1000D Nylon

1000D Nylon is created by weaving nylon fibers that are then coated by a urethane coating (back) and a durable water-resistant finish (front) to make a fabric that can withstand all elements. This fabric is specifically tested and made to meet military specifications by ensuring fabrics meet tear and break strength, colorfastness, water repellency and more.

1000D Nylon is most used to create gear and tactical equipment for the military.

Some common uses for this fabric include:  helmets, backpacks, hydration packs, vests, combat boots, duffle bags, police air and sea rescue bags, K9/pet beds, equipment bags, gun cases, and tactical gear.
