Pertex provides fabrics to an array of top outdoor industry manufacturers in the U.S. and Europe for creation of high-end apparel and sleeping bags. Pertex's outstanding reputation in the UK and high quality fabric offerings is what piqued Spyder's interest.

“We're pleased to be working with Spyder, as they are a clear leader in the industry,” said Steve Laycock, manager of Pertex. “The variations of fabric that Spyder selected for their pieces clearly shows the vast range of offerings in the Pertex Shield line.”

Spyder Active Sports, renowned for integrating high-tech fabrics, fashion and functionality, will introduce both the warmest jacket in the entire Spyder collection, the Men's Rocket Down Jacket, and the luxurious Women's Cloud Nine Down Jacket featuring Pertex Shield fabric for fall/winter 2011.

It is Pertex's innovation which has earned the company it's reputation with products such as Pertex Classic, Equilibrium, Quantum, Microlight and Endurance.
