In keeping with the brand’s ‘Durable Fabrics for Durable People’ focus, CORDURA Lite Plus fabric, the innovative new addition to the CORDURA fabric portfolio, will debut at this year’s Outdoor Retailer Summer Market, July 31-August 3, 2013, in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Constructed from INVISTA’s family of highest tenacity Type 749 nylon 6,6 air bag technology fibers, CORDURA Lite Plus fabrics are available in 210, 315, 420 and 525 denier (235, 350, 470 and 585 dtex) offerings. 

As compared with the brand’s current Type 725 Lite range, CORDURA Lite Plus fabrics offer up to 2X increased filament density and lower denier per filament with increased/inherent higher coverage factor in weaving resulting in:

- Smoother/softer more supple fabric hand
- Tighter packing in weaving with less space/gaps for water or air leakage
- Ability to achieve equivalent hydrostatic results with less coating
- Ability to be packed or folded to fit smaller radius or seam

CORDURA Lite Plus fabrics also offer >12% improvement in tensile strength compared to current Type 725 based CORDURA Lite fabrics and provide significant performance advantage in fabric tensile and tear strength compared to fabrics made with normal tenacity yarns.

“Our CORDURA brand DNA is built around pushing the boundaries of fabric durability,” said Cindy McNaull, global CORDURA brand and marketing director. “Based on consistent input from our global outdoor gear and travel customers, we know they are looking for lighter fabrics that won’t sacrifice durability and performance.

"Our technical team worked with our valuable fabric mill teams to create high-performance fabrics that meet these requirements and live up to our decades-long standard of durable, versatile, and reliable fabric performance.”

Current constructions of CORDURA Lite Plus fabrics include lightweight rip stops, dobby, plain and ballistic weaves, and are targeted at end-use applications such as technical packs, daypacks, messenger bags and luggage. Products showcasing CORDURA Lite Plus fabric are in development and will be available as early as 2014.
