Merlin has worked with Scottish mill Halley Stevensons, to create a unique fabric sub range within the Merlin Heritage range.
This new fabric Cotec has a soft, slightly oily/damp handle with a modern matt appearance. The cloth maintains a clean, uniform appearance. This unique fabric is a modern interpretation of traditional silk wax, with better breathability, ease of use in the long term and critically better safety performance. Given all this it is even more amazing that the fabric has a finished 8oz weight in contrast to the traditional silkwax which has a finished weight of 12oz.
These new Cotec garments also now come with the newly licensed to Merlin, D30 impact protectors pre-fitted to shoulders and elbows. Merlin has chosen the latest LP1 D30 armour which has a highly ventilated construction, safetylevel 1 inclusive of the optional high and low temperature tests as well as the signature D30 flexibility that hardens on impact.
