Below are the specs for the main materials used for my packs.
200d Ultra PE is woven and laminated to recycled, waterproof RUV film. At just 3.5oz/yd2, it far exceeds the technical properties of any similar weight fabric available on Planet Earth!
Tear Strength - ATSM D2261
Warp: 103.1 lb , Fill 133.2 lb
Abrasion - ATSM 3884 - 4,400 Cycles
Waterproof - 200+ PSI , 13.8+ Ba
The world’s most popular laminated pack fabric, X-Pac® VX21 is 100% climate neutral. The low-stretch, waterproof construction, featuring 210-denier face fabric, provides an ideal balance of weight and durability.
210D HDPE Gridstop
210D HDPE Gridstop. This material is made stronger and more abrasion resistant by an HDPE fiber reinforcement grid on top of the base ripstop pattern. The HDPE grid also yields exceptional tear and tensile strength compared to similar non-HDPE reinforced pack fabrics. This fabric is waterproof/non-breathable with a PU coating on the backside.
