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.
Venom UHMWPE Pack webbing
Once again rbtr came through and delivered a great product with awesome customer service. This order came 2 days ahead of schedule and allowed me to work with other materials I ordered earlier. I finished my 1.43 dcf pack liner and a zippered pouch for within the pack it self. I will be ordering the rest of the materials to finish prototyping a backpack that will be 100% cuban.
Made a set of ultralight tree straps for hammocking... great at home but don’t want to use such a narrow webbing on trees in the park.
I’d love to see some 1” or even some 2” in this product!
I have bought numerous fabrics and accessories from RSBTR over the years and they only get better and better. The new venum straps and the UL Hex12 Winter tarp kit are my latest. 5-stars for quality and service
