When elite ice/alpine climber Angela Van Wiemeersch got her first 100% woven Dyneema®-reinforced Hyperlite Mountain Gear Ice Pack, she didn’t know what to expect. “The friend who gave it to me insisted that I take this pack for my expedition to Alaska,” she says. “I took the challenge, and that three-year-old pack that had already been across the world exceeded my expectations.” Not only did she put up the new route, “Thicker For Thieves,” on Alaska’s Mount Hayes, but she also “dragged it up walls” from Red Rocks to Zion National Park, followed by a season of climbing hard ice. Now one of the company’s ambassadors, she brings a Dyneema® pack on all adventures.
“Dyneema® is practically indestructible,” explains Hyperlite Mountain Gear CEO Mike St. Pierre. “While our existing line of ultralight Cuben Fiber packs are ideal for very active users, the Dyneema® line will better serve the most hardcore athletes who are toughest on their gear.” Dyneema® fibers are stronger than steel and seven times lighter by weight, and they are the fibers from which Cuben Fiber is made. It’s the foundational technology for all Hyperlite Mountain Gear products. But what exactly is Dyneema®? Learn more about Dyneema®!
