The Swiss Army has given its seal of approval to the latest range of fleece fabrics from Eschler AG.

The first such fabrics made their debut back in l988 as the result of cooperation between Eschler and the Trevira fibre group. During the interim Eschler's line of polyester fleeces has been growing steadily, and today the fabrics marketed under the Eschler Husky brand range in weight from 110-240 gms. The lightest is taken up by the underwear trade and the heaviest is in demand for extreme climate outer wear.

The latest additions to the collection, which have been army approved, are the H2 group which come with a hydrophilic inner and a hydrophobic outer.
