Pertex, designer and manufacturer of high-performance fabrics, has partnered with Spyder Active Sports to produce new pieces for snowsport brand's fall/winter collection.

Pertex provides fabrics to an array of top outdoor industry manufacturers in the U.S. and Europe for creation of high-end apparel and sleeping bags. Pertex’s outstanding reputation in the UK and high quality fabric offerings is what piqued Spyder’s interest.

“We’re pleased to be working with Spyder, as they are a clear leader in the industry,” said Steve Laycock, manager of Pertex. “The variations of fabric that Spyder selected for their pieces clearly shows the vast range of offerings in the Pertex Shield line.”

Spyder Active Sports will introduce its warmest jacket in the entire Spyder collection, the Men’s Rocket Down Jacket, and the Women’s Cloud Nine Down Jacket featuring Pertex Shield fabric for fall/winter 2011
