  • Placing a wholesale order shouldn't  be hard, so we made it easy...

    IMPORTANT  - Discount codes are   not allowed  for any wholesale purchase. If you use a discount code, the portion applied to any wholesale line item will be added back to the shipping invoice we send you. 

    NOTE - This is a   full roll  of 1.4 oz 10D Waterproof/Breathable (50 yds). Looking for smaller amounts? Click   HERE for sales by the yard. 


    Waterproof/Breathable (aka WPB) fabric is exactly what the name implies - both waterproof AND breathable. To achieve this, WPB fabric uses a specially formulated laminate film that is highly resistant to water droplet penetration (i.e. rain) while also allowing moisture vapor (i.e. sweat) to pass through and escape.

    Ultralight. Our 10 Denier WPB is the result of 8 months of development, testing, and pushing limits. While the even the lightest WPB currently comes in at over 2 oz, our 10D WPB breaks the mold with a finished weight of just 1.4 oz.

    Performance. With waterproofness and breathability rivaling or besting the name brands such as Gore-Tex and eVent (see full lab test data), you don't compromise on performance. Go lighter and be more comfortable doing it. 

    The combination of waterproofness, breathability, and weight make this material excel in ultralight, high-performance rainwear. This variant is a 2.5 layer ultralight WPB, so it's best used in applications where you want the lightest weight and best performance possible, but not necessarily the highest durability.

    Typical applications include jackets, over mittens, gaiters, pants, ponchos, bivy shells, and more. 

    *******************************************************************************************

    * Taping - For seam sealing, we recommend using our Cuben Fiber repair tape, which sticks quite well to the PU laminate. Seam-Grip can also be used on the PU laminate side, but is a bit messier and leaves a not so clean finish. For bonding layers (joints, seams, etc), we recommend using our double-sided Cuben Fiber adhesive tape

    * Cleaning - To ensure proper function of your WPB fabric, it is VERY important to keep it clean on both the inside (laminate) and face (10D ripstop nylon). We recommend wiping with a damp cloth periodically to remove dirt, oils, etc that build up over time. You can also purchase a product such as ReviveX Pro Cleaner for prep.

    * DWR maintenance - Another key to proper function is periodic DWR maintenance on the face material (10D ripstop nylon). Although we use one of the highest quality 80/20 DWR formulations, deterioration does occur over time. We highly recommend the purchase and use of a DWR restorer such as ReviveX Durable Waterproofing spray.

Made a rain jacket!

The material was strong and very easy to work with, using standard needles and good quality thread and a rotary cutter and fabric weights (press hard). Did not use pins, of course. I did not need to press seams or worry about cut edges unravelling, I sewed false flat felled seams and I did tape all seams at the end using seam grip + strips of material to cover the seam grip (a bit messy, buy seam tape instead! The material in 1 inch strips curls a lot when glue is applied).

I ended up using seam grip to put in two slash side pocket zippers, just like a commercial jacket, and that worked very well with zero sewing. The largest challenge was finding a pattern for a woman's raincoat with a full front zipper.

I have only worn it once so far, on a dry day hike and I did find it seals up and is much hotter than my cycling jacket which is windproof but not waterproof. However my new jacket weighs only 6.5 oz. (full front zip, side zips, lots of seam seal and full hood, large), and is much lighter than my current windjacket. The one less star is because it may still end up being not venting enough for me without pit zips... time will tell.

Better than expected

My plan was to make a poncho that also worked as an underquilt protector; so I needed something that was both waterproof and breathable. Originally I was going to go with 3.3 oz for durability but decided instead to go with the lighter 1.4 oz. No regrets! It more durable than expected and very light weight and packable.

Hi Philip, Thanks for the review! Based on the wording, I assume a 1 star review was unintentional? The 1.4 is a great material, and I'm glad it's working well for you!
