This sale is for a Snowsled Ventile Smock in green, size large. This is a classic, versatile piece of kit designed for serious outdoor use pretty much all year round.
I have had it from new for about 15 years. It was made by a firm called Snowsled, now sadly no longer in existence, which made equipment and clothing for polar expeditions. This smock was made and designed for extreme conditions with top notch materials and workmanship. As can be seen from the pictures, there green Ventile fabric is slightly faded and worn slightly around the hem and end of the sleeves. There is a small cut on the front near the base and a couple of small marks on the back.There is a very faint stain under the right hand front zip which can just be seen in the picture. Overall, though, this is wear and tear from normal usage - the item has many more good years left in it. The zips are all in perfect condition.
The material is a single layer of genuine cotton Ventile. It is wind proof and water resistant but not water proof - a prolonged downpour will penetrate eventually.
It layers perfectly with a Swandri or similar wool top, a combo that keeps the wearer warm regardless. It has velcro closures at the wrists, an elastic pull cord around the hem (so it can be worn long or short), two zipped chest pockets and a generous adjustable hood with wired brim (it can be worn with a climbing helmet). There is a wind baffle behind the 3/4 length zip. It measures 68cm pit to pit which gives loads of room for layering and allows free movement. I have used it all year round for everything from forestry surveys to winter mountaineering.
What's the design benefit of a smock? There is less opportunity for wind to penetrate, so ideal for the arctic. The item "Snowsled Ventile Smock.
