Ripstop nylon is a light weight nylon fabric. It has interwoven ripstop reinforcement threads. These threads are in a crosshatch pattern. This reinforcing technique makes Ripstop Nylon Fabric resistant to tearing and ripping. During weaving, thicker reinforcement threads are interwoven at regular intervals in a crosshatch pattern. These threads are woven in both the warp and fill direction. This is pretty much the defination of Ripstop Nylon Fabric. The Ripstop, that we sell, the interval is typically a little less than One Quarter of an inch. Which is pretty typical of most Ripstop Nylon Fabric. Thin and light weight, ripstop nylon fabrics have a very slight Three dimensional structure due to the thicker threads being interwoven in thinner cloth. This is only noticeable, when the viewer is within a few feet of the fabric.
