I'm sure this has been discussed in other forum threads but I can't seem to find a conclusive answer. How can I tell which of my products has Dyneema 400d v 200d? Let me say though up front that it really doesn't matter, it really just curiosity that leads me to ask for clarification.
I've looked at the items that I have containing dyneema either as an internal fabric or an external and I really can't seem to tell the difference between them. Such as:
Tri-Star - Internal Steel Dyneema
Aeronaut - Internal UV Dyneema
Ristretto - Internal Solar Dyneema
Zephyr - Internal Wasabi Dyneema
Synapse 25 - Internal Iberian Dyneema
Side Effect - Internal Solar Dyneema
Travel Trays - External Nordic/UV/Iberian Dyneema
Aeronaut Packing Cube Backpack - External Steel Dyneema
Tri-star Packing Cube Backpack - External Steel Dyneema
Small Yarn Stuff Sack - External Solar Dyneema
Large Shop Bag - External Nordic Dyneema
I also have three 16 inch dyneema key straps in UV, Wasabi and Solar. These strangely are the only items where the fabric 'feels' thinner. I can't really tell a difference in any of the actual bag products above.
Its not likely that they are all 400d are they? I had thought I read that Nordic only came in 400d and Solar only in 200d yet they don't seem any different to me.
Lastly, and this could be me getting a little obsessed with this idea, I did wonder if the white squares in 400d were slightly bigger than the 200d? I think the squares in my Nordic fabric are very slightly bigger but I may be imaging it.
Any thoughts anyone?
Thanks in advance.
