    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 grid1.2 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.

1.2 oz.MTN XL hybrid

Material was easy to sew and comfortable as a hammock. Time will tell if it is heavy enough to hold up, but it feels strong. Shipping was fast. Thanks. I also bought the bottom entry bug net and was happy with that too.

Thanks so much for your review Mel! The 1.2 oz MTN XL is an awesome fabric for hammocking. We'd love to see photos of your set up, here is a link if you'd like to share https://forms.gle/GsNgusDcnoh8Nm5j6

Very comfortable hammock material

HyperD and MTN - aesthetics, function, strength, tactile excellence

I want to say that when creating Rozum techwear products, these fabrics showed the best ratio of results in all parameters that are important for sewing complex products. I really like these fabrics, thank you for the delivery!

The only downside is the logistics, as FedEx/TNT is the most fucking service in my country, waiting 2 weeks for customs clearance, which DHL does in 1-2 days. It is a pity that you do not cooperate with DHL.

Thank you so much, Artem! We're glad you are happy with the 1.2 oz MTN Hybrid, it's an awesome fabric! We do apologize for shipping, unfortunately, all international shipments are experiencing delays in customs due to COVID.

Perfect hammock fabric

I designed a hammock with this fabric for long hikes and long trail hikers in my country.
It consists of a hammock body and a top cover with a ventilator.
Both used 1.2 MTN.
The top cover can be completely removed and switched to Bugnet.
For long hikes, we needed to be as light as possible and as durable as possible by its weight.
As a result of testing, this fabric successfully met that demand!
I use HyperD a lot, but I'm sure this fabric will be used more often in the future.

Thanks so much for the detailed review Jiro! That's great that this 1.2 oz MTN XL Hybrid met your gear test demands, it's a very durable fabric for it's weight class. Let us know if you have any questions about other fabrics for future projects!

Great width, durability factor and ease of stitching

I used 4 yds of this to make (another) gathered end hammock. The nice thing is that the folks doing the cutting actually gave me about 4" extra on the 12 ft! My goal was a long, wide hammock that would fit my "work from home" COVID-19 sized body.
The sides of this fabric are not "finished", but I don't worry about that, but just turn them under with a rolled hem. The little frizzies and cog line holes are a good measuring point. I do tend to iron my hems to make them easier to stitch. This fabric has a great feel to it, and has a square and diamond ripstop grid, which seems really durable to me. It was slightly shiny on the "inside", so that was how I stitched it up. The finished hammock was 140" in length and 67" wide. I used some gray Gutterman thread (the thin stuff) and a small needle on an old Singer. Perfect! I set it up to sleep in as a house hammock, but also plan to take it on trips.
I can't say enough about the speed of shipping, and great customer service! Overall, very pleased with this purchase, and will definitely be doing more...

Awesome! Thanks so much for the review Patrick. We love this 1.2 oz MTN XL Hybrid Ripstop for making hammocks and we're glad it turned out well! Happy Hammocking!
