CORDURA® Fabric Celebrates 30 Years Of Innovation

CORDURA® fabric, a certified product of INVISTA, is honored to celebrate its 30th anniversary with outdoor enthusiasts nationwide.

After three decades of solidifying its reputation as the durable material of choice for high performance gear and apparel, CORDURA® fabric, a certified product of INVISTA, is honored to celebrate its 30th anniversary with outdoor enthusiasts nationwide.

“I have complete confidence in CORDURA® fabrics, and I am honored to be a part of the 30th anniversary of such a trusted brand,” says 20,000 miler Justin “Trauma” Lichter. “CORDURA® fabric is the toughest material available on the market, which is why I’m glad it’s the main component in my backpack, stuff sacks and shelter, as well as in Yoni’s dog pack.”

CORDURA® fabric has influenced the outdoor market for many years, which in turn has led to great innovations within the industry, including the recently launched CORDURA® NYCO knit fabric. By combining two of its most popular materials, nylon and cotton, INVISTA has managed to create a revolutionary knit that has superior moister management properties allowing it to dry two-and-a-half times faster than 100 percent cotton t-shirts. As expected from the CORDURA® brand, the knit provides unparalleled durability, along with other important features such as breathability and maximum comfort to wearers.

We have worked hard to build a reputation as the premier fabric for high-performance materials,” says Bill Colven, global business director, CORDURA® brand. “As we celebrate our 30th anniversary, it brings us great pleasure to continue to offer pioneering products, like CORDURA® NYCO fabric, to meet the needs of outdoor enthusiasts.”

CORDURA® is the registered trademark of INVISTA for durable fabrics. Known for its resistance to abrasions, tears and scuffs, CORDURA® fabric is used in a wide range of products, including luggage, backpacks, boots, military wear and performance apparel. For more information, visit
