I know that all of my paragliding and climbing gear has been made with known and tested materials. There are a few companies that use lesser materials but all of the big players have a reputation on the line and can't afford the bad publicity (or just for the ethical reasons of not killing people) of not using properly rated materials.
Pretty much every climbing harness out there is made with needle woven webbing which is not critical use. This includes most of the big players. Many of the paragliding harnesses are the same. I would look at the webbing again at your climbing and paraglider gear.
