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.

While it turned out not to be the right fabric for my project (modifying an old dinghy cover to fit on davitts), I suspect I will find another use for this material.
Exactly as I expected
Product arrived in timely manner and was as described.
Used to repair spa cover along a seam. Appears ver strong and flexible. No signs of stress or wear so far after one month of dry, warm Southern California climate.
Great product. Thanks
I stumbled upon Eric's youtube video of the hot tub cover repair and immediately ordered this along with vinyl cement he used. We are so tired of replacing expensive covers every few years. I trust Sailrite. So we made the repairs and as he said it is holding on for life! Thanks again for helping us to solve another problem.
Great material easy to sew.
Excellent tarp fabric. I am covering the kiln at our Art Center with it.
Fabric was useless as the cement was useless.
