Ripstop fabrics are created using a special reinforcing crosshatch weave that gives it a great strength without a lot of weight. True Timber MC2 70 Denier Ripstop Spring Camouflage fabric is light, strong, and incredibly versatile. Great for outdoor use, ripstop is waterproof and resists tears or rips--and as the name suggests, if a small tear does occur, the special design will help prevent it from spreading. It makes a great tent material or a fantastic kite sail. This fabric features a polyurethane coating with UV inhibitors. Ripstop can also be used in clothing applications, such as pants.
