1/2 oz. Polycarbonate Coated Ripstop Polyester on 11/05/2009 21:44:40 MST Print View

I checked out Hang em High fabrics and they had 1/2 oz Polycarbonate Coated Ripstop Polyester which is 3/4 oz coated. It sounds like it would be waterproof but to what degree. The 54" wide fabric is $12.99 but considering the weight this isn't bad. From what I have read polyester tends to sag less than nylon. At this low weight I'm not sure how well it would hold up though. Does anyone have experience with this material?

Oh well Its not waterproof on 11/05/2009 21:53:39 MST Print View

They got back to me extremely quickly saying that it was not waterproof or resistant. Oh well!

Has anyone tried the 3/4 oz coated ripstop from Goodwinds?

yard vs sailmakers yard on 11/06/2009 16:49:14 MST Print View

Just make sure it's a standard yard ... most Kite material is sold by the sailmakers yard.
