  • 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/yd 2,   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. 

    Interested in what makes MEMBRANE 10® different from the rest? See below for additional info on construction/finishing, IDFL downproof test results, and who's using MEMBRANE 10 in their products. 

    NOTE  - Colors with a reduced price of $7.95 /yd are being phased out of inventory. Once sold out, they will not be restocked.  


    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.

Very light weight fabric

Very please with the product so far, I had fair warning that it can be difficult to sew and to use tissue paper as a backing. With this advice, fabrication went smoothly. I made the quilt 6' 6" long and used the entire 58" (minus 1 - 2" for seams) width for my quilt. Not sure if it matters, but I put the shiny side of the material facing the insulation. This material feels very cool and soft to the touch and the color looks just like the pictures on the website. The finished product looks VERY professional, love it. I am taking my hiking quilt on a section hike of the AT next week and will field test the quilt. Quilt weight in at less than 1.5 lbs and I expect it to be good down (pun not intended) to 30 degrees.

Great fabric and fast shipping!

I used this material to make a down quilt. It is exactly what I was looking for. I couldn't be happier with the finished product

raincoat

I have been looking FOR YEARS for a light weight waterproof material not to go up the himalayas but to cycle under eventual heavy rain in Paris! I have been reading ALL the comments ( I don't understand everything because some are highly specific and detailed but I hope I have found THE miracle material I was looking for ( totally waterproof light weight for an ELEGANT raincoat I designed ( made one for my daughter and her friends asked her which "trade mark" it was!) meant to be folded in the handbag in case of heavy shower for cyclist and the extra luck is to see so many beautiful colors! Impossible to find such thing in our backward France and even in rainy England... Please confirm it will be suitable for my project! THANKS

Awesome material

I used this on a lightweight quilt with the apex insulation. This material looks like plastic, and is very translucent, but it really soft and feels comfortable next to the skin.

Thanks the feedback, William! Please let us know if you need anything.
