    Calendared ripstop = windproof?

    Is calendared ripstop considered to be windproof?

    I have some leftover calendared ripstop from a UQ project, but I cannot put my hands on it right now, and I am considering using it to make a hammock sock.

    Is 1.1 oz calendared ripstop appropriate material for a hammock sock?
    If not can you recommend a more appropriate material?


    Thanks

    It's about as windproof as you can get and still breathe... Only Sil is more windproof.

    it's a good choice for a sock...
