I needed a tough waterproof solution to reupholster the seat of the golf cart I use for off-road purposes. The Ripstop folks offered me the perfect material.
Very friendly. Very helpful people. Took care of me and got me my material in quick fashion.
Very good fabric. thank you!
The only color that was available was navy blue. I waited and asked about availability of the foliage color and checked periodically. I simply asked if RSBTR was planning to restock the foliage color of the material soon because if not (maybe they are planning to discontinue, etc.?), I was going to make other plans as I already had all the other major materials I needed for my project. I never got a direct answer, but I got plenty of emails about the owner touring around Asia and promotions of their new materials.
Out of frustration, I simply settled for the navy blue. Once I received it I realized the color was much darker than the one shown in the photo. Not a huge deal, but I hope for a better experience if I purchase from RSBTR again. I have purchased from them in the past without much issue, but after this I may be more hesitant to do so in the future.
I am using this as a bottom and front part of shoulder straps for a silnylon pack that I am making and it is the perfect material for it. I haven't gotten to use any of the gear that I have made so far with it but It seems like it will hold up great. Would most definitely buy again.
I ordered a small amount of this fabric to make my own version of the ZPP kit pouches and it worked great as the exterior. Be warned that adding this fabric to your order will affect the shipping price significantly. I ordered a 1/2 yard of this fabric along with a bunch of lighter-weight fabrics, zippers, and webbing and I did not qualify for the flat rate (cheap) shipping because of this piece of fabric (falls under the 420D or higher category).
