Venom™ UHMWPE Ultralight Webbing

$30.00 /section (25')


  • We searched far and wide for a webbing that was stronger, tougher, and  lighter than everything else. When we couldn't find it, we made it. Introducing Venom™ UHMWPE webbing.

    Designed, woven, and produced from scratch by us, Venom™ webbing uses one of the world's strongest fibers (UHMWPE) to yield a webbing that's super light, crazy strong, and more abrasion resistant than common nylon and polyester webbing.

    Simply put, our Venom UL webbing is perhaps the lightest, most durable load bearing webbing on the market

    At 2.2 grams per foot and 1800 pounds in breaking strength (*1" variant), it's a whopping 76% lighter than our standard 1" polyester webbing with the same strength.

    Coupled with an ultra tight weave and solution dyed yarn, you get maximum durability and jet black color that won't rub off or fade quickly with UV exposure. 

    Venom™ webbing has been tested and approved for use as sewn tree straps in hammock suspension using various knots like the marlinspike hitch and beckett hitch. It  works equally well as a tree hugger.

    * Note  - All sections of Venom™ webbing are sold in pre-cut 25 ft section and not continuous. For example, buying a qty of "2" 25 ft sections will result in two separate 25 ft sections.

    IMPORTANT - If you're ordering multiple sections and need a single continuous piece, please put a note on your order and we'll cut it continuous (* 100 ft max continuous cut).

Excellent Except

Light, strong, secure in buckles and cams, and adds little bulk in seams. However, it is difficult to cut with scissors or rotary cutters, and a hot knife does not cut cleanly. Also, it tends to slip when sewing making clips or basting tape a necessity. My sewing skills may be the problem, but some RBTR recommended methods will help. I am using it in my current project and will use it in the future.

Thanks for your review! Make sure to always sharpen your scissors and change your rotary cutter blades, the UHMWPE can be difficult to get through. Happy Making!

Epic stuff.

This is one of the most ideal weight to strength ratio webbing I've seen. I bought it as hammock straps and they've been working tremendously. I cut the 25' length in half and then sewed a loop into one end on each cut. I use the beckett hitch knot with my continuous loop hammock ends and it's working amazingly. Gotten some good use out it already and there's hardly any wear. Thanks RSBTR!

Thanks so much, Keaton! We're glad you love it as much as we do, Happy Hammocking!

Venom Webbing - great stuff.....discontinued???

I was disappointed to see that this has been discontinued. Will there be a comparable replacement for this ultralight webbing?

Hey Erin! We are definitely not getting rid of the Venom™ UHMWPE Ultralight Webbing! It is back in stock now :)

Right stuff at the right time!

My wife does the sewing for our DIY products. To date we have converted 2 down mummy sleeping bags into under and top quilts and currently converting a poncho liner into a spring/fall top quilt. We find it very convenient to shop RBTR. The material, and other necessary webbing and fasteners are top of the line. Very easy to order and delivered in a timely manner. Thanks for being there.

Thanks for your support Bob! We are glad to hear you and your wife have been busy planning and sewing your own projects! Let us know if you ever have any questions about future projects, we're always here to help!

Awesome webbing!

It's ultralight, got a nice tight weave and rugged appearance. Great for applications that need load bearing strength, or just the lightest weight. Due to the light weight, the webbing is less rigid and more pliable than other types, so applications that have fixed length will work better that those relying on a ladderlock or adjuster. Great for webbing loops, daisy chains and handles.

Thanks for all your awesome suggestions and feedback Eric! It sounds like you've already found a lot of ways to work with the UL Venom Webbing. Keep creating!
