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 110 denier, 100% polyester with a moderate stiff finish and 58/60” inches wide. It is a light-weight fabric with special fibers used within the weave at specific points, allowing for the fabric to have superior quality and hold against all types of damage and tear. This fabric is also coated with a nanotechnology film called DWR (durable water repellent). DWR allows for the ripstop to be water-repellent, withstanding above-average water exposures. The polyester ripstop is also very malleable, allowing for a great deal of adaptability. And because it is a polyester, it naturally dries quicker oppose to the nylon dwr, as polyester fibers do not absorb water. Alongside this, it is has a more distinct feel and hold, being heavier and having more structure to it. 

The polyester 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.

Available in many colors with thousands of yards in stock year round. Buy more and save more to take advantage of the exclusive quantity discounts offered on the ripstop fabric.

Great company to order from

Ordering from Fabric Wholesale Direct was quick and easy. My fabric arrived in less than a week and was exactly what I ordered.

I have not yet used/sewn my fabric into what I need; however, the service, tracking, and price are unmatched. The quality of the product is better than expected and I fully expect it will perfom in an excellent fashion once i put it to use. Godspeed Hippy

Polyester Ripstop (2.6 oz) - Much Better than Retail Chains by Far!

I recently purchased four yards of the polyester ripstop 2.6 oz. to get a sense of how well it would work for the things I typically do. I was pleasantly surprised. Not only is it a light weight, thin fabric; but it's also pretty dang stout too! I've used it in a bunch of specialty dog training bags, several custom backpacks; and a few women's wallets. It's pretty good stuff. I love how easily it cuts and sews; and how tough it seems to be too. I'll be using a lot more of it for a lot more items now that I know what it's like to use!

Great buy

We ordered the Polyester Ripstop for a canopy we are using on our deck, not only is it beautiful but was easy to work with to sew into the correct size we needed. Highly recommend this purchase to anyone.
