    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.

Great Product

Perfect for the outdoor project I'm creating. Its holding up from heavy and even little small twigs from trees during the rain storm. Very lightweight but durable.

Sharon Gallogly
great product

The material works great as a rain proof rain skirt for my husband to use when he backpacks. Since it works so well his friends have asked me to make one for them.

Thanks for the review Sharon! 1.6 Silpoly makes a great rain-skirt and we are glad it works great! Soon you'll be having everyone ask you to make them one. Thanks again!

Dennis Young

Stuff feels good. Haven’t yet had a chance to make a rain coat with it.

Thanks for the review Dennis! We hope when you get a chance to make the rain coat it comes out great. If you need any help feel free to reach out to us!
