    1.43 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  1.43  oz/yd 2  variant of DCF has a much higher Dyneema® fiber content along with a thicker mylar layer compared to the 0.8  oz/yd 2 variant. This makes it significantly stronger in tensile/tear strength, more abrasion/puncture resistant, and the lightest DCF fabric recommended for ultralight backpacks, food/bear bags, etc.

    Also great for ultralight yet robust rain gear, highly durable tarps/tents/shelter walls or floors, reinforcement areas, and any type of stuff sack or packing pod.

First experience with Dyneema

This was my first experience with DCF and I really liked it. Easy to work with, not what I was expecting. Service was great and the price is the best that I've found. Thanks.

Excellent weight to work with

I’ve worked with a few different weights of Dyneema now and I believe this was the easiest one to work with, made a great bear bag/rock kit. Plus had enough left over to make a couple wallets and a small roll top ditty bag! The fabric has a great feel




I love this stuff. Once you get a little practice and watch a few videos on line, it's easy to make a dry bag that would easily cost you $50 to buy from someone else.

Great for heavier applications

I love this material for food bags. It's still lightweight, totally waterproof, and tough as nails. I find that a 1/4 yd makes a nice size zipper pouch which is good for food and toiletries for backpacking trips. A zipper pouch is a lot easier to rummage through than a stuff sack, and if made with a Uretek zipper and seam sealed, it is weather-proof for hanging. This weight of DCF is a fair bit stiffer than the flyweight stuff which makes it a good deal easier to sew.

Hi William, Thank you for the detailed review. Enjoy the 1.43!
