I will be travelling to the tropics and wanted to make a rain poncho that was very lightweight and could be folded into a small volume. I did not want a completely waterproof fabric, both because of the weight and waterproof fabrics in high heat and humidity tend to become equally wet on the inside and the outside. I chose a high dernier fabric [lightweight ripstop nylon] to give me some water repellency in an occasional squall. I have not yet taken it to the jungle, but if I need to use the poncho there I will write another review to report how it performed. It certainly was easy to sew.
Ponchos are the best! We would love to see the one you made for your tropic adventure. I hope it works well for you!
The calandered 1.1 oz ripstop nylon quality is outstanding ! I create parachutes for high powered rockets and everyone that has received a parachute is extremely happy with the fabric ! The fabric is light weight , packs tight in small spaces and is easy to work with making the parachutes . This fabric has yet to show any stress on any of parachutes I made for myself with many flights . I am glad I for RipStop by the Roll
