Manufacturing Motocross gear
I am interested in manufacturing MX gear ( more for enduro style riding than track racing ) here in Cambodia and wanted to know your opinions on what is the best material to use for pants and jackets. I need lightweight and waterproof due to the heat and rain here but also need it to be non-rip for those nasty road slides. I am guessing Cordura but I know it comes in alot of different grades, however I am unfamiliar with alot of materials. Can you guys make some recommendations ?. I am not in the manufacturing game but see a need for it here and as we have alot of garment factories in Cambodia I am keen to investigate this.
thanks in advance,

You should talk to the owner of Eaglespeed manufacturing in Bangkok, Thailand. He is quite familiar with MX products and manufacturing in SE Asia.
He may even have some suggestions or help.
The materials from DuPont like Cordura work well but Schoeller fabrics tend to be better for abrasion but they're $$$.
