    Default RSTBR new reflective stretch pocket mesh

    Has anyone seen or tried ripstop by the roll's new reflective pocket mesh material. The only helpful info RSBTR posts is the weight 7.1 oz per square yard. I'm wondering about the softness/scratchiness of the material and the stretch. I want to use it in a big pocket on a pack I'm making (pocket approx. dimensions 20" x 12").

    I know I can order a sample - I might do it, BUT I've ordered a bunch of samples for this projects and the cost of ordering samples has started to get to be more than I'd like.

    Something I noticed while quickly glancing this over is: "Note that this is a 2-way stretch mesh in the warp (lengthwise/running) direction. There is NO STRETCH in the width due to the non-elastic nature of the reflective tracers."

    This may or may not have an effect on your project. I've always used a 4-way stretch for larger front pockets like you describe.
