Jeez that sounds like a dumb question.

But I have 1.1 ripstop for DIY gear supply and it is very very hard to tell! I got the Olive color which seems to be shiny no matter the side. I have the shell cut out and I am getting ready to begin thread injecting. But I want to make sure I have the right sides facing outward.

Is there a test I can do to check which side i shiny? I tried utilizing the sun and laying eye level on the floor and flipping a corner and comparing, but wow, depending which way I move my head they both shine!


Does it matter if the shiny side is on the inside or the outside?
