The Bushman Jacket is the perfect jacket for braving the elements, for both work and leisure. The jacket has a traditional Driza-Bone protective cape over the shoulders, as well as a drawcord through the waist. A detachable hood and storm cuffs will keep all weather out, leaving you warm, dry and comfortable. Double patch pockets with bellows can expand to hold your belongings and keep them secure with studded flaps to close. The Bushman jacket is made using traditional heavyweight cotton oilskin. This is treated with natural paraffin wax for excellent water resistance. It is lined in Driza-Bone's durable striped cotton twill. Made in Australia. FABRICATION: OUTER 100% cotton oilskin, LINING 100% cotton.
Over 115 years ago, British sailor Emilius Le Roy imagined the concept of indestructible wet weather gear made from recycled ship sails and treated with linseed oil. After constructing a batch of coats and having them consigned to Australia, they quickly became favoured by sailors who had gone on to work the land as stockmen. From here, the legendary oilskin coat was born, and would go on to become the renowned all-weather coat and Australian workwear staple.
Today, the Driza-Bone range covers apparel for all conditions – both indoors and out. As a 100% Australian-owned company, Driza-Bone prides itself on providing quality outdoor gear for Australians to protect them in all environments.
