Tubular Webbing

Alternate styles:  Smooth weave , ribbed weave

Common materials:  Tubular nylon is a tube of woven nylon that lays flat and is typically as strong or even stronger than regular nylon, even though it is thinner.  It is available in many sizes and colors, and typically has a tracer of different colored webbing running down the middle.

Common uses:  From what we have seen here at, tubular nylon is used as a sheath for tubing, metal hardware, rope, and elastic.  The tubular webbing has a nice smooth feel, so using it to cover the previous materials listed can help protect your hands from getting raw, aching, or cramping.  Some people use it in place of rope, because tubular does not fray like rope or polypropylene webbing.  Tubular webbing is used extensively in rock climbing and mountaineering because it is very strong & abrasion resistant. 

How to use:  If you needed a strong support strap for general use, climbing, hiking, rafting, etc., then this webbing is what you will need.  It is great for tying and holding a knot, and the knot can easily be undone even after a great amount of pressure is applied.  There are many different ways that tubular nylon can be used.  For more suggestions or if you have something in mind yourself and need help "working it out" we can help.  Please contact us at

Common restrictions:  Tubular has a breaking strength that ranges from 1,200lbs. - 4,000lbs., it all depends on the size as well as the manufacturer.   For more information on the tubular nylon that we carry, please contact our friendly staff by clicking here.
