Winter is for wrapping up warm, cocooning from the elements and searching for comfort. Whether fighting off the cold on a frosty morning in the country or doing the morning commute in the pouring rain, our Ventile coat will keep you protected and comfortable.
Ventile® fabric was pioneered by scientists in Manchester to save Air Force pilots flying over the Atlantic during wartime England. They needed something comfortable, warm and breathable for the cockpit but impenetrable by water, should they fall into the sea. The radical fabric increased life expectancy and meant 80% of pilots would now survive in the sea. Ventile® went into mass production in 1943 and the rest, as they say, is history.
"The world’s most effective, natural, all-weather cotton textile that is grown sustainably. It’s the best choice for durability, reliability and all-round performance. For luxury that lasts like no other, choose Ventile®. It performs" - Ventile®
Today, Ventile® continue to pioneer innovation and performance across their fabrics. Our Ventile® Down Jacket this season uses their organic cotton - a premium, extra-long staple cotton, representing just 0.04% of cotton grown worldwide. (Try throwing water at this jacket, we dare you). It’s then also lined with Responsible Down Standard (RDS) grey duck down for efficient insulation and has two internal pockets (one with a zipper for all essentials). The hood is detachable and there’s an elasticated hem with adjustable toggles to achieve the perfect fit.
