    1.6 oz silicone coated polyester ripstop (aka silpoly). This fabric is coated with a silicone/PU layer on each side and is waterproof/non-breathable.

    1.6 oz Silpoly offers higher strength, lower bias stretch, and better puncture/abrasion resistance than our lightweight 1.1 oz Silpoly and ultralight Membrane Silpoly. Best used when you prefer a more robust material over the absolute lightest weight.

    Same silpoly benefits of lower water absorption and increased UV resistance compared to Silnylon. Great for projects such as tarps, tents, ponchos, gear sacks, pack covers, or any application where a robust waterproof/windproof fabric is needed.

Quality is the best!

I am always impressed with the quality and great customer service at Ripstop.
I have been a tad disappointed in their increased shipping costs.

Thanks for your review Anne. We're glad you are satisfied with the quality and customer service! Unfortunately, the shipping provider costs have gone up to reflect the rising gas prices in 2022. Please remember that we charge at-cost for shipping and these are changes that are being from the shipping providers, we wish it wasn't the case.

Thank you for choosing RBTR! We appreciate you!

nice material

Nice material. Packaged and shipped well. A bit too heavy to make a shibumi knock off though. Worked well in moderate winds, but too heavy for lighter days. Turning this into a tarp.

Thanks for the review Tod! The 1.6 oz Silpoly will make a great tarp. We also have 1.1 oz Silpoly that might work better for a lighter sunshade. Contact us at support@ripstopbytheroll for any questions you might have, we're here to help!

12-yard purchase

I am so happy I found this company online! Thank you YouTube for the videos on how to work with ripstop poly and showing another place to order it! No worries about receiving less than desirable cuttings. I actually accidentally duplicated my order and contacted customer service by email right away! Kyle was super efficient and took care of my error. And he followed up to be sure all was ok! Super company. Now I need to figure out what other things to sew to order more product!

Thanks so much for your review Loraine! We're glad you found us and are finding the YouTube videos so helpful. Let us know if you have any questions about future projects or other fabrics we carry. We're here to help!

Very workable fabric

Having used 1.1 silpoly for tarp beaks and the various membrane fabrics for quilts I can safely say that the ease of sewing the 1.6oz silpoly is more than worth any miniscule weight savings you get from lighter fabrics for small items like stuff sacks, drybags, rain skirts, etc. I made a few pack covers for members of our scout troop and rectangle bottom sleep system packing cube for myself. A simple 1.6oz silpoly pack cover is still lighter than most commercially available $20+ options and offers reasonable durability.

Thanks for your review Jody! If you love working with the 1.6 Silpoly we also offer it in custom printing! It would be cool to see the Boy Scout logo or Troop on gear for the scouts! If you have any questions about custom printing or future projects, be sure to reach out to us at support@ripstopbytheroll.com we're here to help!
