The 531cc Ventile is lightweight yet robust and hard wearing. Made from the same cotton as used for fighter pilots flying suits it is light and breathable yet waterproof. The zip front closes with a protective flap that buttons up against the chill. Likewise the cuffs zip and button. The collar has a button across tab to keep the drafts out. All manufactured in England by quality craftsmen and women.
A casual cut that understands rider specific needs. Long tail and extended curved cuffs to ensure lower back and hands are covered in the riding position. Zipped pockets with easy grab ring pulls are on both sides. A zip and flap pocket at the rear will hold your mobile or wallet securely.
Good for the commute or casual wear. The technical qualities of Ventile allow protection against the elements without adding weight or compromising cut and feel. Ventile was developed for the RAF and is used in flying suits where the need for water resistance during emergencies combines with a need for a cool and comfortable environment in the cockpit. It is a natural fabric made from the finest, long staple cotton, and not coated or laminated in any way. It breathes far more effectively than other all–weather fabrics. At the same time it wears, looks and feels as only natural fabric can.
Recently reviewed in Urban Cyclist winter edition. "Tough, high quality jacket for casual riding. The stitching is great and it feels as if it will last for years. Casual but with long enough arms and a subtly dropped tail. Excellent natural water resistance. It isn't coated so is more breathable than most , yet rain simply beads off."
