    Care of Australian Riding Coats:

    Waxed cotton should never be washed with soap or detergent, nor dry cleaned. Rinse off dirt with cool water, or lightly brush off dry dirt. Rewax occasionally with reproofing compound such as Driza-Bone Garment, all over every year or two, more frequently on areas of wear, such as cuffs or sleeves.

    Driza-Bone

    Driza-Bone is an Australian icon in riding coats, much as Akubra is in hats, recognized not only in Australia but also throughout the world for quality, practicality and the Australian flair. The name Driza-Bone (Stryne for "Dry as a Bone") was registered in 1933, around the time the waxed cotton cloth was developed in Britain to replace the old cloth coated with linseed oil. We are pleased to offer the Driza-Bone Classic Riding Coats, made in Australia from heavyweight 100% cotton cloth woven in India and proofed in Australia.

    It is the materials, make-up, and detailing that sets Driza-Bone apart as the premier quality Australian riding coat, with a practical design developed on the basis of Driza-Bone's long experience. The material is the best heavy weight waxed cotton, tightly woven to hold out water but remarkably breathable. For strength, the fabric is woven from long-staple Egyptian cotton. Because it is a dense fabric, without the heavy wax fillers of a loose fabric, this material does not become excessively stiff in cold weather.

    Seams are critical in rain garments. The Driza-Bone seams are double stitched felled seams, rainproof and strong, sewn with waxed thread effectively filling in the sewing holes. Wear on seams from the sleeves rubbing against the body of the coat is avoided by running the seams up the outer side of the sleeves, and eliminating any side seam on the coat entirely.

    The shoulder cape is not to give extra water resistance on the shoulders; one layer of this waxed cotton fabric is sufficient. The cape is to prevent rain from cooling the inside layer on the shoulders, keeping this layer warmer and its breathability higher in the area where the coat lies close to the body so enhancing the comfort and protection of the coat. There is a flap over the top of the removable cape to prevent rain running down underneath. The storm collar is cotton on the inner side for comfort. The pocket flaps have snaps for security, and the handwarmer pockets are fully cotton lined. The waist has a drawstring. Sizing is generous throughout.
