Designs for Kevlar parachute component materials have been developed, including ribbons, tapes, webbings, tubular webbings, canopy and pack fabrics, braided cords, and sewing threads. Kevlar materials weigh approximately 13 as much as corresponding nylon materials of the same strength. This permits a saving of about 50 as the weight and bulk of parachutes made from Kevlar instead of nylon.
