Here we have the Lowe Maintenance para top with midge veil with long sleeves, made from recycled green military parachute (rip stop nylon). Handmade in our workshop they are light weight and wind proof it is an awesome top for anyone in sports, forestry work, camping, game keeping, fishing, basically anyone outdoors!
Many of the midge veil tops are used by people who meet midges! If you work in and around areas with midges you’ll know how painful and what horrid nasty little beggars they are! This top with the midge veil allows you to keep working in those areas and not be eaten alive!
This long-sleeved version was requested by a Swedish ranger unit as they use canoes to get about and wanted the extra reach when they are paddling about this allows you to actively work and not become restricted.
The hood has Velcro fitted around the neck at the front, so it can be removed and left hanging as a hood behind you when not needed.
The design is no faff, simple and hard wearing it is a basic functional top, if your wanting a fashion item this probably isn’t for you, however we could start a trend between us!
It is an ideal base layer but most often used as an outer layer to keep the wind out. They are well known throughout the military services in the UK and aboard and highly sort after.
The front pouch is its own carry case, basically fold it in on itself and it becomes a much smaller item to transport.
We have one with us all the time and find them an essential piece of kit in the training due to the sites and activities we carry out.
