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 a hidden zipped chest pocket and inside zipped pocket, which sits by your waist.
Ventile® cotton is naturally waterproof, but how does it work? 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.
Ventile® cotton is a so densly woven that it is naturally waterproof. It was developed in the 1930s during WW2 when the British government needed a waterproof fabric to save the lives of fighter pilots that were required to land in the Artic and Baltic oceans and wait to be rescued.
Ventile® fabrics for RAF clothing went into mass production in 1943 it extended life expectancy in the sea from a few minutes to over 20 minutes, which made rescue a real possibility. You will still find Ventile® suits in modern Tornado jets with the RAF and other Nato Forces.
