CORDURA® Brand 'Great Winter Market Scavenger Hunt'

Winners Recognized At Outdoor Retail Winter Market

As part of the ‘Great Winter Market Scavenger Hunt,' sponsored by INVISTA's CORDURA® brand, outdoor enthusiasts hurriedly explored the Winter Market floor in search of products made with CORDURA® fabric. Winners Cheri Henderson of Duluth, MN and Dan Cruikshank of Two Harbors, MN were tipped off to the fabric's stylish durability by CORDURA® fabric hangtags and labels featured on exhibited products of many well-known brands. The winners were announced during a party featuring live music and a beer tasting at INVISTA's CORDURA® brand booth (#40186) on Thursday, Jan. 24 at 5pm. Both winners also walked away with an eTrex Legend® HCx personal navigator systems and four runner up winners took home Suunto brand altimeter watches.
