Spectra - This is our
best fabric for building tough yet reasonably light packs. The
fabric is UV resistent ( Ultra Fabrics are also UV resistant ).
Keep your pack construction simple and it ends up pretty light.
This is a 3.5 oz full spectra weave laminated to a layer 1.5 oz
Non-Woven Dyneema Composite for waterproofness, structural stability,
and extra strength...... 5.5 oz / yard final weight. Gray
and white dyes only. This triples pack base prices.
Partial Spectra packs can be made however. Dye colors are gray
and white only. For a much more economical pack we are using mostly
Challenge fabrics now.
Dyneema - We have a number of
weights in stock up to the weight of X Grid fabric - mostly about
4 oz/yd. The excess fabric price is $35.00/yd

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
