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.
  • 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.

looks and feels great

bought this to couple with a 1.1 silpoly for DIY tent I intend to make for the summer. Quality and colours are best I've seen. Can't wait to finish it and take it out on a bike trip. Delivery to Europe was also quick, half the time you get anything from China. Thanks guys


Fast shipping. Material was perfect. Haven't made my tarps yet but should sew great.

Hi Jeremy! We'd love to see your tarps when you finish. Let us know if we can be of any assistance. Thank you.
Hammock tarp

Hi Greg! Sincere thanks for choosing us. Enjoy
Yet another hammock set up or two

RSBTR always has fast shipping and great products. I am working on making a full hammock set up for my son and was able to get it all in one order.

Hey Thomas! Thank you for taking the time to review our products! We appreciate it so much.
Good stuff

The 1.6 oz. silpoly was just what I was looking for. My pyramid tent turned out great. The material doesn’t stretch much at all and it’s robust. The accessory webbing and buckles etc. we’re stout and just what they said they were. Thanks

Hi John! Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. Hope you get some great use out of your tent.
