A note from Luke

Hey Guys!   

We're up and rocking!!

I'm doing my best to get previous customers taken care of and limiting incoming orders.

I can't even express in words how great, and loyal this community is.

We started a little slow getting things running, but we're now shipping about every other day.

Thanks for your support and we will keep you updated with the latest updates.

Ripstop

    Ripstop fabrics are woven fabrics often made out of nylon, using a special reinforcing technique that makes them resistant to tearing and ripping. During weaving (thick) reinforcement threads are interwoven at regular intervals in a crosshatch pattern. The intervals are typically 5 to 8 millimeters (0.2 to 0.3 in). Thin and lightweight ripstop fabrics have a 3-dimensional structure due to the thicker threads being interwoven in thinner cloth. Older lightweight ripstop-fabrics display the thicker interlocking thread patterns in the material quite prominently, but more modern weaving techniques make the ripstop threads less obvious. A similar effect can be achieved by weaving two or three fine yarns together at intervals.
