I've seen it referred to as silnylon cordura...that's probably the crinkly stuff. Regular ripstop silnylon is very slippery but not as crinkly as a new backpack made from siliconized cordura.
But I'd probably laugh to see a non-hiker in a fancy silnylon skirt! Bet THAT's comfy.
“Republics are created by the virtue, public spirit, and intelligence of the citizens. They fall when the wise are banished from the public councils because they dare to be honest, and the profligate are rewarded because they flatter the people, in order to betray them.” ~Judge Joseph Story
