In my opinion the Siser is the best i have tried other products, thermoflex, and some other generic brands but for the way the siser cuts and hot peels it is the best.

I use the Eco-Film from imprintableswarehouse.com            everybody says that the siser ezweed is the same thing, even the people from siser.  I am using it on t's, sweats, sports uniforms and motocross jerseys.  so far, it has gone very well.

Siser Easy Weed is 94 microns thick.....Spectra Eco Film is 80 microns thick.....
Both are excellent products but in my mind Siser is more opaque....If they are both made by Siser (and I do not believe this is the case) they are manufactured to different specifications.....And Eco Film has way more colours to choose from...

Roxanne, are you measuring with or without the liner?

I have eco-film and I'm pretty sure I'll be happy with it. I haven't tried it yet, but on the pimpashirt videos that use it, it comes out great. Josh did some demos of it too and it's pretty durable.

Those measurements are the actual film (no liner)....To state it another way Siser is 3.7 mils and Ecofilm is 3.0 mils...And these are averages as some colours will be thicker or thinner...And if you want a film that is softer look to HotMark 70 (cold peel) which is 2.0 mils....But to get that softness you give up convenience and opacity...
