Consider These Materials of Sportswear Fabric


    Nylon’s Strengths
    Nylon for Sportswear Fabric is softer than polyester. Despite this softness, nylon typically has a shinier appearance than polyester.

    Nylon is stretchier than polyester which can be an advantage or a disadvantage depending on your use case. We’ll cover this in more depth in the next section on how each fabric reacts to water.

    Lastly, Nylon has a higher strength-to-weight ratio than polyester meaning that a nylon bag can often be stronger than a polyester one without being heavier. However, nylon isn’t always “stronger” than polyester.

    Polyester’s Strengths
    Polyester has a finer thread so it can be woven with a higher thread count without increasing the thickness of the fabric which can partially make up for the lower strength-to-weight ratio.

    Polyester also is more abrasion resistant than nylon. A polyester backpack will pill less so it will look newer longer than an equivalent nylon bag. Pilling can cause nylon to fray at its edges which can reduce the strength of the seams where the fabric is joined together.

    Finally, polyester is more receptive to color dyes. Polyester holds color better and fades less than nylon when exposed to the sun’s UV rays. If you want a brightly colored or patterned bag, polyester is the best option.
