0.74 oz ROBIC 7D ripstop nylon
0.74 oz ROBIC® 7D is the lightest fabric in our ROBIC® nylon line and one of the only 7 Denier fabrics on the market today.
In exchange for a modest weight increase compared to other ultralight fabrics (e.g. Membrane 10), ROBIC® 7D uses a specially formulated, microporous PU coating to achieve much higher water resistance while also maintaining good breathability (see specs below). It's also calendered and downproof.
Like the rest of our ROBIC® nylon line, ROBIC® 7D is both stronger and more durable compared to similar weight standard nylon fabrics. See below for a typical comparison between fabrics using standard Nylon 6 yarn and ROBIC® yarn:
Translation? ROBIC® fabrics are up to 50% stronger with 2.5x the tear strength. In other words, it's hard to break and tough to rip.
Typical uses include quilt shells, jackets, tarps, blankets, rain mittens, beanies, or any application requiring an ultralight fabric with an excellent combination of water resistance and breathability.
*NOTE - Because of reduced air permeability, we do not recommend using ROBIC 7D for both the inner AND outer layers of any fully enclosed application (e.g. quilts). For best results, use together with a fully breathable layer of fabric (e.g. MEMBRANE 10).
