Nylon fiber is durable, strong and a popular choice for webbing, straps, tapes and belts.

nylonNylon is a manufactured fiber in which the fiber forming substance is any long chain synthetic polyamide having recurring amide groups (-NH-CO-).

Nylon properties include:
  • Excellent strength
  • Flexibility
  • Toughness
  • Elasticity
  • Abrasion resistance
  • Washable
  • Ease of drying
  • Moisture absorption
  • Insect & microbe resistant
  • Shoulder straps
  • Harness webbing
  • Chin straps
  • Helmet suspension
  • Binding tapes
  • Lap belts
  • Shock absorbing webbing
