Additional Donations Included COOLMAX® Extreme Fabric T-Shirts And CORDURA® Fabric Reinforced Jeans
INVISTA once again shows its support for warfighters competing in the widely recognized Best Rangers Competition as a Platinum sponsor and with the additional donations of several items that showcase its high-performance fabrics.
For the 25th annual Best Ranger Competition (April 20-22, 2008) at Fort Benning, GA, INVISTA provided a $5,000 sponsorship and in partnership with Tac Wear and Ranger Joe’s, donated 160 Competitor and 140 Cadre COOLMAX® Extreme fabric t-shirts with freshFX™ technology for every competitor and staff to wear during the competition, In addition, INVISTA donated Diamond Gusset Sherpa Jeans made with 500 denier ACU printed CORDURA® fabric to the top five winning teams
To each of the 29 teams, the competition t-shirts that were donated integrate COOLMAX® Extreme freshFX™ fabric, which offers excellent wicking, fast drying times, outstanding breathability and comfort. Further, the freshFX™ fiber technology is designed to inhibit the growth of bacteria to help clothes resist odors, keeping the clothes smelling fresh and clean longer. “For soldiers who wore the COOLMAX® fabric t-shirt during the competition, they experienced first-hand the effective moisture management of the baselayer,” says Sharon Birk, Military End-Use Marketing Manager for INVISTA’s CORDURA® NYCO brand.
Together with Diamond Gusset Jeans, INVISTA provided 10 redeemable coupons good for one pair of Diamond Gusset Sherpa Jeans. The jean features highly durable 500 denier MIL spec nylon based CORDURA® fabric printed in Army ACU digital camouflage, with 1 oz. poly-urethane back-coating for extra moisture and stain resistance. Additional features include, access to right front leg panel for plenty of storage space and the Expander™ Design with Velcro “Docking Stations.” “We jumped at the opportunity to support this year’s Best Ranger Competition because it allowed us to showcase the exceptional performance of products such as the new line of Diamond Gusset Jeans made with CORDURA® brand fabric. ” says Allen Mortimer, North American End-Use Marketing Manager for INVISTA’s CORDURA® brand.
