    epic

    Has anyone seen, heard of, or used a new material called "epic" by Nextec?
    Their website says it is Quick Dry Low Absorption Packable and Comfortable
    And is ideal for outdoor gear. Does anyone know the specs on the material?
    Or has anyone used this before with success?

    I have lots of military foul weather clothes made of epic. I don't have any specs on it but it has performed well over the last several years. One of my favorites is the level 4 wind shirt, wind proof and extremely water repellent

    Beware of the man who owns one gun, he probably shoots it well.

    It isn't a new fabric really, it's been around probably 10 years. You don't see it around much anymore. There's a lot of information on it over at BPL.
