1050 Denier Ballistic Nylon – Black 60″

What is it?

1050 denier ballistic nylon fabric is made from a synthetic fiber called nylon or polyamide. First of all, originally used as flak jackets in World War II, the fabric is referred to as ballistic because it was to deflect or stop shrapnel and debris. As a result, it was primarily worn by airmen, and was never intended to stop a bullet or a shell. Ballistic Nylon, or Nylon in general, has good resistance to chemicals.

Considered a heavy-weight nylon fabric, hence 1050 denier ballistic nylon weighs roughly 15 oz/yd. 1050 denier ballistic nylon is dyed black, and poly-urethane coated on one side while roughly 60″ wide. Nylon in general has high tensile strength and excellent abrasion resistance. While the poly-urethane coating adds water repellent properties.

As a result, use 1050 denier ballistic nylon for:

  • Luggage
  • Cave backpacks
  • Motorcycle chaps and jackets
  • Kayaks
  • Tool belts
  • Police belts
  • Much more

Furthermore, due to the cost of our 1050 denier ballistic nylon, some consequently prefer to use the 1680 ballistic nylon fabric due to its weight and construction.
