Dickies & Cordura show military-grade fibre at OR 2017
Jan '17
Dickies, the leading performance workwear brand, and Invista’s Cordura brand, a leader in durable, long-lasting fabrics, are showing the Dickies Pro with Cordura military-grade fibre technology collection, at the ongoing Outdoor Retailer’s 2017 Winter Show, from January 10 to 12, 2017, at Salt Lake City, in booths #10043 (Dickies) and #39213 (Cordura).

Crafted specifically for the skilled tradesman working in severe weather conditions, Dickies Pro with Cordura fabric is lightweight, durable, and six times more abrasion resistant.

Dickies Pro with Cordura fabric collection includes the field coat, that is built with multiple pockets including tech-friendly components and square quilted Thinsulate DWR (durable water repellent) insulation for lightweight warmth to cut through the most bitter wind and rain. It also includes the bomber jacket that features military-inspired interior camouflage print, a removable insulated hood, a headphone stabiliser bungee, adjustable tab cuffs, and reflective accents to dial up visibility. It also comes with the Ripstop Pant designed to withstand gale-force winds with reinforced stress points for added durability, FLEX fabric (2 percent spandex) for exceptional mobility, cargo pockets designed for specific tools and double knees to accommodate kneepads.

The collection is built with the latest in fabric and apparel technology to help it stand up to the most challenging weather conditions. The Cordura military-grade component is Invista’s patent-panding T420HT fibre and cotton-rich ripstop fabric that combine to form the latest-generation Cordura NYCO (nylon/cotton) fabric technology. Cordura NYCO fabric provides innovative performance, lightweight comfort, and exceptional abrasion resistance. With the further addition of FLEX (2 per cent spandex), the collection notably features a special tri-blend construction.

Brian Sheedy, SVP merchandising and design, Williamson-Dickie Mfg. Co. said, “We designed this collection with Cordura fibre technology in order to redefine the ultimate extreme-weather workwear to meet the reality of our workers’ environmental demands.”

Cindy McNaull, global brand and marketing director for Cordura brand said, “The heritage of the Cordura brand dates back half a century when we first began developing fibres and fabrics for the military. We are excited to collaborate with Dickies as it debuts the first workwear collection with our latest generation nylon 6,6 Cordura T420HT fibre technology.” (GK)
