    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.

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!

Great service. Great product.

Good company.

Thank you so much for your review!

I like it

This has a little more structure and strength than 1.1 for not really being noticeably heavier. I think I will use this more, unless I really need the lightest weight (which realistically I don't need.)

Thanks Dan! It's hard to go wrong with the 1.6 oz Silpoly. We'd love to see photos of your finished project, be sure to tag us on social media!


Product looks good. Arrived accordingly.

Thanks for the review Scott! Let us know if you have questions about creating with the 1.6 oz Silpoly.

Great! The quality seems great & arrived right on time

Great! Planning to use this as a ground sheet for our new Drop X-Mid 2P Tent. Dan Durston listed out measurements and recommended this fabric. Arrived right on time so we could set up the tent and get it the right size underneath.

Awesome! Thanks for the review Marlee, let us know if you have any questions about future projects!
