Used the .9 membrane for a quilt, haven't used it in the wild yet but it feels very nice against the skin. Obviously it is pretty light, came in all told right at 20oz which isn't too shabby. I find the polys easier to work with and that they don't ravel as badly as nylon when cold cut.
On the durability front, can't say for the quilt but I made a quick toy for the dog with an old tennis ball and two wedge shared scraps, going on two weeks now and while it has some rips and tears it is still hanging on. He hasn't sat down to deliberately chew it but is rough enough with it to really impress me. He has destroyed those fire hose toys before so I don't doubt this could end up there easily.
After seeing Kyle's great hammock video I decided I wanted to put some together for my kids. RBTR makes it super easy to order these with standard fabrics and I can't wait to get these sewed up and out for use this summer!
Got this for the inner layer of an underquilt. Easy to sew, looks good, and seems like it’s gonna last a while. What more could you ask for?
This material is great. Very soft. I am about as amateur as possible with sewing. I have nothing to base it off of because it was literally my first sewing project, but found it easy to work with. Also I placed my order in the middle of the “polar vortex”. It arrived on time. Will definitely continue to order materials from Ripstop for future projects.
I used this to make a down top quilt and I can't believe how soft it feels. I tried using a universal needle at first but it was tearing the fabric instead of pushing the fibers aside. Switched to a Microtex (sharp point) as well as a smaller thread size and everything was fine. The charcoal is much darker than other fabrics of the same color, but looks great when paired with the burnt orange.
