Venom UHMWPE Pack webbing

$7.00 /section
  • 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.

    And the numbers don't lie. We tested our 3/4" Venom™ webbing to an average break strength of over 2700 lbs. To put that in perspective, our 1" polyester webbing has a break strength of just over 1500 lbs at over 3.5x the weight!

    If you want webbing that's lighter, tougher, and stronger, this is it. Period. Perfect for backpack strapping, webbing suspensions, pack loops, compression straps, carrying slings, etc. 

    * Note  - All sections of Venom webbing are sold in pre-cut 5 ft section and not continuous. For example, buying a qty of "2" 5 ft sections will result in two separate 5 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 ).

    Material/Yarn Venom™ UHMWPE 
    Width 1", 3/4", 1/2", 3/8"
    Thickness 0.8 mm

    Weight 3.25 grams/ft (1"), 2.5 grams/ft (3/4"), 1.7 grams/ft (1/2"), 1.6 grams/ft (3/8")

    *Usage with buckles: UHMWPE fiber is naturally more slippery than nylon and polyester. This combined with the thinness of Venom webbing can result in increased chance for slippage in some plastic buckles under the right conditions.

    We have tested Venom webbing with all our stock plastic side release and ladder loc buckles for a snug fit with no slippage under normal conditions. However, we cannot guarantee Venom webbing will work with ALL plastic buckles.

Good stuff, a bit soft

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.

Outstanding as Always

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.

Lightweight webbing

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!

Hey Chenkus! Thanks for the review. We are looking to expand the Venom line soon. Stay tuned!
Always top notch.

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

Hey Cheryl. Thanks for taking the time to submit a review. The venom webbing could be a great piece in creating a bridge hammock, as suspension or on a backpack. Thanks again!
