Behind The Designs - Ripstop

Featured across many styles as part of our SS16 collection, Nylon Ripstop is an incredibly durable technical fabric. Originally created for military parachutes and yacht sails, Nylon Ripstop was a better alternative to the traditional silks and canvas that had a tendency to develop snags and holes over time. The interwoven reinforced squares on the fabric prevent small holes and tears from easily spreading. Making it the perfect fit for our jackets.

We have used this water resistant, windproof and lightweight fabric on Penfield classics including the inimitable Pac-Jac and new, performance led sportswear styles like the Cranford.
