    2.2 oz HEX70 XL is a 70 denier high-tenacity ripstop nylon designed specifically for higher  strength, d urability ,  and abrasion resistance compared to standard 1.9 oz 70D ripstop fabrics. 

    Like the other fabrics in our XL line, we've custom woven HEX70 to be WIDER than standard fabrics at 67" versus the more common 60" width

    HEX70 XL is offered in two finishes (select from dropdown above):

    1) Breathable with DWR both sides - Widebody hammocks, bags, lightweight clothing, or any application where durable yet relatively lightweight fabric is needed. Uncoated but water repellent. 

    2) PU3000/DWR - Backpacks, robust tarps/shelters, bags, dry sacks, or any application needing a durable yet relatively lightweight waterproof material. ~1 oz urethane coating on back, DWR front. Highly waterproof and non-breathable. 

    When ordering HEX70 fabric, please select your finish with the drop-down box above. Unsure which one is best for your application? Check out our FAQ page for quick answers or submit a question through our Contact Us page. We're always happy to give advice on the right fabric.

Great fabric, great service

I got this for a tent floor and think it will be perfect! It seems thick enough to withstand the rocks and roots of the forest floor, as well as my dogs nails. The color is awesome as well with the hexagon pattern. Not an UL fabric, but a very strong fabric.

Hi Brandel, Thanks for the review! The 2.2 Hex70 is perfect for ground contact applications.
2.2 oz HEX70 XL ripstop nylon

I had been looking for a lightweight coated rip-stop fabric for making a wideness shelter. I want something which is tough (for the floor) and water-proof (for the top). I also want a 'subdued' colour for safety (not 'tactical') reasons. A 1.9 oz fabric would seem good enough for rain protection. However, it probably is not good enough as the floor. I ran into this 2.2 oz rip stop at RipstopByTheRoll and it suits me perfectly. The thickness of the PU coating is just right and yet the fabric does not feel rigid. RipstopByTheRoll delivers on quality, value for money and service. Keep up your good work, please.


Good product and service

Great product

I was not let down. This is really great quality.

heavy duty hammock

I used this fabric for a hammock. I usually prefer more stretch than this provides. But durability was what I needed. I made this hammock to take on a family vacation, and thought it would see some abuse. It feels soft on my skin and it doesn't have too much friction on my clothing. It is durable. And it's really easy to work with.
