Fabric Choices

Fabric Choices - In the past few years, the selection of fabrics for both tarps and hammocks have expanded dramatically. In addition to what I stock, there are vendors such as Dutchware, Ripstopbytheroll and various Outdoor Supply vendors where materials can be ordered from. For information on such fabrics, sites such as hammockforums.net and backpackinglight.com can give you access to hundreds of end users observations and insights.




I try to keep a current list of fabrics that I stock and their widths, but this list is constantly changing as fabrics come and go. Widths are measured before hemming.
