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.

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.

have outback full length coat and car coat
product quality has never been an issue but this vest was a little disappointing. From description my husband would have been a medium but I ordered large. Large was a just fit on a 40 chest and the body length is far too short. Needs to have more backside coverage!

This vest was well made , my husband loved the 7 pockets.

By Jude

from Fowlersville, Pa.

Comments about Outback Oilskin Vest:

My husband generally wears an X-Large in his vest which fits comfortably and has room for a heavy shirt to be worn under it. This vests was too small in the shoulders and the chest.

I was pleased that it didn't take long for the return to be credited to our account.

      Gave this to my husband for a gift and he loves it. He uses it for work (tractor-trailer driver) and also when running errands on his days off. It is almost like he lives in it. It looks fantastic on him too.
