About Cordura Heavy Waterproof Oxford
Our Cordura Heavy Waterproof Oxford is similar in weight and uses to Waterproof Canvas (WPC) but is 100% Polyester fiber instead of Cotton.
This fabric features a clear polyurethane coating on the back and a durable water-repellent finish on the front for a long-lasting product that resists the elements and is easy to clean. Close to a 1000D, the actual woven construction of this fabric is a 915 x 1220 denier fabric.
Because of its great resistance to abrasion, mildew and rot, plus its quick-drying abilities, this high-performance polyester product is great for backpacks, custom bags, luggage, pet products, travel accessories, outdoor gear, footwear and sail bags.
Although a heavy duty fabric, it doesn't have many of the usual sewing irritations of heavy weight material (it's not stiff and doesn't have a PVC backing, etc.). This makes it more versatile, as there isn't any rigid stiffness or bulky weight to limit its uses.
