What is CORDURA ® high strength Nylon fabric?

Originally developed by DuPont, CORDURA ® was used in tires by the US military during WWII, for its superior “tear resistant” and “abrasion resistant” performance.

With over 45 years of military heritage, CORDURA ® is now synonymous with “mil- spec” durability, widely used to make backpacks, tactical vests… etc.


What makes CORDURA ® “abrasion resistant” compared to other Nylon fabrics?

CORDURA ® uses “T420 Nylon 6.6”, a type of Nylon yarn that simulates the rugged, fuzzy texture of natural cotton yarn. This is called “air jet textured” yarn. The fuzzy texture will distribute external grinding force more evenly so that fibers are less likely to break.

T420 Nylon 6.6 yarn is a proprietary product of INVISTA Company; no Nylon fabric can call itself CORDURA ® unless made with T420 Nylon 6.6.
