Really well made, solid, well-cut, stylish, practical piece of kit. This jacket oozes quality, the stitching and finishing are excellent, the shape is flattering yet allowing great freedom of movement. The fabric seems very robust but not overly heavy and there are some great little details, like small reflective strips on the backs of the cuffs. I have no doubt that it‘ll still be going strong in more than twenty years time and I anticipate that it‘ll gain a great patina as it ages. I‘m a newbie to Ventile, I have done the rounds over the years with eVent, GoreTex, cuben fibre and all manner of man-made fabrics (mostly PU) with varying coatings, although this is early days I haven‘t yet had a chance to see how the jacket properly fares against the elements. From the reviews I‘ve read I‘m sure I won‘t be disappointed. In short am happy so far, I am looking forward to discovering how this jacket fits into my clothing arsenal, how it fares out in the wild and which conditions make me reach for it above others.
