Which should I pick and why?
No order minimum. Choose this option to send fabric cut and folded (like a blanket). See continuous cut policy for full details on max cut lengths.
  • If you want burly, strong, and durable, you've come to the right place. Our 420D ROBIC® double-grid ripstop nylon was built for the long-haul and is one of the toughest materials we currently offer.

    Like all materials in our ROBIC® line, the difference starts with the yarn. See below for a typical comparison between fabrics using standard Nylon 6 yarn and ROBIC® yarn:

    ROBIC vs Nylon 6

    Translation? ROBIC® fabrics can be up to 50% stronger with up to  2.5x the tear strength. In other words, they're hard to break and tough to rip.    

    We've also added a special  UV protective coating to the face side of the fabric. This extra step protects against sun exposure which can cause color fading and material degradation over time. 

    This material is excellent for backpacks, gear reinforcements, heavy-duty sacks/bags, or any project requiring a tough, durable, and waterproof fabric.

Great Material, Durable and Good Weight

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.

Good fabric but it affects your shipping price

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).

HI Joe, Thanks for the review! We hope you enjoy the 420D.
Awesome stuff!

Just as described

420D Robic

Awesome quality as always. Hopefully this fabric will make a killer backpack project that I can upload soon.

Great Fabric, inconsistent coating

I've been using this fabric for a few packs lately and I do enjoy it. It sews well and is much more affordable to 210d xgrid. My one gripe is that the coating thickness is pretty inconsistent. The order I just received had a much thicker coating on the inside and doesn't drape as well as the much visibly thinner and shinier coating on an older order. I'm curious to see how the long term coating durability differs between the various orders I've received.
