Breathable, uncalendered 1.6 oz polyester ripstop with a DWR (Durable Water Repellent) finish. Natural UV resistance (i.e. resists color fading), low bias stretch under load, and quick drying qualities of polyester.
This fabric is specifically finished to give the softest possible hand feel for polyester. A high-thread count also increases strength and makes hemming easier when sewing.
Typical applications include hammocks, synthetic quilts, synthetic pillows, flags, stuff sacks, lightweight bags, and lining material.
