I'm a backpacker but I used the venom pack webbing for a somewhat unconventional project unrelated to backpacking. I have a 1960s Gravely "mower" and these machines start the old way where you wrap a strap or rope around a flywheel and pull your guts out! Got tired of the cotton straps shredding and ripping after a few uses. I made a new starting strap using Venom pack webbing and let me tell you this stuff is very strong...no shredding and no ripping. I am very pleased with it. Thanks!
I like this stuff as it is super light and strong. Best of all, it has enough bulk to work with every buckle I've tried, so far. No slipping. Besides a hefty price tag, the only concerns are that it is tough to cut (requires several passes of a wheel blade) and almost impossible to prevent fraying at the cut ends no matter how much you try to melt it. Just give up and sew all ends under.
About to buy your UL line, and I would give anything if you would make the UL in 1.5". It would be beyond perfect for what I need to get a product line I have been wanting to launch for years, but have had no luck finding what I need. Until now we are only a 1/2" away.. lol
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.
