Nelson Jacket in Black

  • Been around since they first started riding motor bikes in some form or another, there is sure to be terms that I use to describe the MicroWax Oilcloth NELSON JACKET that you may never have heard before, so this will test your imagination. Think about this description on the front closure: double front storm plackets stop water penetration through the front brass zip; top placket snaps down over the under placket which is designed to roll forward and form a drainage gutter channeling both wind and water out at the jacket bottom; and hook & loop collar tab stops collar slapping. The jacket boasts pleated elbows; gusseted cuff vents with snap down adjustable tabs; full shoulder to waist back riding pleats for ease of arm movement; and a removable waist belt. At the top right hand is a snap down flap that covers a welted zip that is set into a bellowed patch pocket. The left side is for gloves so the pocket is designed for ease of entry, set on a forward angle and is again a double snap flap, covering a larger bellow pocket bag. The higher side of the flap is gusseted to stop water from entering the pocket. The two large bottom pockets are again different. Double snap fasten the extra-long flaps that form part of the closure to the bellowed envelope pockets. The Nelson is fully lined in 100% cotton, stencil printed, with two internal security pockets.

    Understanding MicroWax
    Products made using our MicroWax cloth are as tough as they come - 100% waterproof, windproof & breathable. Since the blend is not water soluble, any incidence of water to touch it simply runs straight off. The use of a super tight weave of cotton canvas ensures that it is completely windproof. The breathability arises from the fabric's crystalline structure which varies and aligns with an increase of body heat, thereby allowing sweat in the form of water vapour to escape.

    To clean your MicroWax oilcloth garment, simply wipe or hose down with tepid water, then hang to dry in a cool, well ventilated area out of direct sunlight.

    Do NOT use hot water, machine wash or dry clean. Don't use any soap or detergents and don't force dry in front of any heat source.

    Oilcloth garments should be reproofed every 2-3 years depending on wear, using Kakadu's MicroWax Reproofing Cream.
