    2.2 oz HEX70 XL is a 70 denier  nylon designed specifically for higher strength, durability, and abrasion resistance compared to standard 1.9 oz 70D ripstop fabrics.

    Like the other fabrics in our XL line, we've custom woven HEX70 to be WIDER than standard fabrics at ~74" versus the more common 60" width.

    HEX70 XL is offered in two finishes (select from dropdown above):

    1) Breathable with DWR both sides - Widebody hammocks, bags, lightweight clothing, or any application where durable yet relatively lightweight fabric is needed. Uncoated but water repellent.

    2) PU3000/DWR& - Backpacks, robust tarps/shelters, bags, dry sacks, or any application needing a durable yet relatively lightweight waterproof material. ~1 oz urethane coating on back, DWR front. Highly waterproof and non-breathable.

    When ordering HEX70 fabric, please select your finish with the drop-down above.

2.2 hex 20 xl

Just received it. In the dark olive the thicker thread in the small honeycomb appear golden. The fabric has a bit of stiffness that will make it easy to sew, it is not too noisy when I run my fingernails across it, and it feels pretty tough and durable. Some light gets through it. Will make good gear bags.

Thanks for the review Bernard! We're glad you're happy with the product. This fabric is a great choice for gear bags, we would love to see your project shared with us on Instagram.

Great kit, made my first Hammock! Then made another.

I’ve been hammock camping for years using too short of a hammock. I wanted an 11-12’ but didn’t want to dump hundreds of dollars into it. I really enjoyed making this and took it camping the next 2 weekends! It was really comfortable. The next week my daughter and I made a purple one out of the royal purple 1.6 hyperD for her. She can’t wait till next weekend to use it.

Thanks for the review James! We love to hear a great DIY story especially when family is involved. The great part about making your own gear is making it exactly to your specifications and being able to enjoy using it just as much as you did making it. I hope you guys have many great camping experiences in your future!

2.2 Hex 70

Being a bigger person at 240lbs, I chose the Hex70 material for my hammock. It's strong and still has a bit of stretch for comfort. It's also smooth and soft. Its easy to sew on my old Singer 201-2 using mara70 thread. Well pleased with the material.

We're glad to hear that the HEX70 XL hammock material is strong and comfortable, and easy to sew on. Thanks for taking the time to write this!

Outdoor gear

This was my first time working with outdoor specific fabrics. I started small with a Fanny pack from LearnMYOG. The fabrics from rbtr arrived quickly and were a good match for my project. Very high quality and easy to sew. I’ll be back for more!

Thanks Jean! A fanny pack is a great project to start with. We hope it inspired you to keep making your own gear. Try some of our kits if you're interested in easy to sew projects. I recommend the tote bag kit!
