    Anyone know of a way to get jackets made of these materials in the USA versus UK?

    Nikwax Analogy Waterproof seems to only be used by Paramo and the Ventile by a few UK companies. Is there some reason why we can't get them here?

    The only Ventile I found in the US was an Orvis jacket that I had to return. If you're American shaped, then I suppose you might like their jacket: my size Medium had a 54" chest/waist and 36" sleeves, despite their own sizing chart claim of a 38-40" chest.

    JLPowell is the only other Ventile I've seen, and it's only pants thus far.

    I wouldn't be afraid to order something from the UK: we always seem to think we're in another dimension without interchange, but i've been ordering from Sweden and the UK for a couple of years without any hitches, and often as quickly as within the states. You'll want to be sure you understand their sizing and ordering requirements, but that mental boundary we've developed is artificial.
