New for SCHOELLER is the USP ULTRALIGHT SOFT PROTECTION-practically tissue thin-highly water resistant (passes the American Association of Textile Chemists and Colorists Rainwater Test), windproof, breathable and stretchy materials -a silky soft coating that adds no weight (less than 80 grams) to poly/cotton and poly/nylon materials...seven fabric types available in all.
