what can I say, if you are a bigger person, this is the material you want. Soft, strong, slight flex, but very supportive. It packs down super small as well. 12ft hammock packed down to softball size. I don't have a scale, so not sure how much it weighs, but its pretty light.
The material is not super slippery. It does have some texture and sewing is fairly easy. I wouldn't say that the tear strength is not super high. I can rip a cut in the fabiric by hand with medium force. The fabric is hydrophobic and seems breathable and like most breathable fabrics, long exposure to water will allow minor absorption and sweat through, but acceptable. Water can seep through under faucet pressure, which is outside of normal use.
This stuff is lightweight but feels really solid and strong. Easy to sew and consistent throughout. Love it!!
Ripstop By The Roll is my go to for making my own camping equipment. I love the new hammock I made with supplies I got from RSBTR. Quick shipping too
My first purchase from Ripstop By The Roll and my order was received very quickly! The quality of the material is exactly as I hoped for and I can already tell it's going to be perfect for the tent project i'm working on. Thank you Ripstop! I'll be a repeat customer for sure.
