Hi Heath, Thanks for the review! Good luck with you projects.
Sews the same as Mara 70

It sews the same as Mara 70 with a 90/14 needle. A little bit harder to thread the needle though. Strength should be better than regular Mara 70, but I have not tested that in any meaningful way.

Hi Dan, Thanks for the review! The Mara 50 is a little tougher, but many machines handle them the same.
Top thread for outdoor equipment.

There's nothing better than Guterman Mara polyester thread in various weights for machine sewing outdoor projects ranging from quilts to hammocks and packs. It's strong, throws off absolutely no machine-clogging lint and it feeds smoothly. It is inexplicably hard to get hold of in Australia even though Guterman holds a large part of the market here for more general purpose tailoring and dressmaking thread. Ask the friendly local haberdasher to order Mara and they have never heard of it! That's why I'm grateful to have Ripstop by the Roll who generally have it in stock and postage times halfway around the world are not too onerous. But it's always worth waiting to get the best thread when working with expensive fabrics. Order a couple more reels when you order your fabric and you will never run out!

Great thread

I've been sewing cotton fabric with poly or cotton thread for years. This thread, with ripstop, is essentially indestructible. Using a seam ripper I had to basically cut every single connection to get it to come apart, whereas with cotton/poly I can cut one connection and "rip" 10 or so connections. Excellent thread, unless I mess up, in which case... I'd rather have something lighter to tear apart.

easy to sew and work with

I love my ripstop fabric and Gueterman? thread. It seems durable and hopefully when the crate pad is put to use next week, my daughter's dog won't be able to chew it up too fast! Thanks
