Tech Explained: Ripstop Fabric

RIPSTOP FABRIC

TECH EXPLAINED

 

FLINT UTILITY PANT 

 

The Flint Utility Pant is constructed with military inspired ripstop fabric. Built  with a hint of stretch and loaded with pockets, the Flint is a favorite of our customers and staff alike. 

 

WHAT IS RIPSTOP? 

Ripstop fabric is engineered with a reinforcing technique that makes the fabric resistant to tearing and ripping.  
 
During weaving, thick reinforcement yarns are interwoven into a crosshatch pattern. This weave combined with a hint of stretch creates supreme durability. Our cotton stretch blend means you’ve got even more give before a potential tear.

The Flint Utility Pant has 7 pockets total

 

  • Drop-in pocket with zipper closure on left thigh
  • Cargo-style pocket with zipper closure on right thigh
  • Oversized back pockets with hidden snap closure
  • Hidden side seam deep drill hand pocket with zipper closure for added security
  • Angled, deep drill hand pockets

 

Mobility is critical for those long days. The Flint has knee articulation and an action gusset. A gusset panel is added to the stress points of a garment to help increase mobility. A crotch gusset (AKA Action Gusset) allows for more freedom of movement. Which prevents pants from grabbing and yanking tight against the crotch while you bend and work.

 

AVAILABLE IN A CLASSIC FIT AND 3 MILITARY INSPIRED COLORS:

Forest Moss, Tobacco and Jackson Grey
