Use the following recommended layouts to make efficient use of your material.

Cutting tips

Cutting Dyneema can be difficult. You’ll want either a good pair of scissors, or a razor blade and surface on which to cut. When cutting with scissors, it works best to slide the scissors through the material as soon as you get the cut started.

Taping basics

Seams on the stuff sacks are taped using a 1/2” transfer tape. Transfer tape leaves behind a film of pressure sensitive adhesive when the backing is removed. Unlike double sided tape, no carrier material is present in the finished seam, only adhesive.

It's important to apply significant pressure before peeling off the backing

Thank you for your recent patience while I relocated across the country. I've taken this opportunity to change the way I handle orders. Moving forward, I will no longer take backorders, and only products that are in-stock will be available for purchase. This will eliminate the lengthy lead times of the past and allow me to work more efficiently. The downside is that I'll likely still be over capacity, so many items will be "sold out."

If the item you're looking for is sold out, please refer to the calendar below for an anticipated production schedule. Please understand that the schedule may change without notice, and that it's possible that some items, especially accessories, may be able to be squeezed in during pockets of available time.
