The V2 and V3 are built from a razor thin (8 ounce, 38% super weft stretch) performance denim milled by the most advanced denim mill in the world. We've worked with our mill to build Ripton Steelknit® that is both soft and stretchy but holds its shape over many uses and rugged abuse. The latest fabric is still 80% denim, albiet in a thinner, more robust form, and does what we love from organic fabrics. It shapes to your body, to your story over time. Denim that builds greater comfort as well as greater personality. The first 5 fabrics we tested in the wild, tended to stretch and had poor recovery traits, they stretched like a rubber band. The current fabric is designed to hold its form over time.
