What is Dyneema®

Dyneema® Composite Fabric (formerly Cuben Fiber), is a patented, high-end laminate fabric constructed from non-woven composites utilizing space-age DSM Dyneema fibers. Dyneema® offers an unmatched strength to weight ratio and is  15x strong than steel. Dyneema® is a perfect choice for any ultralight camping and hiking gear such as backpacks, stuff sacks and dry bags.

Why we only use Dyneema® composite fabrics

Dyneema® composite material is the strongest and most waterproof material in the ultralight hiking industry today. Combined with this we take special care when taping all the internal seams of our packs making them some of the most waterproof ultralight pack on the market.

OutdoorINK by Ripstop By The Roll (ODI)

How do you get the colors into the Dyneema®? Ripstop By The Roll uses dye sublimation which is the process of turning a water-based dyeink into a gas that bonds with polyester fabric or other polymers. It dyes the polymer molecule, resulting in a vibrant graphic that never washes off. This is all done with the aid of transfer paper and a heat press. The outside layer of CT5K.18/blkwov4 (2.92oz) Hybrid Dyneema® is polyester and this is why the dye sublimation process works so well.
