As a man in my mid 30s, I've only sewn once of twice up to this point in my life. I got a wild hair to learn how to sew my own gear and stumbled upon Ripstop by The Roll (RSBTR) and this DIY kit.
RSBTR fulfilled my order super quickly and I was off to the races. I started with the HEX70 PU3000 fabric and a waterproof zipper (also purchased by RSBTR). Following the video on their website, I had myself a nice bag with boxed corners in a little over an hour.
Great experience overall. Highly recommend RSBTR.
Made a double ended stuff sack, a single ended stuff sack, and two travel sized pillows from the materials provided. It was really exciting to MAKE something, and I will be moving on to more complex projects from here. Great confidence booster. Thanks!
I knew that I wanted to get into making small pouches and packets and was dead set on buying a Dyneema zip pouch kit, but saw this as I was about to check out and ended up buying both. I had never really done much sewing before, and these materials gave me a great way to experiment! I bought some extra 1" webbing with my order and turned some of the fabric from this kit into a stuff sack with a handle and a carabiner attachment. RBTR is the bomb, and these rotating kits of mixed materials make it cheap and simple to try out new ideas and new fabrics.
I got the big idea that I could make a rain kilt. I ordered the diy kit along with my silnylon. Luckily I started with a small bag for my kilt, it gave a chance to work with the materials I would use for my kilt but also gave me the confidence to jump into making my own equipment.
Just the product I was looking for and for a great price!
