About the Fabrics

For most of our fabrics (excluding some custom orders) we get our fabrics from Ripstop by the Roll and use there 1.6oz HyperD, 1.6oz HyperD XL, 17oz MTN XL Hybrid and 2.2oz Hex70 XL fabrics for our hammocks and 1.1oz SilNylon for our tarps and flys.

They list the weight limits on their fabrics as follows:

  • 1.6oz HyperD XL - 300lbs
  • 1.7oz MTN XL Hybrid - 400lbs
  • 2.20z Hex70 XL - 400lbs

These are estimated recommended weight limits. We have full confidence in the quality of these fabrics but, please remember, manufacturing flaws can happen. We do our best to ensure that every piece of gear we ship out is the highest quality, but you must always inspect your gear for flaws or damage caused by wear and tear. Whether you buy from us or not... stay safe.
