Advantages of cotton duck fabric
It has a relatively smooth surface that isn't prone to snagging and tearing.
It is somewhat burn-resistant, albeit still certainly flammable. A few small sparks or hot ashes won't ruin the fabric, unlike nylon or other synthetics that end up with tiny pinholes everywhere in the same situation.
It may feel stiff and uncomfortable at first, but after being washed and worn a few times should feel quite comfortable.
