Invista’s Cordura brand and the global outdoor specialist Blackyak are pushing the limits on an apparel collection designed by mountaineers for mountaineers. The brands have expanded their offerings in the European market with the latest 2017 fall/winter apparel that was debuted at Outdoor Retailer and will also be showcased at ISPO Munich 2017.

The 2017 collection features insulation and mid-weight layers designed with Cordura fabric for enhanced durability and soft comfort. Pants, shorts, shirts and jackets engineered for use on the summit will hit stores for spring/summer and fall/winter 2017.

Inspired by the yak’s resilience, Blackyak clothing is crafted to withstand even the harshest alpine conditions. Prototypes are exposed to the extreme situations by the Blackyak athletes during trainings and on expeditions.

“At Blackyak, quality is key to the success of our products - and that means sourcing performance fabrics that we know can stand up to the test. Our 2016 collection with Cordura fabric was honoured at the ISPO awards with eleven wins, so working together again for the 2017 collection was top of mind,” said Max Nortz, managing director, Blackyak.

“When two companies with such similar brand promises align, it is amazing the magic that happens. Blackyak’s approach to product design and dedication to quality is uncompromising. Their decision to use Cordura fabric continues to be an exciting opportunity to take our fabrics to new heights literally and figuratively,” said Cindy McNaull, global Cordura brand and marketing director.

Select ISPO 2016 winners and garments from the fall/winter 2017 line were displayed at Outdoor Retailer. The official European launch of the range will be at ISPO Munich that will take place from February 5 - 8, 2017. (KD)
