The ultimate waxed cotton jacket! The BIRDSVILLE JACKET is built using our 5 oz. MicroWax oilcloth cotton canvas making it an ultra-light shower proof jacket. Features a fully adjustable hood that can be tailored to your head and when not in use rolls up to form a collar. Double storm plackets that snap closed encase the front zipper. The bottom front pockets are also designed so there is no leakage with their zipper openings covered by storm welts. Elastic cuffs softly hug the wrists with tabs for added adjustment. A draw cord running through the hem adds further insulation. The jacket body is fully lined with a fine mesh and features large internal front storage pockets. The arms are cotton lined for comfort. For colder days, the lining is fitted with small loops to incorporate any one of Kakadu's optional button-in liners.
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.
