History

Ventile was developed by the RAF to protect Arctic pilots from exposure if they wound up in the drink. It is an untreated, unlaminated cotton that offers exceptional water and wind resistance. Ventile achieves these properties without chemical treatment with an incredibly tight, long-staple oxford weave that is 30% more dense than other cotton fabrics. As moisture contacts the fabric, the threads swell to form a barrier against further absorption. Ventile has been tested and endorsed not only by the pilots whose lives were saved by the fabric, but also by adventurers in the farthest reaches of the planet.
