Wichita, KS, April 24, 2010 --( INVISTA’s CORDURA® brand team unveils its latest innovation – CORDURA® Baselayer freshFX® fabric. Based on a silver-based technology, CORDURA® Baselayer freshFX® fabrics not only provide long-lasting freshness for the standard life of the garment but also have the added benefit of built-in CORDURA® brand durability.
