Arc’teryx LEAF Assault LT Uniform Featuring Gore Katana Fabric

Monday, April 30th, 2018

Arc’teryx LEAF Assault LT Uniform Featuring Gore Katana Fabric

Although we’ve mentioned the Assault LT ensemble by Arc’teryx LEAF a couple of times in the past, many don’t know that it is made with a fabric developed specifically for he military market by WL Gore & Associates, called Katana.

Katana incorporates ePTFE ePTFE (expanded polytetrafluoroethylene) fiber technology and is lightweight, breathable, fast drying and no melt/no drip making it great for use in hot environments. Essentially, the inclusion of ePTFE in the standard 50/50 NYCO, improves the blend. Arc’teryx further tuned the uniform with 520E Tweave and Cyberknit mesh.

The advantages of Katana are many:
-Low wet pick-up for faster dry time
-Faster dry time with moisture absorption
-High mechanical durability (break & tear strength)
