Our hugely popular Rover double layer Ventile Jacket has had a bit of a make over and the lower pockets are now wider with waterproof zips on the side entry pockets. This is most definitely the go-to jacket if you are going to be out in some seriously bad weather for any length of time, and the perfect choice if you want your jacket to last many years.
It is made from a double layer of Ventile (meaning that the outer and the lining are both Ventile), providing extreme protection from wind and rain. It is also highly breathable and will outlast its manmade competitors by many years. The Rover really is the ultimate outdoor jacket – perfect for hillwalking, outdoor photography, birdwatching or general country pursuits when the weather is at it’s worst.
We specialise in Ventile, having designed and developed Ventile clothing products since 1996. Ventile is a 100% cotton fabric, which was originally developed during World War II for fighter pilot suits due to its unique ability to repel wind and rain, yet at the same time being highly breathable and comfortable to wear. It is the world’s most effective, natural, all-weather cotton fabric that is grown sustainably, and is the best choice for durability, reliability and all-round performance. Being a natural fabric it becomes even softer and more comfortable as time goes by, making it a truly faithful friend.
