I had been looking for a lightweight coated rip-stop fabric for making a wideness shelter. I want something which is tough (for the floor) and water-proof (for the top). I also want a 'subdued' colour for safety (not 'tactical') reasons. A 1.9 oz fabric would seem good enough for rain protection. However, it probably is not good enough as the floor. I ran into this 2.2 oz rip stop at RipstopByTheRoll and it suits me perfectly. The thickness of the PU coating is just right and yet the fabric does not feel rigid. RipstopByTheRoll delivers on quality, value for money and service. Keep up your good work, please.
Good product and service
I was not let down. This is really great quality.
I used this fabric for a hammock. I usually prefer more stretch than this provides. But durability was what I needed. I made this hammock to take on a family vacation, and thought it would see some abuse. It feels soft on my skin and it doesn't have too much friction on my clothing. It is durable. And it's really easy to work with.
I recently ordered 3 yards of the 2.2 oz. HEX70 XL ripstop and 4 yards of the 1.9 oz. ripstop. Both are great options to make removable protective casings for my specialty pet headgear product for special needs pets that require head protection. So far, I have only used the HEX70 XL ripstop for the protective casings; it is easy to work with and the casings look wonderful! Ripstop By The Roll has earned the #1 spot as my “go to” ripstop supplier. Kyle, thanks a bunch!
