For the dry Australian outback and the extreme weather of New Zealand’s South Island, rugged work gear like this oilskin canvas vest is essential. Its wax-impregnated material resists rain through years of hard wear. Seven outer pockets, including two hand-warmer pockets, keep all of your essentials comfortably at hand. One inner pocket is perfect for wallet, passport, or MP3 player. Snaps at the waistband and a zip closure with snap-over storm flap keep the wind out. Flannel lined with a nubuck leather-lined collar.


100% cotton. Imported. Men’s sizes M (40-42), L (44-46), XL (48), XXL (50-52).


Use a soft brush to remove any dirt. The jacket can be spot-cleaned with a damp sponge and cool water, but using detergent or dry cleaning will destroy the waterproof treatment.


Check for dry patches periodically, especially in high-friction areas like neck and shoulders. If the fabric looks and feels dry, or if you notice leaking, the coat can be reproofed with a paraffin wax. How often the vest will need reproofing depends on how heavily it's worn. An average time frame is once every five years. Search online for "reproofing oilskin" for materials and how-tos.

    Comments about Outback Oilskin Vest:

    As far as the wax cotton, this is the real deal.The zipper is not leather jacket quality but better then expected plus it has a built-in pull tab and is a two-way zipper not mentioned in the catalog.The collar is a soft leather on the neck side only.The fit (med.)was fine for me. This is not a vest to be worn with just a shirt under. It is made to be worn over a light jacket or heavy wool sweater so the fit must be a little large.The lenth is long enough to conceal a hip mounted fire arm for those of you that have a C.C.P. It came with two spare snaps ( a nice touch ).The inside lining is flannel with polyester fill for a little warmth.The inside pocket is zippered and of a good size. Also on the inside is an embossed leather-like sewn in" garment care" label.My only "con" is that I wish at least one of the top three pockets on the front were deeper.

    Comments about Outback Oilskin Vest:

    Just got back from a ride near San Diego across the desert to Big Bend National Park, Texas. The weather was moderate, but got a little hot the last couple of days. I wore it often under my leather jacket and then as the day warmed I shed the jacket. It is now my favorite vest. cb

              I received this vest as a Christmas gift. It's been very comfortable; great fit and well made. The unique properties of oilskin are interesting as well. I expect to get many years of service from it.
