The Ottertex™ 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.

Love this material! I've made a few pairs of snowpants and mittens and the material is exactly as described! My young children are loving their snowpants and have had no problems with leaking!! Will buy again!
Excellent as always. I'm happy!
Great experience made a Grocery Bag will make more Thanks would like more colors..Thank You
Love this fabric. I will be making more bags with this fabric. I like all of the fabrics I purchased from you.
Love it !!! Great price good quality. Just what I needed.
The black was perfect. The pink had slightly less coating. The orange had almost no coating and was so thin. I can not take the chance to advertise my product, in orange, as waterproof. I will have to charge less. Your 70 Denier PU is thinner than theirs as well. Not happy. The only reason I changed from my other vendor, was that you offered great colors.
