Dyneema® Composite Fabrics Sold by the Half-Yard

When making or repairing your gear, you want a durable, waterproof material that will protect your equipment from the elements. For do-it-yourself hammock camping and backpacking gear, DutchWare supplies Dynema® Composite Fabrics (DCFs), previously known as Cuben Fiber. These lightweight, durable, and waterproof materials work well for various outdoor gear.

Why Choose Dyneema® Composite Fabrics?

DCFs offer several unmatched benefits, making them your best choice for camping and backpacking gear:

  • Lightweight feel: This fabric is 30 percent lighter than nylon and polyester, which are common fibers for outdoor use. Seasoned backpackers know that light gear is essential to any long trek, making DCF a great choice.
  • Strong fibers:  DCF is 15 times stronger than steel according to its weight per weight ratio. It is also low-stretch to reduce sagging.
  • Durable construction: For gear that needs to endure unpredictable conditions, durability is vital. Dyneema® Composite Fabrics are UV and water-resistant, and they withstand tears and abrasion.

Common DIY Projects Using Dyneema® Composite Fabrics

DutchWare offers Dyneema® Composite Fabric wholesale, and customers use these fabrics for a wide range of DIY gear for backpacking and hammock camping.

Gear Repair

DutchWare sells a Dyneema® tarp repair kit that suits multiple applications. The kit comes with pre-cut pieces of DCF that you can use to repair Dyneema® tarps and other gear like rain ponchos and backpack interiors.

Fabric tears can quickly reduce your gear’s usability. A repair solution like DCF is an essential part of any camper or backpacker’s toolkit.


DCF is a great solution if you need a tarp to cover your hammock while sleeping or want to protect other pieces of gear from the rain. DutchWare also sells Dyneema® Composite Fabric Single Sided Tape and CT-PSA Tape for Dyneema® Composite Fabric to help you seal your seams.

Backpacks or Stuff Sacks

Dyneema® Composite Fabric can also be used to create bags like backpacks. Unlike other synthetic fibers, this one barely stretches, making a stable bag that helps you carry shifting loads. The wide variety of color options allows you to create customized gear you’ll love.

Ponchos and Rain Skirts

Since DCF is waterproof, it’s an excellent option for keeping your clothes dry on rainy days. Choose your favorite colors or patterns to create a poncho or rain skirt.


You can even consider Dyneema® Composite Fabric for other types of clothing. The fabric is lightweight, breathable, and resistant to the elements, which makes it a good choice for jackets and other outerwear.
