  1. The outer fabric is called CORDURA® which is windproof and waterproof. It has a great tough feel and is very durable.
  2. The suit lining is black POLYESTER which is dyed using only azo-free materials in the production process.

Here is the official Cordura information taken from their own website:

Use the Tough Stuff for More Stuff For gear, performance apparel and work wear, CORDURA® is the “Tough Stuff”. And now that CORDURA® can be used in a wider range of products–from heavy-duty performance gear and apparel to everyday wear–CORDURA® is even tougher to beat.

From luggage and backpacks to boots and performance apparel, it’s easier than ever to choose the look, texture and weight you need for all kinds of styles.


How CORDURA® Measures Up

When put to the test, CORDURA® resists tears and abrasions like no other fabric of its kind.

Ounce for ounce, CORDURA® is more durable than other fabrics.



  • 10x more durable than cotton duck
  • 3x more durable than standard polyester
  • 2x more durable than standard nylon

It’s resistant to abrasions, tears, and scuffs – all the qualities you expect from a high performance fabric. So regardless of your activities, you’ll benefit from the toughness of CORDURA®.

This makes them the first choice to many owner–pilots together with low operating costs.
