HERITAGE

Parents of 14 children in outback Australia, Richard & wife Catherine Whillas constructed their own oilskin cloth using a 'wringer mangler' and a combination of oils and waxes found on the local land. Known for it's functionality & durability, oilskin cloth would be ideal for everyday use for their family against the harsh Australian bush.

Eventually they and 5 sons would together begin manufacturing outerwear garments for Australians then worldwide. These products would fall under the name "Kakadu Traders Australia".

Nearly 50 years on and in it's third generation of Whillas family, Kakadu supplies tough, reliable products to over 50 countries around the world. Strong canvas, refined oils & waxes and rugged cowhide are amongst the raw materials that give our products the guts to get the job done time & time again.

From overshirts to fitted ones, from hunting jackets to fishing vests, from Men's garments to Women's, Kakadu makes products for a variety of functions so its near impossible to have a single size chart for all garments. The following is a guide based on body measurements and will help you to determine which Kakadu size will best fit you.
