I was expecting the fabric to be thicker and heavier, more like a waterproof nylon. Instead I would describe it as very light, like silk mixed with a rip stop canvas like pattern. The samples may be thin as a sheet of paper and semi translucent. Light passes though fairly well, but its not see though. The materials feel slightly plastic like but without the crinkling plastic noise.
I soaked them in water for a bit, pulled them out. They were wet on the outside but it didn't seem like the water was able to soak into the material. They dried fairly quickly, much quicker than nylon would have. I then tried to force air through the material, much like plastic it didn't seem to let anything though. Then I tried to tear it, The samples were not large enough to get a manly grip on, but either way, I don't think it would have mattered. It didn't want to start tearing anywhere and the threads of the fabric never started to separate. It slipped out of my grip before it even thought about breaking. Short of mechanical force i don't think you could destroy this stuff. I have yet to start it on fire, I didn't think of that until now. Nicholas Earl on 10th May 2016
