FAQs

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 the 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, and we not only use it for our pack body but we also use it to tape all the pack’s internal seams making them some of the most waterproof ultralight packs on the market.

How is Dyneema® colored?

OutdoorINK by Ripstop By The Roll (ODI)

Ripstop By The Roll uses dye-sublimation to color Dyneema®. Dye-sublimation is the process of turning a water-based ink into a gas that bonds with polyester fabric or other polymers. The ink (in gaseous form) permeates the fabric and solidifies into its fibers resulting in a vibrant graphic that never fades, peels, or washes off or out. This is all done with the aid of heat-resistant transfer paper and a heat press all operating at a very specific temperature and pressure. The outside layer of CT5K.18/blkwov4 (2.92oz) Hybrid Dyneema® is polyester and this is why the dye-sublimation process works so well.
