    Shiny side...

    Looked through the stickies...have some 1.9 rip stop nylon. Sewing a hammock...do I put the shiny side out?

    I'd put whatever feels best on your skin on the inside. Not all ripstop is the same but it sounds like yours may be calendared on one side. I'd put the shiny side out.

    It's the outside layer of a double layer. The dull layer has better color (it's woodland camo). Just didn't know if it mattered. The inside is 1.1 oz, calendared on both sides.

    If it's the outside of a double layer then just go for whatever looks better. It shouldn't affect performance.
