Beyond Clothing Announces New Kyros Collection

At Beyond Clothing®, we are focused on building outdoor clothing systems that are designed to withstand the harshest weather conditions in the world. We view our clothing systems as a toolset that has been optimized to keep our customers safe and comfortable during the most demanding expeditions. To continue to drive innovation in our product line, we’ve embarked on a global search to find the most technologically advanced fabrics and construction methods the world has to offer. After rigorous prototyping and development at our Seattle production facility, we are proud to introduce the Kyros™ collection.

The Kyros collection features the technical knowledge that we’ve established from years of building expedition-capable clothing systems with improvements in styling, fit and finish. Kyros will also feature a new proprietary waterproof fabric that we’ve developed in close collaboration with Cordura®. Our Lutra™ fabric is a 3L waterproof, breathable fabric that utilizes Cordura yarn to create a material that surpasses the tear strength of our competitors by nearly double. As well, each piece in the Kyros collection is completely compatible with the Axios system and can be used interchangeably as needed.

LUTRA FABRIC

We are proud to announce a new, proprietary waterproof fabric that we’ve developed in close collaboration with Cordura. Our Lutra fabric is a 3L waterproof breathable fabric that utilizes Cordura yarn to create a material that surpasses the tear strength of our competitors by nearly double. This fabric is designed to withstand abrasion while maintaining protection from the most extreme weather conditions.

Lutra is comprised of three layers: a 40D ripstop face fabric that utilizes Cordura yarn for increased durability, a 20D nylon tricot backing and a waterproof, breathable PTFE Membrane. This durable windproof and waterproof fabric will be featured in our upcoming Arx Rain Jacket and Pant from our Kyros collection. All clothing featuring our Lutra fabric will be fully seam sealed for maximum moisture protection.

“Beyond® has worked tirelessly with the U.S. supply chain to produce the most technical apparel possible given the shrinking industrial base. We are committed to expanding the quality and capability of our American Made collection, Axios. To do this, we have sought new technologies abroad in order to identify the best materials, production machinery and trims available. We are excited to present our new Kyros collection.

The Kyros collection will help test and identify global industrial capability with the intent of bringing those technologies back to the U.S. Ultimately, the goal of Beyond is to provide the best environmentally protective clothing systems in the world.”

    I wonder if the Lutra fabric also has a lower noise factor than other waterproof materials.
