    i've made a couple hammocks out of $1.00 stuff that was not ripstop, & they did fine.
    just check the weight to be sure it's near 1.9 & test it well at home.
    don`t leave the CREATOR out of the creation!

    Most fabric stores don't know the weight for the fabrics they sell...

    Its because most of them sell fabrics by look and feel, mainly to women for sewing clothing, draperies etc where the weight really doesn't matter.

    You'll learn to tell on your own eventually
