Invista’s Cordura brand and Crye Precision have made a new generation of military uniform fabric technology. The uniform will be shown at the Crye Precision booth #32403 at SHOT show in Las Vegas, to be held from January 23 to 26, 2018, and at the Outdoor Retailer + Snow show in Denver, to be held on January 25, 2018, at the Cordura brand booth #54037-UL.
Made from Crye Precision’s proprietary VTX Ripstop material constructed with stretch Cordura NYCO fabric technology, the latest G4 Uniform represents the next generation of combat apparel. It will be featured in the latest instalment of the Cordura brand’s ‘Meet the Maker’ series, which highlights the two brands’ longstanding collaboration.
The G4 Uniform features a slim-cut design for reduced bulk and enhanced wearer comfort under body armour. INVISTA T420HT patent-pending high tenacity fibre technology helps optimise the pants and sleeves for lightweight strength, and zippered shoulder pockets leave room for essential gear.
The G4 uniform’s VTX Ripstop fabric construction offers multiple benefits when compared to standard 50/50 NYCO Mil-Spec material. Driven by a 17 per cent lighter weight and 4x more breathable material, its comfort properties are key for consumers who are often wearing uniforms for long and demanding periods of time. In the field, its practical technologies include 3x higher tear strength and 60 per cent faster drying fabric.
Cindy McNaull, global Cordura brand and marketing director said, “We are excited to once again be working with Crye Precision on the cutting-edge of military fabric technology. The goal of our Meet the Maker series is to highlight the power of collaborative problem solving with our brand customers, and celebrate our shared values. This latest instalment with Crye is a testament to passionate innovation and our long-term durable bond.”
Gregg Thompson, co-founder of Crye Precision said, “From uniform fabrics to heavy duty plate carriers to backpack fabrics, Cordura brand is the gold standard for nearly our entire line.”
