Features include paracord drawstrings at hood, waist and hem; military-grade zipper; angled flap pockets; and enameled snaps with leather washers.Designed for on-water bluster, on-land showers and an evening’s chill. Built to last for years of hard use. Crafted in NYC of 100% cotton from the U.K. Sizes XS–XL. Red, Navy or White.


British Ventile


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.
