Our ultralight 15 denier ripstop polyester MEMBRANE 15 - now in HexCam® USA licensed camouflage. Like other fabrics in the MEMBRANE line, M15 RS combines breathability, wind/water resistance, and exceptional downproofing with the softest hand feel on the market.
To make MEMBRANE 15, we start with a custom woven, high thread-count polyester base material. Then we add a micro grid ripstop for improved abrasion and tear resistance.
Combined with a DWR (Durable Water Repellent) coating, the result is a durable, ultralight fabric with significantly less weight gain and improved comfort (i.e. no clammy feeling) when subjected to rain or highly humid conditions.
All this makes MEMBRANE 15 ripstop excel in a variety of applications including quilts, jackets, sleeping bags, garments, linings, and more.
We couldn't be more excited to work with the team at HexCam® USA to couple their unique line of camo patterns with our range of high-end fabrics! Read on below to get the HEXCAM® story.
The founders of HexCam® USA served and retired from the US Air Force elite TACP. Over their 40+ years of combined service, they've used a LOT of camo patterns.
Upon retirement, HexCam® was created out of a lifelong affinity for everything outdoors and keen observation of patterns that... wait for it... actually work in nature. The end goal was to create a highly functional pattern with utility in many different applications and environments.
HexCam® patterns utilize nature's own honeycomb pattern, coupled with unique application of layers and shadows to create a 3D effect that provides the user superior camouflage both close-up and at long range. Very similar patterns are found on a variety of animals in nature, most prominently in reptiles and lizards.
