By now, you've probably seen the hype over our two new releases, the brand new Drifter Daypack and the Limited Edition Camo Kumo 36. What you might not know quite as much about is just how impressive the robic camo jacquard fabric is that we've used to design them. Read on to learn more about our custom N100D Robic Camo Jacquard Fabric–exclusive to Gossamer Gear.
Why You Should be Stoked about Our N100D Robic Camo Jacquard Fabric
The fabric we've used on both the new Drifter Daypack and the Limited Edition Camo Kumo 36 is a N100D Robic Camo Jacquard fabric. But, that's not all. This fabric is then coated with 1500mm of durable ultra tearing strength (UTS) polyurethane.
Through their testing experience, our fabric suppliers have found that Robic high tenacity yarn can decrease tearing 10-15% and abrasion 30%. A UTS coating can decrease tearing 50%. Therefore, when you combine these two–as we have–into a Robic+UTS fabric, strength against tearing and abrasion is increased 30% when compared to regular pack fabrics.
But, what's the Jacquard piece all about, you ask? Well, Jacquard is a type of fabric that has an intricately woven pattern. While many fabric patterns you see may be embroidered or printed on, a Jacquard fabric actually weaves the pattern directly into the fabric. This is what we've done with the classy new camo print you'll see on both the Drifter and the Limited Edition Camo Kumo.
Combine all of this info, and what do you get? Two incredibly stylish packs that are super strong, while maintaining the lightweight nature we treasure here at Gossamer Gear. This N100D Robic Camo Jacquard Fabric was custom made for Gossamer Gear, and is an exclusive with the company. You won't find packs looking this sexy and this tough anywhere else.
