As memory serves it ws also applied to ripstop destined for parachute manufacturing to reduce the porosity - this was before the days of specialized lo-po fabrics.
2Q, correct me if I am in error. My memory ain't what it once was!
I like the fact that this is a process done to the fabric and not a coating that was applied. It should last the life time of the material.
rip W, glad to here you got one. Looking forward to your review.
It will be interesting to see if you can get it to fit a bridge.
On my gathered end hammock, once I got the fit correct, I ended up cutting off about 6" of the shockcord on each end.
