Cordura HP is also designed to be an excellent print medium for patterns.
Cordura® 1000D is available in a wide range of vibrant colors and is the standard fabric for bags and outdoor gear. This coated, heavy-duty 1000 denier fabric is constructed using high-tenacity nylon from INVISTA. These fibers are then coated in both polyurethane (back) and a durable water-repellent finish (front) to create a material with exceptional abrasion resistance and tear strength. And for those looking for an extra heavy-duty nylon bag fabric that has undergone rigorous testing to meet all military specifications, choose Cordura® 1000D or 500D Mil-Spec.
