    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.

1.6 silpoly black

This stuff is the bomb. Little bit heavier but stronger than 1.1 I have made A frame tent and bug bivy with this and am very pleased with the results.

Thanks for the great review! We would love to see your projects if you are willing to share with us on Instagram. We love 1.6 Silpoly as a great waterproof option for a variety of projects.

Couldn't find the blemishes.

Bought this to make a pair of rain chaps prior to a 5-day camping trip in Los Padres NF in early November. Worked like a charm. Material looked good and was easy to sew (I'm such a noob!) It didn't rain, but they look serviceable--a good addition to the Snugpak patrol poncho. Will find out in time. Definitely would buy this product again.

Hey James! First off, thanks for the review we are so happy you liked your product. We hope you had a good time on your camping trip and are glad your MYOG pants served you well. The Ripstop Team would love to see your project if you are willing to share it with us on Instagram. Thanks again!
