The original specification for ballistic nylon was an 18 ounce nylon fabric made from 1050 denier high tenacity nylon yarn in a 2x2 basket weave. Today the term is often used to refer to any nylon fabric that is made with a "ballistic weave", typically a 2x2 or 2x3 basket weave. It can be woven from nylon yarns of various Denier such as 840 denier and 1680 Denier. Denier refers to the weight, not the strength, of the fabric.

Gard wheelie bag for low-A bari. This Gard wheelie bag is easy to maneuver over curbs and sidewalks. It's the same type of wheel and extendable handle as used on most luggage, so it's fine in the city but not good for a walk in the woods. The "backpack" feature on the bari case seems useless, as the straps are way below the center of gravity and the case is so tall it would hit every door frame or tree branch you walk under. The model for bari (Item #467112 940 3) fits my Yamaha low-A bari just fine. The foam blocks inside the case are covered with a soft fabric and Velcro which attaches to the fabric lining of the case, and you will definitely want to adjust their positions to fit your sax. After I repositioned the foam blocks, the case holds my bari securely, and the padding is adequate for hauling the instrument in a car and protecting against pedestrian-type bumps and jostles, but don't pile anything heavy (like other saxophones or amps) on top of this case, and of course, don't check it into airplane luggage. It's basically a gig bag that is reasonably stiff with a lot of padding. The 4 outside pockets are also padded, and provide plenty of storage space for sax neck, reeds, cleaning supplies, snacks and beverages, and an iPad, but not big enough for sheet music or my sturdy bari stand. The case stands upright securely and has no inclination to tip over. There is an extendable bracket that can be pulled out from the front of the base to give it even more stability. The bari goes in and out of the case from a standing position. It's a "top loader" -- the front flap is sort of like a drawbridge with 2 sturdy zippers that go down from the top of the case, and I've decided I like this feature as much as I like the wheels. No more bending and squatting! I have even started using the case as an instrument stand. (OK, it wouldn?t work as a stand for doublers, but if you only put your bari down during breaks, this protects it even better than an instrument stand.) The synthetic fabric exterior of the case looks the same as the fabric used on Protec cases, and all the seams and zippers are well finished. The fabric is not water repellent -- I just gave it the squirt-bottle test. I live in California, and we're having a drought, but if it ever rains again, the case came with a rain cover which fits snugly over the whole shebang. In the interest of writing a thorough (but long) review, I just sprayed the rain jacket, and it seems as water repellant as my best rain poncho. My only wish is that there would be one more handle on the front of the bag, below the zippers. This would make it even easier to heft up stairs or into cars. This bag suits my needs, and I think it's good value for the price.
