RAPTOR FAbRICS ULTRA LIGHTWEIGHT AND TOUGH RUCKSACK FABRICS Raptor fabrics provide ultra lightweight performance with robust strength and construction that can be relied upon. Raptor fabrics are woven with micro yarns into a tough matrix that can also be sewn with clean lines to reduce bulk and wear points. Like a climber’s optimum physical condition, the Raptor fabric has an outstanding strength to weight ratio and will hold and protect your gear whatever the mountain activity. • Constructed from air-texturised 100% nylon micro filament. • The Raptor TL features an incredible abrasion resistance on par with fabrics two and half times its weight. • Exceptional performance withstanding scuffs, tears and abrasions. • Waterproof and extremely water repellent face. • Excellent tear strength qualities. • Tensile strength is on a par with fabrics twice its weight. • The base fabric Raptor UTL 500d has tough performance qualities on a par with 1000d fabrics yet it is half the weight.

CONTACT MESH Abrasion by cheap rucksack shoulder fabrics has been a consistent problem for many years. How should this be countered? Add even tougher, heavier fabrics to our shell garments and compromise the weight and breathability in this area? No way! When starting the process of rucksack design, this was one of our first priorities, and we worked hard to source a special fabric which will be more kind to all waterproof shell fabrics. We call it Contact Mesh. • It is far less abrasive than ‘Airmesh’, a fabric used on many packs in the outdoor market. • It is soft against the skin, helping to reduce any skin abrasion if only wearing a T-Shirt. • It has a superb ability to shed snow easily and dries exceptionally quickly; far better than ‘Airmesh’.
