Dyneema lives up to the hype, is is water proof, stronger the other options and is sew-able like a fabric. Everything comes with the kit, (except a sewing machine)
Ordered the medium and it arrived sooner than I anticipated. I followed the video instruction with this kit and it worked out really well. Came out just a little smaller than I had imagined, but will work well to hold a night's worth of food or maybe two if packaged carefully (I usually repackage freeze-dried/dehydrated meals into easier to pack ziplocs anyway). I may also just use it for holding my puffy, beanie, and gloves. I would love to see a "large" and "X-large" kit be added to the line-up on these kits so they could then be used as food bags for multi-day trips. A little extra tape would be great too on those for extra seam sealing for those who'd like to take the extra step of boxing up the bottom corners to create a flat bottom. In the mean time, I took the experience gained from sewing sewing this one and sewed up a couple more larger ones with some basic ripstop that I'll use for multi-day backpacking food bags and see how those hold up. Thanks RBTR!
I wanted to try sewing some DCF and this seemed a great way to try it out. I was surprised how easy it was compared to silicone coated fabrics and didn't take long to make at all. Although not very big the bag is just right for an insulated jacket. I'm contemplating buying some more fabric as soon as funds allow to try making some more DCF gear.
These were not so hard to make at home. In fact I think next I will try and make a rain cape/pack cover all in one and a DIY backpack as well.
Instructions were easy to follow, came out great and super light weight. Can't wait to get out on the trail and use my new bear bag.
