It is heavier than the lightweight ripstop, so it is much easier to deal with. The LS-07 is a laminate, and has a ripstop as the "inside" layer, so it is a lot easier. Xpac is stiff, so it acts different than most other fabrics. Even stiffer than 1000 D cordura.Would this info for sewing be accurate to x-pac as well? LS-07 or VX-07 as examples?
