I used this Hex 2.2 XL nylon PU to make an extra wide, heavy duty winter tarp for my backyard hammock site. I live on a stormy ridge in NC with frequent 40mph and occasional 60mph winds. My 1.1 silpoly tarp has been torn several times by wind and my UL 0.9 silpoly was recently eviscerated beyond repair. The Hex 2.2 tarp is a little bulkier, 3 times heavier but much much tougher. The Hex 2.2 sews great compared to the lighter silpoly. For long distance backpacking, my 1.1 silpoly is a lighter option, although the Hex 2.2 is an option. But for my long term, exposed backyard site, I love the reliability of the Hex 2.2. Thank you RSBTR for great service, technical specs and a wide variety of quality products.
Thanks for your review, David! The 2.2 oz HEX70 is definitely more abrasion resistant and should hold up much better against stormy weather. Anything in the UL weight class <1.0 oz is more delicate and requires more care and precautions. We'd love to see photos of your tarps, be sure to tag us on instagram!
I purchased this as a tent darkening layer. I needed some thing that Would make my bright yellow tent dark enough for my kids to nap in there without making the tent super hot. I emailed the team at Ripstop by the Roll to ask what they recommend And followed their recommendation to get this. This seems to do the trick but the final test will be when we take it out this weekend.
We're glad we could help you find what you were looking for! Thanks for leaving us a review and happy camping!
Because the dimensions needed were not the normal size for a shower curtain, (108” high by 72” wide), I bought several yards of this fabric to use as a liner for a shower curtain in our newly remodeled bathroom. The fabric was easy to work with, all I did was cut to size, create the necessary hems, then hung it. Done.
The fabric is very light weight and dries very quickly. Perfect stuff for what I needed it for.
What a fantastic idea! We would love to see photos of your shower curtain, be sure to tag us on social media!
This Material is Awesome, looks fantastic, great to work with and does as described. Keeps the rain out of my tent :)
That is necessary! We are glad your tent project worked well with the 2.2 oz HEX70! We'd love to see photos, be sure to tag us on social media!
We needed to make an awning for our trailer. This fabric met the needs perfectly and was easy to work with.
Oh la la! That is a project we would love to see, be sure to tag us in photos on social media! Thanks for leaving us a review Tim!
