  • 1.0 oz/yd 2  Dyneeema® Composite Fabric (formerly Cuben Fiber). DCF is a patented, ultra-lightweight fabric made of flexible non-woven composite laminates which are reinforced with Dyneema ®  fibers.

    This fabric is costly and for good reason. It's   15x strong than steel  and provides the   highest tear and tensile strength  of any competing fabric on a weight-by-weight and thickness basis. Use only for projects that demand high-performance and the absolute best in ultra-lightweight, waterproof fabric.

    The  1.0  oz/yd 2  variant of DCF has twice the Dyneema fiber content and a thicker mylar layer compared to the 0.8  oz/yd 2. This makes it both stronger in tensile/tear strength and more abrasion/puncture resistant.

    Great for stronger, more robust tarps/tents/shelters walls and floors, reinforcement areas, rain gear, and medium duty stuff sacks.

    *Note that all DCF fabrics are  sold in 1/2 yd increments  to help reduce cost for smaller projects. Please enter a whole number of half yards in the box up top. For example, if you want 7 yds total, enter "14" in the half yard box.

Strong, light, waterproof, and cooperative to work with. Makes me feel like I'm crafting space equipment.

1.0 oz Dyneema Composite Fabric

This was my first time I sewed Dyneema fabric from Rip-Stop-By-The-Roll and I found it to be easier than most nylon fabrics I have sewn. After I purchased a large kilt from ZPacks, I read reviews commenting that the length was too short, so I sewed a 10 inch extension on the bottom. For those times when that extra length is too long I can simply roll it up at the waist . This larger size fabric provides a dry spot for a couple a wet log or a beach lap blanket for two. Now that I found out how easy it is to sew this fabric I know I could have sewn this kilt from scratch but having ZPack's kilt is a great pattern.


Hi Fred. Dyneema is an amazing fabric to work with! Good luck with your future projects!
Very nice CUBEN fiber.

I made a ground tarp to go under my tent or hammock. It cost me ½ of what the tarp made of the same weight would have cost me from a store online.

Hi Steve, We'd love to see photos of the ground tarp! You can submit them by clicking 'Projects' on the main navigation bar.

Great Fablic!
