Sasta Taiga Ventile Jacket - Dark Olive

£375.00

Brand: Sasta
Weight: 678 g         4 reviews
The Sasta Taiga Ventile Jacket is made from 100% Ventile®, which is a high performance, hard-wearing weatherproof cotton fabric. This garment excels in hunting, skiing and trekking situations, but is just as suitable as an all-round outdoor jacket.

This fabric is an entirely natural product that offers a unique level of protection from rain, while also being windproof, highly breathable, very durable and quiet. As such, Ventile® is seen by many as the ideal fabric for demanding outdoor use. The combination of a dense weave, along with the swelling properties of the fibres when wet, provides excellent weatherproofing in a garment made from 100% cotton.

The Sasta Taiga Ventile Jacket is very similar to the Sasta Peski Ventile Anorak offered by Woodlore in terms of material, but with this full length zip design it offers you a great alternative with the ability to put on and remove the jacket swiftly with more ease.

When properly cared for, Sasta garments retain their special properties and stay in good condition for many years. Attend to your clothing regularly and follow the washing instructions carefully in order to ensure that the materials retain their characteristics and your clothes can withstand hard use and demanding conditions year after year.

  Sizing dos not seem accurate. I have a 44 inch chest so I chose XL, but it feels like it was made for a 88' chest and 100' belly. Very baggy and loose so there is room for at least 3 layers there. I can wear a goose down jacket under this. Maybe I should have chosen size M. Its a thin single layer jacket and the quality of the Ventile fabric feels good. It has taped seams and is able to protect you from wind, a little bit of rain and sparks from a cosy camp fire. It seems tough and durable. Time will tell.

  Had this jacket for a few months now, I like the fit and simplicity of it, nice and light , perfect for cutting about the outdoors with the dog. It's marketed as being weatherproof, the seams are taped as well. Waterproof it isn't, couple hours of rain and it leaks pretty bad. My hilltrek single layer ventile smock never leaked. I'm kinda torn between the good fit but terrible waterproofing. I'd give it a miss if you need a waterproof. 330 pounds never worth it. Great service from woodlore as usual though.

Dear Vernon. Thank you for your review, the Ventile material is not waterproof but is weatherproof. The natural characteristics of the fabric means it swells when it gets wet, while this happens it remains breathable, wind proof and quiet.

  A super jacket, with a roomy hood and large pockets. I was really pleased with the Ventile fabric, as breathability is important to me when considering outer shell jackets. The hood is huge, with a super peak to keep the rain off my glasses. My only minus point (and it's a small minus point) is the lack of storm flap or rain-proof zip for the main zipper. I haven't had the opportunity to walk into driving rain yet, so I can't say if it will leak, but a storm flap would have made it more secure. But nonetheless, very pleased with the jacket overall.

  Very happy with this jacket and the usual top class service from Woodlore. Slightly apprehensive before buying due to lack of reviews but jacket exceeded expectations. Added bonus that looks casual when needed. Hood is similar to the fjallraven eco trail jacket if familiar - this jacket performs much better. Wanted something more weatherproof than G1000 - also wanted something more casual than the Tahr or the recon - this jacket ticks all of the boxes Size medium true to size - 6.1 and 42 chest
