I used it for the bottom of a backpack I made. Held up well on my 1st trip with the bag. Easy to sew, but not to cut. Scissors & rotary cutter do not work well. I found a new razor blade worked best for me.
Thanks for your review Wesley! If you are having trouble cutting this fabric, look into a hot knife, they will change your cutting game!
Very interesting new fabric. Sews extremely easily. Cursory tests show extremely good abrasion resistance. Made a duffle and several zip wallets out of it. Dyneema fibers are white under black coating, so they will likely show as items wear. Some fabric pulling can occur at seams as fibers are slick, so you may have to adjust technique and allowances accordingly. Appears waterproof for now with an interesting technical appearance to the fabric. Holds wrinkles easily. Long term durability TBD, may have a propensity to form pinholes similar to other dyneema weaves.

Great strong material. Does wrinkle pretty heavy would like to know how to clean it up.
Thanks for your review, David! Unfortunately, this fabric does wrinkle and should relax over time and with use, but there is no way to eliminate them entirely. Let us know if you have any other questions about the fabric, we're always here to help!
