Ballistic

Our 1050 denier Ballistic nylon is a tough, synthetic nylon fabric woven in a basket weave pattern, making this our most durable fabric.  This fabric is the top-performing choice for rugged applications where durability and abrasion resistance are a high priority. Available in black it makes a great choice for the bottoms of travel bags. Ballistic fabric originally developed as a material for flak jackets to be worn by World War II airmen. The term ballistic nylon takes its name from the fact that it was intended to protect its wearers from flying debris and fragmentation caused by bullet or artillery shell impacts.  Some references of ballistic fabric describe the weave of the fabric and not the actual yarns. This fabric is machine washable but must be line dried. This fabric is not designed to be left in direct sunlight for extended periods.
