This stuff is a great blend of high-cost, slippery UHMWPE with low-cost, grippier polypro. Polypro on its own isn't very strong but it is very light, so blending this with UHMWPE keeps the weight to a minimum while adding strength. This stuff is very similar to Dutchware's Spider/Poly webbing but Venom hybrid is 1/2 mm thicker and less slippery. love the solid black color! Only complaint: I don't use 1" webbing for much of my gear. 3/4" is my go-to width for my ultralight gear so the only use for this is tree huggers or other straps. Would *LOVE* to see this with the same specs but in 3/4" width.
