Ripstop was invented as an alternative to silk parachutes during World War II, and incorporates a grid pattern of thicker threads into its weave to prevent small tears from spreading. A staple of military, camping, and outdoor gear since, it’s been refined into versions like this one from Japan, where the reinforcing threads are very finely woven. This allows the fabric to remain lightweight, slim and fluid while being able to handle the stresses of movement and contact. It’s also triple-layered--a polyurethane film between the outer and inner nylon layers makes it especially wind-and-water resistant.
