I picked this to make a lining for a wool/cashmere overcoat I made. I wanted something that would be a little more wind/water resistant than a standard coat lining.
Pros: Incredibly light, soft, and silky. Initially I had chosen the calendared option as I wanted to max out wind resistance but it makes sort of a crackly sound which I knew would annoy me. The uncalendared feels like a nice dress fabric and it wasn’t overly hard to work with. I did experience a little puckering at the seams but that might have been my needle choice. I was working with an 11 because I was out of anything more dainty. Used a traditional garment thread.
Here’s what I didn’t care for: The fabric got really frayed as I was working. Next time I think I would opt for pinking or serging the edges. Also, the burnt orange color is a little lighter than I had hoped. I also found this with the burnt orange option of the .66 oz nylon taffeta which I used to make a coordinating removable primaloft filled liner for the same coat. But perhaps I just have a different vision of burnt orange!
Overall, I am looking forward to seeing how this experiment works this winter. I am also planning on using the same fabric in gray to make an insulated skirt since it is so soft and nice. As always, ordering from Ripstop by the Roll was a pleasure! It’s a great company!
I am happy to have been able to get a little more of this colour “Dark Purple” before it runs out and isn’t restocked. The HyperD is a little heavier than some of the other fabrics, but the colour choices are more interesting, so I sacrificed a little weight for some fashion. I made a box baffled down pullover with about 5oz down. Not something offered by any retailer that I know of. Very happy with the finished result. I hope RSBTR will offer this colour in other fabrics. It is not a feminine shade of purple at all. The photos do not show the real shade very well.

Lover the fabric
I bought all materials for a Top Quilt here, as well as relying on "Projects" suggestions and links, timely answering of my
questions by Justin, You tube videos by Ripstop, and excellent well- priced quality fabric and accessories. Using Hyper D and ripstop nylon with Climashield 5 oz. resulted in a 1lb 7 oz. bag. I am glad I ordered a yard extra of each to make stuff sacks and add a little more length. I am ordering again soon for a second top quilt. I also have had success with Dyneema and silyon for Dry bags and waterproof zipper bags. With the addition of a 12 dollar 30 watt soldering iron for cutting and sealing and wonder clips for " pinning" that is all I needed. I have found many uses for the Kamsnap
tool I purchased from Ripstop. Great to find this company. Another positive is they let you know when a product is back in stock and in my case it only took less than a week before it was restocked.
