Information About Our Fabrics • Country Innovation



Ventile® - a high quality 100% cotton fabric which was first developed during the Second World War for use in pilot's immersion suits. It has developed the reputation of being one of the most protective fabrics in the world, as the combination of the density of weave and the swelling properties of the fibres when wet provides excellent weather proofing. It is also highly breathable, durable and, unlike most synthetic fabrics, produces almost no noise when in use - a perfect choice for birdwatchers, bushcrafters and general country and outdoor enthusiasts. Click here for more information about Ventile®.

PrimaLoft® Gold - the highest performing insulation on the market for warmth, water resistance, softness and compressibility. PrimaLoft® Gold is an ultra-fine microfiber insulation that is as warm, soft and lightweight, and is warmer, wet or dry, than all other insulations. Ultra-fine fibres form tiny air pockets that trap body heat and keep the cold out. The result is immediate warmth without the bulk. PrimaLoft® Gold Microfibers are engineered for permanent water resistance and create tight surface tension that resists moisture penetration, resulting in an insulation that dries faster than goose down. Ultra-fine fibres mimic the compressibility of goose down and are breathable, allowing moisture vapour to be transported through the fibres and away from the skin.
