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.

Iconic product that arrived quickly.This was a gift for our son for his 10th birthday. He was SUPER excited to tear off the paper and see a Drizabone box. The coats sizing is really good, true to the measurements on site. Service was great, delivery was 2 days... Fantastic!! Overall......an iconic product that arrived quickly, no drama, no fuss, just like an Aussie should be!
Completely satisfied with my jacketI have recently purchased the Driza Bone oilskin jacket. Although I have only had the occasion to wear it a few times I am completely satisfied with the product. One of the most outstanding feature is the generous cut of the jacket. The jacket is very roomy and comfortable to wear even when working. In my view a very good purchase. I must also add that the sales staff and point of contact were very helpful indeed. I will be recommending Driza-Bone products to my friends. Thank You Garry Prince
Can't fault itI find it hard to find fault with any product that I have ever purchased from this business. My recent purchase of their "rokeby" shirt is no exception. I will continue to purchase Driza-Bone products until a better alternative comes along. I think I could be waiting a long time. Well done to Driza-Bone.
Great birthday presentI purchased this coat for my sons birthday. It goes where he goes - never goes out the door without it. I think he may like it! Thanks very much for your assistance. Rhonda
Tough coatsI have a friend who unfortunately lives on the streets of New York. It's a tough place to live so he needs a tough coat to help him survive. We bought him the riding coat and we will be taking it to him next month. I've used these coats while camping and horse riding so I know how tough they are. I'm sure it will serve him well.
Great jacket!Great jacket!
