Dyneema or Cuben as it was formerly called, is a laminated fabric with super strong Dyneema fibers at its core. Using Dyneema enables making high strength gear that is much lighter and thinner than ever before possible. Tarps, Ponchos, Gear Bags, and other items are being developed to fit into Wilderness Innovation’s unique product line. High Tech in the outdoors to “Simplify Survival” and make camping activities even more enjoyable.
There are three variations of Dyneema ponchos that we offer or will offer. 1)Composite or laminated (see bottom of page for test version). This fabric is not woven but is built up of layers that are then heated and pressed to bond into a fabric. 2)Ripstop fabrics that are made of a nylon weave with the ripstop grid being made of Dyneema to add strength. 3)Woven Dyneema fibers blended with another kind of fiber then woven in a traditional manner. Our new Xtreme HD is this type, 45% Dyneema, 55% Polyester, which produces a fabric with amazing properties. Exceptional strength while being very soft and draping. High abrasion resistance, almost tear proof, and highly cut resistant. Coated with a proprietary waterproofing.
