HEX70 XL is a 70 denier high-tenacity ripstop nylon designed specifically for higher strength, d urability , and abrasion resistance compared to standard 1.9 oz 70D ripstop fabrics.
Like the other fabrics in our XL line, we've custom woven HEX70 to be WIDER than standard fabrics at 67" versus the more common 60" width.
HEX70 XL is offered in two finishes (select from dropdown above):
1) Breathable with DWR both sides - Widebody hammocks, bags, lightweight clothing, or any application where durable yet relatively lightweight fabric is needed. Uncoated but water repellent.
2) PU3000/DWR - Backpacks, robust tarps/shelters, bags, dry sacks, or any application needing a durable yet relatively lightweight waterproof material. ~1 oz urethane coating on back, DWR front. Highly waterproof and non-breathable.
