The PANTAVUS Jacket is Truly Versatile and Minimalist
Fully waterproof, windproof and breathable jackets made with eVent Fabric Technology to keep you dry in all weather conditions. Designed with hideable and deployable features for any activity. 100% Made in Canada while backed by a 10 Year Warranty.
The PANTAVUS jacket is a truly versatile jacket for active urban life – a jacket specifically designed for cold morning commutes, warm afternoon hikes, and evening workout sessions without compromising its minimalist style.
There are people who like waking up ready to take on the day. The ones who don't want to overthink about what to wear, but still be prepared for anything the day may bring.
At PANTAVUS, we set out to design for these people because we are these people. Our jackets are designed to maximize functionality and versatility. Jackets that have the technical prowess to brave a range of weather conditions, while fusing performance with style.
A hood large enough to fit over a helmet, with fastening straps that ensure the perfect fit over your head when you're not wearing one. The hood can be tucked away completely into the collar of your jacket, hidden behind an easily accessible invisible zipper.
REFLECTIVE BACK PANEL
The reflective panel extends down for added visibility when travelling outside in the dark and also offers extra protection against water splashing. When unused, the panel can be folded back and hidden entirely within the bottom part of the jacket.
SNAP DOWN CUFFS WITH REFLECTORS
Reflectors stay concealed regularly but can conveniently snap down when needed for extra wrist protection and visibility. The cuffs are made of BEMIS glue that holds its shape, removing the need for velcro.
BODY SPECIFIC SHAPING
The jackets are designed separately for the distinct male and female bodies for total comfort and the perfect fit. The sleeves have articulated shaping which allows maximum range of motion for any activity.
WATERPROOF FRONT AND BACK POCKETS
All outer pockets are secured with waterproof YKK Aquaguard zippers. The back pocket is large enough to fit most tablets and notepads. There are also two hidden chest pockets inside of the jacket for extra storage.
Each jacket weighs less than 350g - less than a can of pop. The jacket also rolls into itself for convenient packing - smaller than your typical lunch bag.
MADE IN CANADA
Our commitment is to quality and craftsmanship of the highest standards. That is why all of our jackets are fully manufactured in our factory here in Vancouver, CANADA. We collaborate and work with local designers, pattern makers, sewers and technical professionals who have years of experience in the field.
Our jackets are made with eVent fabric technology – billions of microscopic pores are built into their proprietary membrane that works instantly to release water vapors, such as sweat, built up inside the jacket. Direct Venting™ technology allows it to be both fully waterproof and breathable whether it is dry or wet.
All our jackets are thoroughly tested for waterproofness, breathability and windproofness. eVent fabrics confirms the following:
- WR: 20k with JIS 1092 method A; AATCC test method 127
MVTR: 15k-20k with JIS L 1099 B2
FULLY SEAM SEALED
Our jackets are fully seam sealed and are truly waterproof, unlike many other jackets that are advertised as waterproof, which are in fact, only water resistant. Often, manufacturers will use waterproof fabrics but neglect to seal stitched seams, which lets water penetrate through the holes.
10 YEAR WARRANTY
We stand by our quality and that is why all of our products are backed with a 10 year PANTAVUS warranty. This warranty fully protects your jacket against defects in materials and workmanship – send it back to us, we'll either repair it, or replace it, and return it to you.
All jackets are available in 6 color options. We will message you after the campaign ends for your choice of color.

VERSATILE AND MINIMALIST
It's in the name. Our brand is a combination of Pan (Greek for all) + SUVAT (equations of motion). We flipped the acronym to TAVUS, just as our products challenge conventionality with its range of functions and unique style.
PANTAVUS was founded in 2016 in Vancouver by Eric Leong, an engineering graduate, turned small garment factory owner (manufacturing for over 10 years). The brand was not born from any singular event, but rather, formed as a creative outlet to feed an obsession with problem solving, bringing different ideas together to simplify life. It is the avid need to understand our surroundings and conquer it that constantly inspires us to find better solutions for life.
We have been making big brand jackets and premium quality clothing for over 10 years in our factory. During this time, we developed the highest manufacturing standards and learned the best practices from many multinational and reputable brands before circling around to designing our own products.
One of the major challenges of being a clothing manufacturer is to minimize waste and our design philosophy is driven by our commitment to the environment and our surroundings. This is why we aspire to make clothing that lasts and is supported with a 10 Year Warranty.
