Just what I've been looking for! I love the feel and workability of this fabric. Quality stuff. Probably my #1 favourite for gear bags and sacks.
When I first made the hammock back in early April it was still chilly enough outside for jeans and a fleece top and my first impression was that it was difficult to slide around in the hammock to get comfortable. Since then, I've used it several times in much warmer weather with gym shorts and a t-shirt and been happy with it. This past weekend I took it to the beach and this material is absolutely fantastic as a summer hammock. Getting into it dripping wet with just a bathing suit and the material doesn't "stick" to your skin. There's just enough breathability to allow your backside to dry while keeping you cool but not chilly. I'm really looking forward to using it the rest of the summer for all my trips to the lake.
I made a nice pair of light weight shell pants out of this stuff. They're great! The texture beats typical nylon ripstop, makes for less noise when I walk, and this stuff is very easy to sew. It doesn't walk all over like slick nylon.
This was advertised as soft, but it really isn't soft. It really isn't scratchy either though.
In any case, I wanted a tough fabric to use as a top layer for some picnic blankets, and this material fits the usage really well. I hemmed some of this fabric on top of some 1.6D hyperD to make some lightweight, compact blankets that are waterproof. Best of all, you don't feel like you are sitting on top of a plastic tarp, but actual fabric.
Love this new fabric. Very soft to the touch and easy to sew.
