You've taken what I've always considered a very utilitarian fabric, rip-stop nylon, and taken it to new heights. Your coat is wonderful! It would look great on the stage with black lights. My mom gave me a jacket made of rip-stop nylon to take to the Goodwill. It'll never make the trip. I'm going to see if I can do something creative with the fabric.
