Enduro Mesh

Designed originally for motorbike wear, this exceptional fabric offers great abrasion resistance, breathability, and drainage. Furthermore, its soft handling flexibility belies its toughness. This means that stress is not concentrated along the edges of panels, something that causes a lot of wear and tear on waterproof fabrics reinforced with other materials.

Cordura

Also originally designed for motorbike wear, this special type of hi-tensile nylon is incredibly abrasion and tear resistant. We have used it for decades as the outer fabric for our buoyancy aids because of it's proven track record for durability in and out of the water. We're so impressed by it, there isn't a buoyancy aid in this years range that doesn't use it.
