We took our nice new oilskin and stone washed the hell out of it for a few hours, made it look as if it had been around for a decade or so to give it that look of experience that only comes with time. We call this "Scrubbed oilskin". The KINGS CROSS JACKET is styled after one of our old hunting coats, where the brass zip runs up into the collar and the top storm placket buttons both sides at the collar to form a storm collar tab. Added protection comes from the second under placket, removable draw corded hood, reinforced shoulder panels, and gusseted vents on the cuff. Back action pleats, draw cord on the waist and a large game bag fill the back. The front hosts cowhide hand warmer welts above the bottom bellow patch pockets that are flap and tack button down. These pockets also come with the traditional side entry pockets. Cotton lined and stencil printed with wicker lining around the bottom, and an additional five more internal pockets.
- Outer: MicroWax Oilcloth 100% Cotton
Linings: (Upper Body) 100% Cotton, (Lower Body) 100% Polyester

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.
