Ventile® is a densely woven, but unbelievably lightweight cotton fabric developed in the UK during WWII for use in flight suits. We used it to create the ultimate foul-weather lightweight hunting jacket, designed for upland game and estate hunting. Made of pure cotton, the Ventile hunting jacket is entirely wind- and weatherproof, but unlike jackets made from some synthetic materials, it remains breathable and light in any weather. Durable and silent, it's perfect for stalking skittish birds on foggy, wet mornings, but refined and casual enough to wear out on the town later that night. In khaki. Pure cotton. Imported.Sizes: M(38-40), L(42-44), XL(46-48), XXL(50-52).

Great Product in the Deep South,
April 14, 2013
from Deep South
"I bought this jacket, although it's pricey, because I wanted a nice bird hunting jacket which shed water, did not smell, was light, and breathed; I wanted it as an adjunct to my classic waxed cottons, which can be a little warm where I live when it warms up. Turns out it's more versatile than I figured; I wore it last weekend under my "ghillie suit" while turkey hunting in a chilly mist, and today I wore it in the spring cool rain to church [dress at our church is rather informal]. So far the water beads up on it, it sheds perfectly, it breathes well, and it draws compliments. All good. I e-mailed the maker of the cloth in the UK to find out how to PRONOUNCE it, and they are clear: "ven-TILE", like porcelin "tiles", not "ven-TEAL", like greenwing teal. They asked me to spread the word on that, and I promised I would. I keep my promises. Consider it done."
