MEMBRANE 10® is an ultralight 10 denier breathable, calendered, and DOWNPROOF taffeta nylon. We developed MEMBRANE 10® with the goal of making a UL fabric that offers excellent wind/water resistance, incredibly soft hand feel, and tested downproofing in both lab and field use - all at a great price point. At 10 denier and a finished weight of 0.66 oz/yd2, MEMBRANE 10® is one of the thinnest/lightest taffeta nylon fabrics on the market today. A premium choice ultralight material for applications such as quilts, jackets, sleeping bags, garments, and lining material.

What is MEMBRANE 10® and what makes it different from other UL fabrics?  

MEMBRANE 10® is a 10 denier taffeta weave nylon fabric. The taffeta weave was sought out specifically as testing has proven it to be much softer and more downproof than other weaves, including standard ripstop nylon. By downproof, we mean the ability of the fabric to prevent leakage of natural down or other synthetic insulation fibers when used in an end product over time (e.g. quilt or jacket). Selecting the optimum weave is even more important for ultralight fabrics as it's inherently more difficult to make thinner, lighter fabrics with high-quality downproofing. In addition to optimum weave selection, we employ a specialized finishing process that is unique to MEMBRANE 10®. This process takes the taffeta weave and further improves both the hand feel and the downproofness of the finished fabric.

You say MEMBRANE 10® is downproof. Has it been tested in a lab? 

YES. Throughout development we've had MEMBRANE 10® fabric tested multiple times at International Down and Feather Laboratory (IDFL), the industry leader in down and feather testing. Based on our latest round of testing, we are very proud to report the highest possible EXCELLENT rating of 5/5 stars. Aside from being one of the only 10D fabrics we've seen with a 5-star rating, MEMBRANE10® achieves this high-level of downproofness with no silicone or PU coating on the backside of the fabric. In short, this means maximum downproofness, minimum weight, and no loss of breathability. 

Where is MEMBRANE 10® being used? 

MEMBRANE 10® was developed specifically for high-end, ultralight outdoor gear but also finds application in a variety of areas including high-end garments.
