Which should I pick and why?
No order minimum. Choose this option to send fabric cut and folded (like a blanket). See continuous cut policy for full details on max cut lengths.

    Wider and more waterproof, 1.1 oz Silpoly XL is the big brother to our best selling 1.1 oz Silpoly material. Put simply, it's over a foot wider with one of the best waterproof ratings on the market for lightweight coated fabrics.  

    Designed from the ground up by us, the custom woven XL width and enhanced waterproof coating combine to offer best in-class coverage and protection from the elements. 

    In addition to mega coverage and it's waterproof/windproof characteristics, Silpoly XL offers lower water absorption and increased UV resistance compared to Silnylon. Particularly useful in outdoor applications to minimize sag/stretch when wet and color fade over time.

    Great for projects such as tarps, tents, ponchos, gear sacks, pack covers, or any application where lightweight waterproof/windproof fabric is needed.

    *Note  1 - This fabric has matte and shiny sides due to our cire finishing process (see pic). You can place either side towards the elements, but remember to double-check that you're pairing similar sides in projects with multiple panels (e.g. tarps, tents, etc). Should you choose, you can seam seal either side of the fabric with 100% silicone sealant such as Sil-Net.

awesome service, great fabric

Received my order right on time. It was all as described online, even the colors match the photos online. Had a busy weekend making my first tarp. Now I am ready to hit the trails

Thanks so much for the thoughtful review! Hope you enjoy your gear.
Silpoly XL

A very good fabric, easy to sew, if you use a slow speed.
It the only one fabric available in this size, and it is easy to do a tarp with only one piece.
Thank you RipstopByTheRoll

Thank YOU! Silpoly XL definitely makes for a MONSTER tarp. We seriously appreciate the feedback. Let us know if you need anything! :)
Molly Mac Gear Box rates this fabric Excellent

Gear Boxes need to be tough and waterproof, because a Gear Box is a Gear Hammock that folks use to store their backpack. It has to be waterproof, and it has to withstand a tired hiker dumping a loaded back pack into it.

Thanks so much MacEntyre. Hope many people get some fantastic use out of their Gear Boxes!
Excellent Customer Service

I don't expect perfection, mistakes happen even with the best technology and the best intentions. What I really care about is how mistakes are handled. RBTY was perfect. First they apologized for the problem. Secondly, they offered to replace the materials. And then, thirdly, asked what else they could do to make things right! I don't know how anyone could do better than that. That's World Class!!

Rain cover backpack, 65-70 liter

New to the game so wasn't sure which side of silpoly was facing outside, and new to sewing. But the sewing pattern and instructions were clear and simple. Excellent beginner's project to build skills and confidence for other diy gear. FYI, I used grass trimming line to "fish" the 1/16 cord through the rolled hem (lol using the lingo) channels.
