Cordura fabrics were awarded for a wide range of performance and technical properties across several ISPO categories. Under Soft Equipment category, 19 Cordura fabrics were recognised as lightweight, durable, abrasion resistant, UV- protection, and waterproof.
Among the top 10 winners in this category is the recently launched Cordura TPX fabric by Chang Ho, which is a lightweight, specialised laminate fabric. Others selected as winners in this category are hardwearing Cordura Lite, Ballistic, Classic, and HP fabrics showing a modern spin on authentic Cordura bag and pack fabrics.

In the Outer Layer category, featuring lightweight but ultra-resistant woven fabrics that provide protection against the elements, winners include ultra-lightweight Cordura Naturalle fabrics all under 80gsm from Yoonia, LeeJo, and One Chang mills in Korea.

Under the Base Layer category, Cordura 4VER knits are latest addition to the Cordura fabric portfolio. Also selected was a Cordura Combat Wool knit fabric made using the new nylon/merino Cordura brand qualifying yarns from Suedwolle Group.

Spotlighted in the Second Layer category are fleeces, lightweight protective fabrics, and performance linings usable for maximum thermal characteristics. Cordura 4EVER wool flannel shirting by Chia Her was among the category winners, which provides enhanced warmth, comfort, and abrasion resistance.
