Holy crap this fabric is the bee's knee's. stupidy strong and hard to cut. It can be done but with lots of force. Best pack fabric ive worked with
Though I have not used it yet, I have just now ordered more. I very much like the heft and hand. It is solid, not “plastic-y” and I have great confidence in the durability and utility! A great company, by the way!
This fabric does have some stretch on the width, not the height. So if you get a half yard to make a pack just know that you may have to get a yard so the weight of the gear is not with the stretch or you could bust your seams with the weight of a heavy load. Your stretch should be on the width part of your pack so when you stuff your pack it will have some give width wise not length wise. I got a half yard hoping the back and bottom could be one piece but it won’t work due to the fabric stretching that way so I’m gonna have to cut this in three sections and sew them together so the length doesn’t stretch. I hope that makes sense.
