Also available in custom sizes. We make clothing to order, so if you’re not a standard size we can make it to fit. To order a non-standard custom size, select the Custom Sizing tab, choose your body width, and then the body/arm lengths, shorter or longer, that work for you. A custom size takes us a little longer (typically two weeks longer) to make and, because it’s personalized, it’s non-returnable and our customer loyalty scheme can’t be applied.

The combination of Ventile® and down has long been appreciated by Polar explorers in the Arctic and the Antarctic, where the effective weather protection, reassuring warmth and exceptional breathability combine to great effect. This has also made it a favourite with wildlife cameramen, commuters in the coldest cities, and many others who simply prefer the natural, rustle-free qualities of traditional outdoor fabrics, the way they were before the introduction of ripstop nylon and Gore Tex.

This Nordland  Jacket brings these qualities closer to home, where the quietness and friendly feel of the Ventile® outer make it an attractive alternative to normal down jackets. With a temperature rating of -15°C it has reassuring weight and warmth, go-anywhere comfort, and a real capability in harsh weather. The detachable down-filled hood adds versatility, whilst the chest pocket, buttoned waist level pockets, buttoned double front baffle, and shock-cord hem are designed to keep the worst of the cold weather out.

For those unfamiliar with Ventile®, this is the original technical all-weather fabric. Those who do know it will recognise the beauty which lies in its combination of breathability, dependability and a quiet, soft handle. At PHD, we’ve been using Ventile® to make down clothing for 20 years, and here in our Ventile® Outwear collection we’re able to look beyond making the latest weight-saving innovations and embrace the broader possibilities of these beautiful 100% cotton fabrics.
