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.

"Bueno Bonito Barato" PROS: Functional, Good Protection, Good Quality, Well Made. CONS: None. BEST USES: Concerts, Very Convenient For Gigs. Comments about Gard Mid-Suspension Sousaphone Gig Bag: Good, pretty, cheap. A bargain! Lightweight affordable protection as an alternative to the (more expensive) Protec bag or a cumbersome hardshell case. Lots of nice extras: a handy pouch, leather luggage tag, two strap handles, removable shoulder strap, backpack straps. Note: you'll look like a mutant teenage ninja turtle with this bag strapped to your back! Also included for added protection are custom "mid-bag-suspension" foam inserts to protect your souzy in transit. You place the inserts at strategic points most likely to receive damage during a fall. It took me a little while to figure it out how best to place the foam (a diagram would be helpful) but now my Conn 14k is safe as a joey kangaroo in its momma's pouch. Initially I had difficulty closing up the zipper until I found the "sweet spot" for the foam inserts and until the fabric worked in around the sousaphone.
