The Ottertex® polyester ripstop fabric is a durable and synthetic fabric that is perfect for all types of indoor and outdoor use. This fabric is 200 denier, 100% polyester with a moderate stiff finish and 59/61” inches wide. It is a medium/heavy weight, high quality fabric that is woven with special fibers that allows the fabric to have superior hold against all types of damage and tear.
This fabric is also coated with a PU finish (polyurethane). The PU coating allows the fabric to be completely waterproof through a seam sealing process (the process of covering the stitch holes and seams in a fabric to prevent any water leakage). Additionally, this fabric is 200 denier, making it thicker, tougher and even more durable against the elements. Even with its soft finish, ripstop is a easy to use pliable fabric!
The ripstop fabric can be used for kites, flags, banners, camping equipment, tents, hammocks, pants, sleeping bags, windbreakers and more. Ripstop fabric is extremely versatile in its applications and can be used for mass production or simple everyday projects.

Seems very good
I like the colors, they look as same as on website picture.
Awesome fabric and customer service
FWD offers such vibrant color selection of this very versatile PU Ripstop fabric. I experimented using this fabric as linings for my pouches and bags. My Bernina and Pfaff machines beautifully sews this waterproof fabric with ease. I was so impressed with the quality and durability that I had to repurchase a yard in every color. These photos are just some examples.
Love this material for bag lining
Fabric was just as described and it was just what I needed. Loved it
I have several colors of ripstop - PU (not dwr) and love it. It is sturdy, tiny pattern, rich colors and it doesn't fray. I use it to line bags and pouches. This company has free shipping on etsy! It's a win win!!!
I bought a ripstop fabric to make a raincoat for my dog. And it is just what I was looking for! Bright yellow color so it’s easy to see and water resistant as well. I have a 20 lb all black dog and this will not only keep her dry but help me spot her when it’s starting to turn dark outside.
