Country Innovation's Rover Jacket is made from a double layer of Ventile®, providing the ultimate outdoor jacket - perfect for hillwalking, birdwatching or other country pursuits. Ventile® is a 100% cotton fabric which was originally developed during World War II for fighter pilot suits due to its unique ability to repel wind and rain, yet at the same time being highly breathable and comfortable to wear. Being a natural fabric it is not reliant upon regular proofing to provide protection from the elements, and will outlast its manmade counterparts by many years.

I had a bit of a journey before finding this jacket. Looking for a replacement (or at least a supplement) to an ageing Berghaus aquafoil coat that's well over ten years old, I felt that I needed a change from synthetic technical clothing. Certainly man made fibres have their place and if I was shopping for kit to wear while hiking across the hills in foul weather and an ultra light waterproof was indicated, then I would give them serious consideration. For the moment I wanted something more traditional, in short a jacket that could stand up to the rigours of a British summer but would with a bit of layering serve through the winter quite happily as well.
My original requirement was fairly straightforward, a durable cotton or ripstop unlined (or at least uninsulated) windproof jacket with double ended zip, decent sized pockets, waist and hem drawstrings and either a roll away or detachable hood. This sounded a lot like my old Combat 95 smock except that in this case what I did not want was any sort of camouflage which proved to be a sticking point. In fact my perfect jacket based on this requirement would probably have been a 1960 pattern British army smock, the last type to be issued plain green but apart from a few eBay originals, no one seems to make a modern reproduction of this particular garment. I think that this is a bit of a missed opportunity since in my opinion it is far superior to the M65 which I find deficient in the pockets department (hence I discounted one of those quite early on) but for which you cannot move should you do a web search on "field jacket"!Read more ›
The best part is the breath-ability. Its like air con for your skin, simply fresh. I call this my storm coat. Because when the storms hit (and we have major storms in Austria) there is no coat like it. It is almost a feat of engineering. I don't steam on the inside, no water gets in, no seams leak there is never any doubt about how it will perform.
The sleeves are nice and long, the hood deep, the pockets can fit a weekly food shop. It lovely against the skin. Yes after an hour of heavy rain it could theoretically get cold if its in contact with your skin but Gortex is also a cold membrane and honestly when the air is that cool i just have a fleece on anyway and then its no problem at all. Not rocket science really.
This is a great great coat for people who enjoy the outdoors.
