I'm 6'2" and 250lbs, I made a 11.5' long hammock from this and it is super comfy, I like a softer bed or sleeping pad, and this allows for a bit of stretch and that makes all the difference. It is wicked slick though, so moving around in it is pretty tough, as you have no grip on the fabric.
Hey Daniel! Thanks for your review, we're glad it worked well for your hammock setup. The 1.6 HyperD does have a silky hand-feel with low friction. 2.2 oz Hex70 XL is another good choice, but has less stretch and more of a firm feel.
They never have what I need and when they do it takes up to 6 weeks for delivery. I have decided to go with a different company for all my ripstop needs.
Hey Dave, we are extremely sorry to hear that. We recently moved into our new HQ and it took us longer than expected for the entire process unfortunately. If you ever have any questions on when a product will be back in stock (or anything else!) please reach out to us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can help you one-on-one. If you ever decided to order from us again, we promise we won't let you down!
I’ve used this ripstop (different styles) but always XL for my projects. It is durable and the coloring is high quality. One of my projects has had daily use for 2.5 years and shows no sign of wear and tear.
We love to hear that Erin! We'd love to see of some of your projects with the HyperD! Here is a link if you'd like to share any, https://forms.gle/svyHyGFQPoMtL79K9
Nice soft fabric! Sews well.
Thanks for your review Kyle! The 1.6 oz HyperD is great to work with, glad you're enjoying it!
Just finished my first hammock with the 1.6 HyperD. Seems to be the same fabric but wider. Will start on a wider hammock prototype soon. What stands out to me most about this fabric is the feel and the balanced stretch the material has. The colors are nice too. Highly recommend. Can't wait to see how the XL turns out.
Thanks for the review! We're glad to hear your hammock turned out well! We'd love to see photos, be sure to tag us on social media!
