Made partly or entirely from man-made or synthetic materials. These enables the manufacturer to select materials to suit the objectives of their product, for example to achieve light weight, high breathability, or abrasion resistance.
Rip Stop is a lightweight nylon fabric with interwoven rip-stop reinforcement threads in a cross hatch pattern. It's woven with a coarse, strong warp and filling yarns at intervals so that tears will not spread. Rip-stop is used in construction of hot air balloons and yacht sails but in this case very effectively on outdoor clothing.
