    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.

    Looking for wider, stronger, and more durable? Meet 1.7 oz MTN XL Hybrid - the latest addition to the Mountain Series line and built from the ground up to outperform similar weight nylon fabrics.

    We also did something that we've never done before - the hybrid weave.

    Essentially, what it means is that compared to many standard ripstop fabrics, we use a much thicker, stronger ripstop grid (120D) vs the base fabric (40D).

    The result is a stronger, more rugged material with minimal increase in overall finished weight...

    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 1.7 oz MTN XL Hybrid to be WIDER than standard fabrics at 68" versus the more common 60" width.

    1.7 oz MTN XL Hybrid is great for widebody hammocks, rugged synthetic quilt shells, chairs, lightweight bags, or any application where lightweight, strong, and highly durable fabric is needed.

    NOTE - Colors with a reduced price of $6.75 /yd are being phased out of inventory. Once sold out, they will not be restocked.

Easy for beginner to sew. Material has a good texture and very little stretch.

My first DIY hammock!

Super fabric, low stretch and comfortable! Haven’t sewn anything since school, still it turned out great! I had some shoulder squeeze in my WBB XLC, and the one I made has none! I’ve already ordered some of the 1.2 version fabric, looking forward to it. The import tax does make it more expensive but nowhere in Europe that I know of offers this fabric. Very happy customer!

Great review Tommy! We love to hear people starting out on their MYOGing and how we help make that possible. 1.7 MTN XL Ripstop Nylon and 1.2 MTN XL Ripstop Nylon are great options for hammocks. We strive to provide the best products and options that we possibly can, so we are happy to hear we were able to help you out!

Matt C
Low Stretch Material for Gathered End Hammock

I'm very happy with this fabric using it for a gathered end hammock. I have noticed very little stretch and I am a big guy. This material is good and light. I absolutely recommend using this material. I have only one complaint, very limited color selection. Come on, only Vader Blue, Orange, and Purple? I'm not trying to stick out like a sore thumb while in the woods.

Thanks for the feedback! We are glad to hear you love the product. We are currently working on restocking some of the darker colors so hopefully you can find something that works for you. Thanks again Matt.

Best Fabric for gathered hammocks

My wife and I both hang full time and the hammocks I have made of the 1.7 mtn xl has become both of our favorites.

We love to hear that! Thanks for leaving us a review and sharing how much you love the 1.7 MTN for hammocking. Happy hanging!
