About Dyneema® Composite Fabric (DCF)
We use DCF (Dyneema® Composite Fabric) as the main material in the Shift. DCF is a patented, ultralightweight fabric made of flexible non-woven composite laminates which are reinforced with Dyneema® fibers.The fabric is costly but with good reason. It's ultralight, 15x stronger than steel and waterproof. Yet DCF provides the highest tear and tensile strength of any competing fabric on a weight-by-weight/thickness basis. It’s used in projects that demand the absolute best in ultralight and waterproof fabrics for high-performance activities.
Care Details for DCF
DCF is a material that is extremely resistant to stretching though more prone to piercing and puncture. Contact with sharp objects or abrasions in the same areas for extended periods can lead to deterioration of the fabric.
Leaving the material in a prolonged wet or damp state may lead to peeling or delamination of the polyester and Dyneema® layers. Please be sure to fully dry before storing the bag.
