Expertly handcrafted in Manchester, Great Britain, the limited edition, Ventile® Mac is a weather resistant, premium jacket, designed to fit the demands of your active, urban lifestyle.
Tailored with a regular fit and contrasting colour taped seams for maximum weather resistance, the Ventile® Mac has been beautifully finished with a copper zip from RiRi of Switzerland. A reflective strip has been added to the inside of the tail for visibility, and the magnetic storm flap, which covers the zip closure, maintains the Ventile® Mac’s unfussy, yet stylish appearance.
The Ventile® Mac also includes two hand pockets, a hidden zipped chest pocket and an inside zipped pocket, which sits by your waist.
Ventile® was originally developed in the 1930's. You can learn more about its history here. This ground-breaking cotton is naturally waterproof, but how does it work? Let's get to the science... Firstly, Ventile® does not have any kind of waterproof coating. The secret to its weather resistance lies in the fabric's weave. Its long staple cotton fibres are so densely woven that, when wet, the tiny holes in the weave (that give Ventile® its superb breathability) swell up, filling the gaps thus make the fabric weatherproof. Great news for the wearer as it means you won't have to reapply any coatings to the mac to preserve its weatherproof superpowers over time.
The Ventile® Mac weighs approximately 670g making it a most welcome addition to any wardrobe.
