1.7 oz ROBIC XL Hybrid ripstop nylon
Looking for wider, stronger, and more durable? Meet 1.7 oz ROBIC® XL Hybrid - the latest addition to our custom woven, lightweight ROBIC fabric line and built from the ground up to outperform similar weight standard nylon fabrics.
Like all materials in our ROBIC line, the difference starts with the yarn. See below for a typical comparison between fabrics using standard Nylon 6 yarn and ROBIC® yarn:
Translation? ROBIC® fabrics are up to 50% stronger with 2.5x the tear strength. In other words, it's hard to break and tough to rip.
We also did something we've never done before. We call it a Hybrid weave, and essentially what it means is that we use a thicker, stronger yarn for the ripstop grid (120D) vs the base fabric (40D). The result is a stronger, more rugged material with minimal increase in overall finished weight.
To reduce bias stretch and increase abrasion resistance, 1.7 oz ROBIC® XL Hybrid also uses a diamond hybrid ripstop grid. This makes it easier to sew, increases comfort for load bearing applications (e.g. hammocks), and extends the overall life of the fabric.
Like the other fabrics in our XL line, we've custom woven 1.7 oz ROBIC® XL Hybrid to be WIDER than standard fabrics at 68" versus the more common 60" width.
1.7 oz ROBIC® 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.
