The ZULUDIVER HydraRib model is constructed from premium high-quality 100% polyamide yarn, using a core-spun method, the durability of these straps has been tested and certified to BS EN 14362. The straps have a three-dimensional, multi-strand appearance and this inspired the name HydraRib, after the multi-headed creature from Greek mythology - the Hydra. A serpent with several heads that seemed to be indestructible until slain by Hercules – a fitting name for one of our toughest straps yet.

A core-spun technique was used to develop the nylon, which was then weaved using a precision weaving machine. A special close-grain weave has been used to create a three-dimensional pattern and feel. The webbing is then dyed and colour-fixed at high temperatures to ensure that the colour does not fade or lint after extended use. The end result is stronger than other nylons, as well as waterproof and washable.
