This cool piece pictured here is an incredibly high density cotton jacket, held together with a special bonding that makes the fabric tear resistant and pucker resistant. In addition, it is highly water repellent.
Some interesting factoids: the bonding sheet that bonds the two cottons in the jacket fabric is also used to cover the tunnels that the high speed trains in Japan fly through at speeds over 150 mph. That's pretty dope. Also, they used this bonding agent to seal up nuclear leaks after the Fukushima disaster, so if it's sturdy enough for nuclear waste, imagine how strong it can be in a rainstorm. This is tough stuff.
