strapworks 1": 11.1 grams/ft, 3500#
owf 1": 6.1 grams/ft, 2000#
Just got thru sewing the loops for my OWF polyester 1" woodland green camo webbing www.owfinc.com/Hardware/Shardware/webbing.asp
I sewed 3 box stitches per webbing. 24' total length
It weighs the same as Speer 1" poly webbing. Maybe 0.1 oz more.
This stuff looks really nice.
