    Nylon ripstop would make an absolutely awful kilt. I think one utility kilt maker claimed to use it, but they also didn't understand anything about their materials. Nylon/cotton ripstop, OTOH, is really fantastic stuff for this application.

    I have seen the UT Kilts ripstop kilts. They are the same sort of ripstop material that military BDUs are made from. I assume that it is a cotton/nylon or cotton/polyester blend. The material feels lightweight, but tough. It seems like it would be good for warm climates or Summer wear if you are working in the heat. If I recall correctly, they were around $60. I think all of their kilts have a 23 inch drop, but you can have one made a different length for about 20 bucks extra. I hope that helps. I only touched one of these kilts, but didn't purchase one. I did buy their ultimate utility kilt and really like it for applications where I'm working outdoors or hanging around the house. I wish I could help you more with your question, but that is about the best I can do.

    I have the 5.11 Tactical Kilt, but that is a poly/cotton ripstop fabric. It's a great casual kilt, but it's a bit generously sized.
