I am surprised. Cutting the material with a knife especially a slightly dull knife which is not unlike the effect of anchor rope that is caught under a rock suggests the material is much tougher than polyester, but these are just impressions not controlled experiments. Perhaps the perception is wrong.
That was my thought as well. The stuff is so hard to cut, I find it hard to believe that it's not more chafe resistant than nylon.

But again, this is just my impression.
