Fabric#Ripstop Chino

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 Italy, 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.
