  1. Question

    lindakaye06

    Is this fabric appropriate to make rain pants out of if you use a seam sealer product (I.e. is it breathable and waterproof)? If not, which product do you recommend? I have a hard to fit figure and sew very well.

      Xenon is waterproof but not breathable. You’ll want to use Helion for waterproof breathable rain pants: https://dutchwaregear.com/product/helion-half-yard/

    Great for tipi projects

    I was looking for a durable, light weight, waterproof fabric for a tipi project. My design was a 6 man tipi so stretch was a concern, and Xenon is very rigid. Sil Xenon fit the bill perfectly. It was tricky to work with at first due to the nature of the light weight and coated fabric, but once I got used to it it was good to work with. I discovered that it irons well at low temps making flat field seems a lot easier. The project finished out well, and after weighing in it came in at #11.2 with tipi, stakes, center pole, and stove. Tipi is #3.6. The fabric has had no poor reactions to heat especially at the cone where the stove jack is. I field tested it early spring at over 9000 ft with excellent results. Being spring it brought chilly nights, and non stop rain. Me and my boys were warm and dry and the tipi became base camp for our group since it is as huge tent. Without the tipi the trip would have been short lived since we had several youth with us who’s ability to weather rain and chill is limited. Xenon and other fabrics I got from Dutch met all my needs and expectations. Thanks Dutch for providing killer products and fabrics!

      Both fabrics are 20 denier with a ripstop grid. Sil 1.1 has a higher waterproof rating and less stretch than Sil Nylon.

      One unit equals one yard of fabric. If you order 2 yards of fabric it will be 2 continual yards of fabric.

      We do not recommend using this fabric as it will bunch very badly however I would point you in the direction of the sil nylon which is what our hammock chair is made from.

    Heyyo
    I plan on using this material for making a tarp,
    So wanted to ask if it’s possible to tape it, like DCF and so.

    Thanks 🙂
