INVISTA’s CORDURA Lite fabrics were selected to help bring optimal strength-to-weight to Billabong’s Platinum Collection. The line, debuting in the United States in August 2013, features three backpacks and two travel bags for consumers who seek sleek, durable performance from their gear while on the go.
