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.
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!
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!

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!
