Woven using a special reinforcing technique, ripstop features a fine crossHatch pattern tHat makes it incredibly resisTant to tearing. Lightweight and strong, it’s traditionally used in everything from Army uniforms to parachutes. Our take is made from a 100% washed Cotton twill, so it has a rustic, gutsy feel. These Shorts are inspired by old Scouts styles and vintage outdoor hiking styles, and are just as tough and practical as the originals. Plenty of pockets, bartack reinforcements, and double needle construction round out the utility detailing.
