The nylon ripstop fabric is a durable and synthetic fabric that is perfect for all types of indoor and outdoor use. This fabric is 70 denier, 100% nylon, and 62/3” inches wide. It is a light-weight interwoven fabric, using special synthetic fibers to create a square like pattern. The special fibers used are placed within the weave at specific points, allowing for the fabric to have superior quality and hold against all types of wear and tear.
This fabric in particular is specially coated with PU (polyurethane). PU coating allows for the ripstop to be waterproof by using a seam sealing process (the process of covering the stitch holes and seams in a fabric to prevent any water leakage), withstanding all types of water exposures. Compared to many other ripstop fabrics within the industry such as DWR or Silnylon, the PU coating nylon ripstop has superior waterproofing qualities. Ripstop is also a very pliable and easy to use fabric, allowing for a great deal of flexibility despite having a soft finish.
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.

I am debating between a one a two star review here. I would encourage you to get a sample of this material before purchasing depending on your intended use. It is very, very thin. I would compare it to a cheap shower curtain. The grid design is very small, obviously hard to tell the size from the online photos. I was really hoping to like my purchase but should have done more research.
Awesome! You guys did a great job in getting my order out on time and delivered in a timely manner. The quality of the products ordered was correct and will serve the purpose I will need it for. Thanks a bunch.
It was good, I use it to have smocks made for me to work in. I am a groomer. It seems to hold up very well.
Easy to work with. Sews nicely. Made swing cover to keep dry during rain. Also made hooded rain ponchos. My husband needed waterproof bag for rags so he very happy I made him one he can carry on his back.
