    The Mountain Series is a hand selected collection of the highest performance fabrics/materials on earth - each one optimized for applications ranging from tarp/shelters, to quilts, hammocks, packs, and other high-end outdoor gear.

    Custom woven from the ground up with high-tenacity nylon 6.6 yarn and an oversized ripstop grid, 1.2 oz MTN XL Hybrid sets the new standard for ultralight fabric in strength and durability.

    Compared to the previous generation, this fabric is:

    • Roughly 30% stronger (*based on tear strength ASTM D1434)


    • Higher abrasion and UV resistance (*via upgrade to HT nylon 6.6)

    As the name implies, 1.2 oz MTN XL Hybrid uses our unique Hybrid weave ripstop construction. Compared to most standard ripstop fabrics, we use a thicker, stronger yarn (80D) for the ripstop grid vs the base fabric (20D).

    The result is a noticeably stronger and more rugged material with minimal increase in overall finished weight...

    MTN series Hybrid ripstop weave

    Lastly, we utilize a diamond hybrid ripstop grid pattern. This makes the fabric easier to sew, increases comfort for load bearing applications (e.g. hammocks), and tends to extend the overall life of the fabric.

    Like the other fabrics in our XL line, we've custom woven 1.2 oz MTN XL Hybrid to be WIDER than standard fabrics at 68" versus the more common 60" width.

    Typical uses include widebody hammocks, synthetic quilt shells, chairs, light duty bags, or any application where breathable and lightweight yet strong/durable fabric is needed.


    - This fabric was transitioned to 1.2 oz nylon 6.6 from the previous 1.2 oz nylon 6 variant on 7/30/19. The 1.2 oz nylon 6 variant will not be restocked.

    - We also trimmed the weight back to 1.2 oz from 1.3 oz on 8/20/20. This will be the new weight we stock moving forward.

Man 1.2 vs 1.7 experience.

So my first hammock I made out of mtn 1.7. I love it. This time I tried the 1.2 version. It is much softer and has some give, but not too much. For a lightweight, wide hammock I can’t imagine any better material. For home, it is a tougher choice though between the two. I like the stiffness of the 1.7 better overall, but prefer the softness of the 1.2. Both seem durable. The 1.7 is a lot easier to sew, but both are manageable even for a beginner like me. Honestly, just buy both and make two hammocks and give away the one you don’t prefer.

Thanks so much for the review Tommy! 1.2 and 1.7 MTN XL Hybrid Ripstop Nylon 6.6 are both great options for hammocks. With many different color options and great durability, it is definitely hard to choose between the two. We are happy you were pleased with both products, and had an easy-going time sewing them both. Let us know if we can do anything for you in the future.

MTN 1.2 The perfect Bridge Hammock Fabric?

Been developing a bridge hammock design and this fabric is an almost perfect blend of strength, stiffness and "lightness". There are no sags or stretches, just great support on the firm side, which is what I was after.
The fabric is easy to handle, mark up and sew ... with a weight rating of 275 for the 1.2 oz/m2, there are other products that have the same rating, but they seem to have more stretch.
There are also a really nice selection of colours, which when paired up with Monolite .7 (which also has lots of colours) for bug netting can give a very sharp looking finished product.

Thanks for the awesome detailed review Donna! 1.2 MTN XL is a great hammocking fabric with awesome color options. Great tip on pairing it with MONOLITE for bug net. We would love to see your hammock if you are willing to share it with us on Instagram. Thanks again!

1.2 MTN XtraWide

The 1.2 MTN is a great fabric to work with. It’s very easy to sew. I designed a custom hammock and laying in it was so relaxing. It is really great stuff.

Thanks for the kind words! We're glad you're enjoying the 1.2 MTN XL as your new MYOG hammock!

I love the colors of this product. I got blue and purple. It sees nice and is super lightweight, which will help me keep my pack weight down.

Thanks for leaving us a review Julie! Be sure to share your project on social media, we would love to see!

DIY Azym Hammock

I made an Azym Hammock from a parallelogram cut at about 65 degrees angle. Works like a charm. Whipped ends like Hennessy patent. Around 3 meters ridgeline length gives plenty space in this hammock. Bug net next. I am 182cm tall at around 90kg heavy. 1.2 oz works very well for me.

Your hammock sounds epic! Thanks for leaving us a review Jon, we're glad the 1.2 oz MTN Hybrid worked well for this project. We'd love to see photos, here is a link if you'd like to share! https://forms.gle/P4EHrfiWJ5kajdrE8
