1.0 oz ROBIC® XL is great for widebody hammocks, synthetic quilt shells, chairs, lightweight bags, or any application where lightweight, strong, and highly durable fabric is needed.

1.0 oz ROBIC® XL is WIDER than standard fabrics at 68" versus the more common 60" width.

Compared to similar weight standard nylon fabrics, 1.0 oz ROBIC® XL is both stronger and more durable.

The difference starts with the yarn. See below for a typical comparison between fabrics using standard Nylon 6 yarn and ROBIC® yarn:

ROBIC vs Nylon 6

Translation? ROBIC® fabrics are up to 50% stronger with 2.5x the tear strength. In other words, it's hard to break and tough to rip.

To reduce bias stretch and increase abrasion resistance, 1.0 oz ROBIC® XL also uses a diamond hybrid ripstop grid. This makes it easier to sew, increases comfort for load bearing applications (e.g. hammocks), and extends the overall life of the fabric.
