Of course according to them the material may weigh as much as 1.1 ripstop, so it may not be any better.

    Glad to see this hobbyist old-time shop, Kitebuilder, is open again. It was closed for months last year.

    Before buying nylon fabric of interest to kite-builders, be sure from the seller that it is not stiff, crinkly,noisy and brittle when folded coming off the bolt. Unless that is a finish and property that tumble washes out without damage to the fabric and loss of other properties you may want.

    Raiffnuke M50 Hammock

    Well I'd say if it has the top of line DWR then it's already better than 1.1. Plus given m50 is so strong as it is with ripstop it should be pretty amazing.

    Nice work, and beautiful stiching. I wish I was light enough to rock a M50 hammock.

    Thank you very much. I appreciate it. Maybe a DL M50 would work for you?
