Has anybody ever thought of using "Ripstop" as a dogi material?
I sew a lot. The fabric we know here as "ripstop" is 100% nylon. It does NOT breathe nor does it absorb, therefore it is wonderful for outer shells of lighwt raincoats or lightwt, tough luggage, but absolutely AWFUL as a garment and esp one used specifically for athletic activity.
