Tom Clancy’s The Division 2: Protective Fabric Crafting Material Location

Protective Fabric is a Crafting Material featured in Tom Clancy’s The Division 2, the latest video-game developed by Massive Entertainment and published by Ubisoft for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

The Protective Fabric in Division 2 is used at the Workbench in association with other materials, to craft Gear.

Additionally, this material, along with the Polycarbonates and Receiver Components is required to upgrade the Crafting Station.

Protective Fabric Description

“Crafting material used for crafting the outer and inner gear layers. Can be salvaged through deconstruction.

Equipment needs to withstand extreme conditions and heavy wear and tear.

The fabric used to make gear has to be fire-retardant and durable enough to allow the user to operate in rough terrain.

Urban environments often feature a lot of sharp edges and coarse surfaces, such as of metal, glass, and concrete, which requires tactical gear to be made out of very high-quality materials.
