As per the norm, my order arrived in a few days and I couldn't be happier with the products I've ordered. I am now and will always be a loyal and happy customer of Ripstopbytheroll
Strong webbing perfect for packs, bags and tarp tie outs or anywhere you might need something stronger than grosgrain.
Little tough to sew through the machine and cut but figured it out on a couple practice runs. Will use this on my next pack once I finish my prototype.
I've already sewn most of it with mara 50 as the initial thread. It sews easily to urethane-coated nylon, but is a bit slippery. The only caution I have is that the stuff is rather soft, and doesn't give the bending and torsional resistance of most polyester and nylon webbing. Using it for pack straps seems like massive overkill, and I haven't tested it in buckles (the better 5/8" buckles have a tensile strength of 150 lbs). I'm using it in an application where high strength is needed; I finish each sewn junction by hand-sewing with 100-300 lb spectra fishing line, and that sewing is easy due to the softness.
