Description

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.

The Romsdal Jacket brings these qualities closer to home, where the quietness and friendly feel of the Ventile® along with smart looks makes for a jacket warm enough for the winter hills or a cold city commute.

The list of features makes for a fully functional down Jacket with waist and chest level pockets and internal security pocket. The detachable down filled hood and stud closure on the front baffle complete the design for greater warmth when battening down the hatches.

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.

Technical

Windproof Ventile Outer Fabric (weight: 170gr/m2)

Ventile®, originally designed in the UK, is densely woven from 100% cotton using the world's finest long staple fibre.

Ventile® is not coated or laminated yet the combination of the dense weave and the swelling properties of the fibres 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.

Superlight MX fabric (weight: 32 gsm)

A mini-ripstop nylon with excellent tear strength, MX is the pick of the superfine 15 denier downproof materials. We have tested lighter fabrics, but most have had significant drawbacks, while our confidence in MX is based on several years of extensive use in both our ultralight and our high mountain gear.

900 Fillpower Down

European goose down of very high quality. A truly excellent down with large clusters, consistent quality and lively long-term performance. More on our down insulation.

Notes:

  • Down Jackets are sized to fit over thermal underwear & fleece.
  • Shell Jackets are sized to fit over thermal underwear & fleece or light down clothing (e.g. Minimus Jacket): to cover thick down clothing, go up one size.
  • The arms of our outdoor jackets are designed to be long enough to keep your wrists warm when your arms are extended horizontally (when using trekking poles, for example) or when you are reaching above yourself (when climbing, for example). In this respect the arm lengths of our jackets differ from street/fashion jackets.
