    Can you tell what kind of ripstop it is? What application it would be best for?

    I'm pretty sure--historically anyway--Hancock sells uncalendared 1.9 oz/sq.yd. ripstop. I'm going to take a look at the sale right now.



    By the way, I see they have camouflage ripstop (Click HERE). That's hard to find. I don't know anything about it though.

    My forum name is Fish<><; I'm in the navy; and I hate sleeping on the ground. If I didn't need ground to walk on or measure resistance to, I think I could happily give it up.

    Thanks for the heads-up on the fabric. I just picked up 4 yards of ripstop in navy blue for an underquilt. Saved about $8.00.

    Thanks man.

    Pip is right. I believe it is 1.9. Fine for hammock use and what I used to make my wonderful air beds--- that is what I call my hammocks sometimes.
    ---is it time to get up to go to NC Hot Springs????? Wooooo Buddy
