Developed in England in 1943, Ventile® was originally designed to save the lives of pilots flying over the Atlantic in Wartime England. In the cockpit, Ventile® proved cool and comfortable, whilst in the water, the fabric proved warm and impenetrable – extending survival times tenfold. Ventile® suits are still worn by pilots of various air forces.
Ventile® fabric has reached the Summit of Everest, Annapura and just about every other major peak in the world and has been used for years by adventurers, most famously, Sir Ranulph Fiennes who crossed the Antarctic clothed in Ventile®.
