HyVent is an ultralight waterproof technology that ensures lightweight, packable protection that is ideal for outdoor adventures where you need maximum protection whilst taking up minimal pack space. It's created by applying a polyurethane coating with a DT print matrix, which acts as a dry touch half layer coating, to provide greater durability and comfort by separating the PU coating from the surface of the skin and eliminating the need for a liner. It can be used on its own to create a shell or with Polartec Alpha insulation to create a warmer garment.

Fab Shell is very soft but durable, and highly water repellent and breathable. Although it makes a lovely shell for outerwear, we can imagine a lot of great uses, such as making a bivy and other outdoor gear for ultralight backpacking.

Zen Shell is a high quality water-repellent shell with “memory”. This means that when creased, it reverts back to its original smooth finish with no wrinkles! Zen can be used as a jacket shell, as accent for tabs or collars, for children’s “muddy buddy” over-pants, and for many other applications where water repellency and durability are required.

Ripstop Nylon is a woven fabric, made of nylon, using a special reinforcing technique that makes it resistant to tearing and ripping. During weaving, reinforcement yarns are interwoven at regular intervals in a crosshatch pattern.  Our ripstop nylon has a DWR (Durable Water Repellent) coating and has been hot calendared 3 times on one side to meet 5 - 20 CFM.  We think it would make great stuff sacks or backpack covers.

Nylon Taffeta is a sturdy and durable fabric made with high tenacity (HT) nylon.  Our nylon taffeta features a DWR finish and it is laminated to a white micro-porous waterproof breathable coating.  This is a good fabric for kid's "Muddy Buddy" style rain/splash pants.

Ultra Soft Textured Junior Nylon is a lightweight water repellent (DWR) nylon with a soft hand.  It would make a nice lightweight wind breaker/rain jacket or stuff sacks or even as a practice fabric to make a muslin before diving into the more expensive shell fabrics, like Polartec Neoshell.

Mist Shell is a an ultralightweight water repellent (DWR) nylon that feels similar to our Aerospace Tek.

Aerospace Tek is a very strong and lightweight technical fabric that is moderately water repellent and extremely wind resistant.  The feel is very soft and feels great against your skin. It's an ideal fabric for making super lightweight/packable jackets or vests.
