Shelter-Rite® is a tough, waterproof, vinyl-coated polyester fabric with a matte finish on the outer side. This fabric is designed for high performance and flexibility; use for tough applications where high tear strength, high tensile strength, high adhesion and exceptional weather resistance are main applications. With a high abrasion and tear resistance, Shelter-Rite is perfect for chafe protection — protecting and reinforcing worn or stressed areas. Use Shelter-Rite for heavy-duty protective marine tarps, RV skirts and RV tarps.
Use with the matte side (smooth surface with dull, flat finish) facing out.
Pro Tip: For quick construction, use HH-66 Vinyl Cement to permanently bond Shelter-Rite fabric together. HH-66 Vinyl Cement dries in minutes and remains flexible. Sew for a neater looking finished product.

I like this stuff for covering my wood toerail and fenders, and as reinforcement in stressed areas of things like my dinghy chaps and bimini top. It's rugged, easy to work with, and matches linen sunbrella really well. My fender covers are going strong after 4 years in Mexico.
Spa cover repair
This product saved me hundreds of dollars, so I did not have to purchase a new spa insulated cover. I was able to successfully repair with this product I highly recommend.
Additional material purchased..as it is good quality
This product worked great
Haven't used it yet. But, it's here.
Waterproof, abrasion resistant, and great for storage bags
I use Shelter Rite primarily for storage bags on our boat. It is perfect for containing messy items (like a pump used for oils). I also use it frequently for waterproof bags for things stored on deck or in storage lockers. It is so abrasion resistant and yet is quite easy to work with. One side is flat/matte and the other side is textured/shiny, so you get a choice for the "look" of your project as well.
