Puffy Down Jackets Beware: Scrapper Outerwear Collection From Duluth Trading Company Hangs Tough With Rip-Resistant Cordura® Fabric

To help guys tear through their work without tearing their gear, omni-channel workwear retailer Duluth Trading Company introduces a line-up of Scrapper outerwear made with rip-resisting, durable CORDURA® Naturalle™ nylon fabric.  Featuring built-in underarm gussets and stretch for freedom of movement, the Scrapper gear includes men’s and women’s vests, jackets, and hooded jackets. 

Constructed as trim, lightweight pieces for wearing by itself or in layers, Scrapper gear is insulated with Thinsulate™ to ensure warmth in sub-freezing temperatures.  The vests and jackets are made of smooth – never poufy – polyester taffeta lining to slide on easily over layers, so working guys don’t have to wrestle in and out of stiff, bulky clothing.

“Tough CORDURA® fabric is a great addition to Duluth’s outerwear offering.  It impressively helps ward off on-the-job damage like protruding nails and sharp edges that would usually shred those puffy down vests and jackets,” says Stephanie Pugliese, president of Duluth Trading Company, based in Belleville, Wis. “Our customers surely don’t bail when the going gets rough and incorporating CORDURA® fabric into our product line helps us continue to offer the high-quality, ingenious products they need.”

In addition to tough-as-nails attributes, the Scrapper vests and jackets will also block wind, fend off rain and shed moisture. “We’re glad to help Duluth Trading add another durable outerwear solution to its customers,” says Cindy McNaull, global CORDURA® brand and marketing director.  “Our CORDURA® fabric technology is designed to enhance the already built-in toughness and durability of Duluth Trading’s products to help men and women tackle rugged conditions.”
