Canoeist smock jacket in Ventile®

Product Details

Our designers drew inspiration for this jacket from one of history's rarest and most legendary pieces of military clothing. The jacket worn during World War II by the British Special Boat Service, a special forces unit that conducted missions via two-man canoes. This version is made of Ventile, the original tech fabric. Pioneered by British scientists as the perfect outerwear textile for World War II Royal Air Force pilots, it's made from long-staple cotton in an incredibly dense weave that uses much more yarn than other fabrics. Because it's cotton, it's more breathable than other performance fabrics, and the tight weave means that it's naturally windbreaking and water-resistant.
