In 1898 a British Sailor Emilius Le Roy envisioned an all-weather, indestructible jacket made of old recycled ship sails that were treated with oil. His first iteration that was dubbed the first ‘Driza-Bone’ unfortunately was pretty flammable due to the use of linseed oil. 

Later, T.E Pearson who was the son of E.J Pearson and the founder of Pearson Soap brought a consignment of LeRoy coats to Australia to rework the proofing process. It is this excellent formula that we still use to proof our coats today. 

Since 1898, Driza-Bone has become an Australian Icon being worn not only by stockmen but by politicians such as John Howard and George W Bush; Rockstars and models like Kate Moss and by the everyday Australian.

Whether it’s wearing one to drove a mob of sheep across the central plains or throwing one on to keep dry at the footy, there’s nothing more quintessentially Australian than wearing a Driza-Bone. 

Our traditional Oilskin coats and jackets are made from sturdy 100% cotton that is coated with our uniquely formulated oil and wax finish to give the Oilskin its distinctive weatherproof and breathable character. As a specialised garment, the Driza-Bone Oilskin fabric needs special attention to maintain its weatherproofing qualities.

You can learn how to look after your Driza-Bone on our Garment Care page.

  3. Pockets not secure enough
    60%
    Hi Guys Recently bought the bushman jacket. Sorry not good enough for the price. two major issues that need resolve. The hood is terrible, too large, un adjustable 'practically' a waste of time. Needs a strap on the back at least to adjust for the size of head. The pockets on the side barely fit your hand in and prone to stuff falling out. Pockets on the front need fold over flaps on top and on the front also for stuff being prone to falling out and additional flap for added weather protection. Your sincerely Sasha

  4. Well made, durable and comfortable
    100%
    Well made durable and comfortable. Sleeve elastic could be a little tighter or have an adjustable tab to tighten around the wrist . Very heavy but this is to be expected as the materials used are heavy duty.

  8. A lifelong customer from the US
    100%
    Before buying my jacket, I spent a couple weeks in contact with the Drizabone team in order to make sure of my purchase. They were incredibly helpful and patient in responding to my concerns about sizing and shipping overseas, and I am very grateful for their accurate information! I shipped my Bushman jacket to the West Coast of the United States on the express courier method and it arrived a mere five days later. As for the jacket, I couldn't be more pleased. I chose one size larger in order to accommodate a sweater underneath, and it is the perfect fit. I have tested it in wind, snow, and pouring rain and indeed remained dry as a bone. It's a fairly warm jacket on its own, although for winter time I definitely require an extra layer of warmth. I'm excited to test it out in the rains of Ireland this coming spring! Thank you everyone at Drizabone for all your help — you have a lifelong customer with me!

  9. Good design and excellent workmanship
    100%
    Prefer it to the padded jackets you offer. Suits the climate in New Zealand and I am sure it is the best option in Australia. Doesn't get cold enough to need a padded jacket. Good design and excellent Australian workmanship. Thanks
