Best Made Ventile Anorak

Since it was invented just after World War II, Ventile has been a material used by explorers, Air Force Pilots, and bushcrafters (those who put their survival skills to the test in the wilderness). If you are imbued with the same burning desire for adventure, keep that fire insulated from the rain and snow with this rugged Ventile anorak from Best Made.

Ventile’s molecular fortitude in frigid and wet weather make it the ideal material to provide shelter from the elements. Already densely woven, the fibers in Ventile swell when wet, reducing the size of pores to 3 microns (three millionths of a meter). Best Made further reduces the porosity of its Ventile Anorak with fully taped seams and YKK Aquaseal Vision zips with BMC leather pull tabs. Despite being 99% impermeable by water, the Ventile Anorak is still air-porous. The fabric easily breathes, so that you don’t soak yourself in sweat trying to stay dry. Cotton moleskin lining cuffs and pockets provide comfort, and allows the wearer to remain quiet. Birdwatchers and hunters love this Ventile fabric because unlike swishing synthetic fabrics like Gore-Tex, it stays silent. Whatever the pursuit, this bad boy will integrate seamlessly into the wardrobe of anyone who loves the outdoors.
