In 2017, the CORDURA® brand is celebrating fifty unforgettable years. Five decades of non-stop progress that have seen us help shape the world of military gear, workwear, outdoor and lifestyle apparel. Fabric by fabric, setting new goals for textile performance. Bringing durability to life, literally. Whether in urban environments, or in some of the most extreme conditions the world has to offer.

It’s a long and fascinating history, defined by the opportunity to work with innovative and enduring brands and mills globally, as well as some of the most respected organizations in the world.

But it’s also something that would not have been possible without the commitment and inspiration of many people at a very personal level. People who’ve helped us sculpt and evolve our fabric technologies. People who’ve pushed the boundaries of textile solutions in product design and development. People whose experience, passion and drive have built the CORDURA® brand.

Maybe you’re one of them? In which case you’ll have your own tale to tell – and we’d love to hear it. More than that, we’d be honored to include it as part of our year-long celebration of our durable milestone. We’re turning the spotlight on people like you as our way of saying ‘thank you’ for the role you’ve played. So here are three ways you can tell your own story:
