Choosing the right layer for crisp spring mornings and chilly fall nights can be a challenge. Our Men's Ventum Shell is crafted to cut the breeze and trap warmth in your base layer or against your skin.

Ventum fabric strikes the right balance between cutting cold wind while still allowing enough breathability for sweat to escape when hiking on chilly mornings and evenings. Ventum fabric tests at 39.5 CFM under ASTM D-737.

It’s perfect for when a base layer alone is not enough, but insulation would make you overheat. Weighing under 47g this is a must-have item for when you plan to hike in cool weather.

  • Elastic at the back hem, and at the wrists to keep wind out.

  • Elastic at the hood for a snug fit around your face.  

  • Constructed from .51 oz/sqyd Ventum ripstop nylon. This fabric is tightly woven and heat calendared to cut the wind.

  • C0" Durable Water Repellent to resist rain spray and body moisture. C0 DWR contains no PFOA or PFOS.

  • Mosquito proof

  • Highly wind resistant

  • Excellent vapor transfer / breathability - comfortable to wear, not clammy

.51 oz/sqyd Ventum Ripstop Nylon

This super light, high quality, 7 denier fabric has a ciré finish on both sides and weighs in at just .51 oz/sqyd (17 g/m²).  Featuring a high quality "C0" durable water repellent (DWR), this ripstop and tear resistant material can also handle a light sprinkle but is not waterproof.

Ventum nylon cuts the wind while still allowing for excellent vapor transfer that makes the fabric highly breathable. With a soft texture, Ventum is not sticky or plasticky like some other fabrics in this weight range.

As the material is down and mosquito proof, it is an excellent choice for wind shell clothing and sleeping bag shells.
