1.7 oz MTN XL Hybrid Ripstop Nylon
Thanks for leaving us a review, Happy Making!
I love it!
1.7 oz MTN is a fan fave! We're glad you love it as much as we do, enjoy!
I made a pair of shell pants (Green Pepper #128) using this fabric and so far they have been nice and breathable (with open leg cuffs). I've noticed that the reinforcing threads have more of a tendency to snag and/or fray than the base threads. Just something to keep in mind.
I have not had the chance to see if this fabric is bug proof, but will post another review when I know definitively. Seems like it's woven tightly enough to at least be a major hassle for mosquitos, etc, to penetrate.
Thanks for your review William! We'd love to see how your shell pants turned out. Be sure to tag us on social media. Let us know if you have any questions about future projects, we're here to help!
I used this to make another gathered end extra long and wide hammock. The finished item came out to 12' 4", and was 70" wide. After installing continuous loops and the ridgeline, the total weight was less than 4 oz. Definitely recommend this material for "big boy" hammocks!
Thanks so much Patrick! That sounds like an awesome hammock, we'd love to see photos. Be sure to tag us on social media or email firstname.lastname@example.org
This is my favorite fabric for hammocks. It has a great feel to it and it is strong enough and wide enough for a single layer double hammock. Max weight 400 lbs according to RSBTR’s fabric comparison chart.
Thanks for the review Zach! The 1.7 oz MTN Hybrid is a great choice for hammocking, we're glad you love it! Let us know if you have any questions about future projects, we're here to help!
