Apollo Weed Control Fabric Roll 50 x 2m
Worse than useless- do not buy
This product is thin and flimsy which is maybe forgivable at the price. What is not forgivable is that it does nothing to stop weeds coming through, in fact it helps - the weeds seem to cling into the material itself.
At least with a normal 'useless' product, you can just stop using it and switch to a better one, but in this case it is under the gravel which would need scraped back again (which took 3 day to lay the fabric in the first place).
DO NOT BUY THIS RUBBISH.

Ordered this thinking/hoping it was thicker than it turned out to be. No information on website regarding thickness. Turns out it is 50g which is really light weight. I use this for planting veg through and, past experience tells me that, by the end of the season this will be starting to perish. If covering with something such a bark chippings I am sure it is fine, just no good for my purpose. Unfortunately I hadn't left enough time to order thicker membrane from on-line company so have had to use it but will know for next year.

Beware - this stuff is USELESS
Laid this (carefully) under a gravel drive. Six weeks later, grass and weeds are back, clearly visible growing straight through the fabric itself, not edges or any odd hole.
A tad inconvenient now its got 5 tons of gravel on top...

seems to be up to the job
Some reviews mentioned that this is a thick, quality product. I decided to put it down at double thickness in my boys sand pit because to me it seemed very thin. It is close in texture and feel to a single ply napkin.
I can't comment on the weed protection level as it only went down yesterday but it is easy to lay and I was walking/kneeling on it as laying with no problems.
