Pertex has received the Outdoor Writers Guild's Derryck Draper Award 2016 for its CS10 Technology, which uses unique diamond-shaped filaments to provide fabrics with abrasion resistance and improved water beading properties. The textile brand was already the recipient of the first Derryck Draper Crystal Award back in 1999 for Pertex Equilibrium. Formed in 1980, the Outdoor Writers Guild groups media professionals who cover sustainable outdoor activities.
