At a finished weight of 0.77 oz, MTN Silnylon 6.6 is the lightest, thinnest waterproof fabric we offer.
Woven from ultralight, 7 denier HT Nylon 6.6 yarn, it's almost 20% lighter than our MEMBRANE Silpoly, but with roughly 2x the tear strength.
It's also coated on both sides with a super high-end silicone coating for maximum durability and an ample waterproof rating of ~2000 mm.
If you want lighter gear with maximum strength that packs up smaller, this is the fabric for you.
Typical applications include tarps, tents, rain gear, stuff sacks, pack covers, or any application requiring a premium ultralight, water/windproof textile.
ULTRALIGHT NOTE - This is a high-end, niche ultralight material. When choosing to use it, you accept that all ultralight materials are inherently less durable than heavier options. Treat them with care and caution.
