The first full-fledged experience in creating workable, functional clothes with large-scale use of Vectran fibers can be considered the ACE Lofoten ski suit from Norwegian outdoor brand Norrona
. For its tailoring the strong nylon cloth strengthened with Vectran threads on all area (a proportion – 77% /23% respectively) is used. The uniqueness of the fabric is due to the fact that it is a membrane laminate Gore-Tex Pro, created by the company in a small volume at the exclusive request of Norrona.
ACE costume series is limited and all items are numbered with serial numbers, but there is hope that it will take its place in the regular collections of the brand. Mass introduction of fabrics with Vectran fibers in production of functional and stylish clothes is hindered by complexity of material processing – for its cutting re-equipment of production as usual knives and cutters do not cope with it is required.
