Full Spectra - This is our best fabric for building tough yet reasonably light packs. The fabric is UV resistent . Keep your pack construction simple and it ends up pretty light. This is a 3.5 oz full spectra weave laminated to a tough layer of mylar for waterproofness, structural stability, and extra strength...... 5.5 oz / yard final weight. Dyed to your color choice. This doubles pack base prices plus 10% . Partial Spectra packs can be made however.

Hybrid Composite Dyneema - We have a number of weights in stock up to the weight of X Grid fabric.

Spectra 'Grid' w 140 high tenacity nylon 3.8 oz/yd - 1/4" grid: Gray color. This is a very nice fabric for the lightest packs.

400D Grid Black - This is a very nice fabric very similar in weight to 500 cordura ( 6 to 7 oz./yard ) but with a tight smooth finish like X Grid. Like 500 Cordura, it is quite strong even without the white Grid. This is a very nice fabric for slightly heavier than medium weight packs for somebody that does not want to sacrifice durability.

Spectra Grid / 500D Cordura 1/4" grid - black - 7.4 oz/yd -

630 high tenacity fabric: Black, with a slight brownish bear-like tint. Used for non-Spectra extra tough bottoms. 1000D weight yet smooth like 420. - 9 oz/yd

Below: an example of Dyed Full Spectra. All of our Full Spectra Fabrics can be custom dyed.

The rectangular GRID in our grid fabrics for light packs is made with 'A highly processed ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene' (UHMWPE). This is the white ripstop grid pattern in the fabrics. The fabric in between the little white squares is High Tenacity nylon of various weights and has a high tear strength on its own.
