* Special Note - We are currently transitioning to a wider 74" width for this fabric. See specs for notes on which colors have been transitioned. Thanks!
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.
Looking for wider, stronger, and more durable? Meet 1.7 oz MTN XL Hybrid - the latest addition to the Mountain Series line and built from the ground up to outperform similar weight nylon fabrics.
We also did something we've never done before. We call it a Hybrid weave, and essentially what it means is that compared to most standard ripstop fabrics, we use a much thicker, stronger yarn (120D) for the ripstop grid vs the base fabric (40D).
The result is a stronger, more rugged material with minimal increase in overall finished weight...
Lastly, we utilize a diamond hybrid ripstop grid pattern. This makes the fabric easier to sew , increases comfort for load bearing applications (e.g. hammocks), and tends to extend the overall life of the fabric .
Like the other fabrics in our XL line, we've custom woven 1.7 oz MTN XL Hybrid to be WIDER than standard fabrics at 68" versus the more common 60" width.
1.7 oz MTN XL Hybrid is great for widebody hammocks, rugged synthetic quilt shells, chairs, lightweight bags, or any application where lightweight, strong, and highly durable fabric is needed.
