Cordura® Admiral

Warp-knitted fabric with high abrasion made entirely with polyamide 6.6 HT InvistaTM always avaible on stock in more of 28 colors.

The adoption of a precious yarn such as Cordura® high tenacity nylon places it at the top of the range in dry and wet abrasion resistance tests: the values found in the comparative tests carried out in an accredited laboratory showed values four times higher of a corresponding fabric made of Ny 6!

Generally supplied with a water-repellent treatment, it allows to make robust uppers keeping the transpiration characteristics unchanged as it does not need to be supported by wire stop resin.

Cordura® Traveller is always avaible on stock in more of 28 colors and is generally offered in combination with our highly transpiring reticulated polyurethane foams or the vast collection of breathable support with a particularly round handle that meet Gore standard enhance it's features techniques in the heaviest uses such as military boots and hiking shoes.
