I'm playing around with nodes within cycles and I'd love to create a chevron like texture like the image below. Anyone an idea how to accomplish this?

Start with Wave procedural texture and create tiling in X axis with Repeating patterns on procedural textures. After that clamp the values into stripes with a ColorRamp node set to constant:

You can adjust the stripes with the ColorRamp node:

For mapping procedural textures onto spherical objects there has to be additional transforming of mapping coordinates:

For procedural cylindrical projection this node group:

And for procedural spherical projection this node group:

Using the spherical projection with the tiled chevron procedural texture:

Here we also added an extra Mapping node to control stretching of the texture around the surface.

On the egg shape cylindrical projection looks the best:
