    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 or products 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.

    Sold by the Half Yard. For example, enter a quantity of "4" to receive two linear yards of material, measuring two yards (72") in length by the listed width of the material (check specs tab).


    You might notice some new colors. We've leveraged our in-house print capabilities to produce and stock never before seen colors of ultralight DCF. These colors will be available by the yard right alongside the standard DCF colors like gray, green, and black.

    New Colors: Blaze Orange, Camel, Moroccan Blue, Purple Haze. 

    If you're interested in getting other colors of DCF, then check out our  Omnicolor services where you can print any one of our 1260+ RGB colors. See which color you want by consulting the  OutdoorINK color map here.

    Due to the nature of this material and associated processes, these colors might not be exactly the same as others that we carry. Please be aware of these before trying to match fabrics.

Great material for a bear bag. Thank you for the quick service.

We're glad you found the 1.43 oz DCF for a bear bag! It's super light but still so strong. Thanks for helping to leave no trace by storing your food properly!
