First developed in 1943 for immersion suits worn by the Royal Air Force, Ventile fabrics are densely woven of superb long-staple cotton that swells when wet. This yields a most-compelling collection of characteristics, including superb water-repellence, windproofing, breathability, durability, and refusal to tear or burn. Unlike other performance fabrics that rustle when you move, Ventile is incredibly quiet for stealth in the field. Still authentically made in the U.K., notable and worthy.
