I asked Hyperlite Mountain Gear to send me some samples of their Dyneema Composite Fabric and they said yes! In this YouTube video, I go over all of Hyperlite Mountain Gear’s Dyneema Composite Fabric samples which they use for all of the ultralight backpacking gear which is made out of the material.
I show you up close what DCF looks like, what it feels like, how see-through it is and how durable it is.
I go over all of the specs of the material in this, my second instalment of MaterialMondays which I dedicate solely to the materials our backpacks, tents, sleeping bags, rain gear, waterproof items and stuff sacks are made out of.
In this video, I give you a close look at HMGs selection of Dyneema Composite Fabrics (previously known as Cuben Fibre) and explaining its properties with close-ups of the material swatches showing you the Dyneema threads inside.
Thank you so much Hyperlite Mountain Gear for sending me these Dyneema Composite samples, I’ve learned a lot about DCF and what’s on offer and it’s really helped me understand the material in much more detail.
