 Fabric Technology: 

Ventie

Originally designed in the UK, Ventile® is densely woven from 100% cotton using the world’s finest long-staple fiber.

Ventile® is not coated or laminated yet the combination of the dense weave and the swelling properties of the fibers when wet provide excellent weatherproofing.
It is an entirely natural product that offers a unique level of comfort, look and feel as well as being windproof, highly breathable, very durable and quiet.

Ventile® fabrics are used in some of the world’s finest outerwear performance garments and have military, medical and workwear applications. What’s more, they look great!

The long pedigree of the fabric goes back as far as the late 1930s. With war looming, the British government thought that there would be a shortage of flax that was used in those days for fire hoses and water buckets. An alternative was required and research was commenced into the use of cotton, woven in such a way as to keep water in! And it worked.

The requirements for research though changed during World War II. Britain depended upon convoys carrying vital supplies, but our Russian convoys across the Arctic Ocean were particularly susceptible to attack from submarines and long-range bombers. Home-based RAF fighter escort cover was impossible because of distance.

So, Winston Churchill promoted the concept of catapulting expendable Hurricane aircraft from the decks of merchant ships to provide local cover. There was no means of landing back on the deck. The pilot had the choice of ditching the aircraft or bailing out into the sea. There was no problem in spotting the pilots who had signals and lights, but the water was so cold that life expectancy was only a few minutes. Most died from exposure.

There was an urgent need for a new, protective clothing fabric that would be comfortable in the cockpit under combat conditions and that would also keep a pilot warm and dry in the sea. After many trials, the scientists at the Shirley Institute in Manchester U.K. developed the fabric called ‘Ventile’. When made into finished garments, life expectancy in the sea was extended from a few minutes to 20 minutes and rescue was now a real possibility. 80% of anti-submarine pilots who fell into the sea now survived.
Ventile® fabrics for RAF clothing went into mass production in 1943 and the military association still remains today. Garment designs have changed over the years but you will still find Ventile® suits in modern Tornado jets with the RAF and other NATO airforces.

This Keela Falkland Country Jacket strikes the perfect balance between classic country styling and modern-day design. 

The Keela Falkland Country Jacket is constructed from the same Ventile material which helped conquer Everest.

Benefits:

  • The fabric is quiet with very little rustle, perfect for blending in with the wildlife.
  • With chest, hip, and side pockets, as well as internal pockets there's plenty of storage space.

    Keela Fitting Info 2

    Our range is used for everything from running and cycling to conquering mountains, and each item is designed to work best in a specific scenario.
    However this can mean that our items fit differently from each other, depending on what you are using them for, and your own personal preferences!

    For example if you’re usually a size M and have one of our base layers in a size M and decide you really MUST have a Munro Jacket for walking your dogs in the pouring rain – if you aren’t planning on wearing multiple bulky layers with the Munro, you’re likely to find the size M too big – this is because it’s designed to survive trips up mountains in the most extreme conditions, where you would need to wear a wicking baselayer, maybe a microfleece, and a thicker fleece or thermal jacket. If you’re not going to wear these layers, you’ll have a lot of extra space!

    Still confused? Don’t worry! We’ve added icons to our product pages to let you know how the item fits, and you can follow the extra guidance below to help you decide if you should stick to your normal size, or choose a size up or down.
