I've seen comments about product made from Cuben material that highlights its breathability. Below is a quote from the Black Rock webpage, as an example of those claims (I've only heard good things about them, so I don't mean to be pointing fingers, just want to provide a reference). Can someone explain to me how that is possible since it is essentially high strenght fibers sandwiched between 2 polymer films? Is the final structure in those cases micro-perforated, or something?
