Australian Oilskin Dusters

In the USA, came a movie: "The Man From Snowy River".   That started the craze for oilskin dusters here.  The first ones we carried were really oil-skinned coats. The waterproofing got all over everything. We kept them in bags in the stores!  You see, these coats began as torn sails on ships that were sewn into protective clothing, and then using oil, tar, pitch, or whatever would keep the weather out of the ships was applied to the canvas fabric. The doubled shoulder was to give extra protection on your topside as that is where most water came over the sides of your vessel.

Australia, San Francisco, ports all over began to see these really useful waterproof coats. As popularity grew, coats were made from the canvas, and didn't even have to sail above in the winds first. Today, Microwax waterproofing (duckback dressing) is the norm. Just rub some on again every now and then to maintain the wax between the fibers of cotton to keep dry. I like to apply heat from a hair dryer, held a foot or so away, and watch the wax run into the fabric. Then apply another coating or good measure. (Probably overkill!) 

What has come to pass is that men and women have realized that the coat looks great on you. And is very functional in outdoor environments. And no longer stains "Aunt Mary's white parlor couch".  Bleeding is minimal. So they make a wonderful coat for kids too. Great to play in, And easy to repair if a tear does happen. 

    When the wind is blowing a drizzling rain around the countryside, you will have the protection you need.  The  layered shoulder cape billows softly as you ride, with a double protection against harsh weather.  Feel the fabric pull closely to your legs, yet, feel no rain in your boots.  The rain is rolling from the backside of your cantle, not into your fanny, because the saddle gusset is working to your advantage.  Whether hiking, camping, or riding, you'll feel like you own the wilderness in your rugged oilskin clothing!

Duck Back Dressing

An occasional application of DuckBack Dressing will prolong the appearance and performance of Outback's Oilskin and Cracked Wax garments.  This is the dressing used to waterproof the cotton fabric of the coats.  Rub a dab of it into the fabric with a circular motion in several light coats. (tip: You can lightly, light heat, blow dry the Duckback into the fibers by using a hair dryer at a SAFE distance from the fabric; and just watch it melt into the seams! Warning: Too close and you'll damage everything. Just hold it the same distance as would not burn the back of your hand.)

Only $14.99!
