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.

  1. Versatile Vernor Vest
    100%
    This vest is absolutely perfect. I live in North Queensland and our winters are not particularly cold, but when we it does get chilly or when we take our camper van out away from home, the weather is such that it is too hot for a jacket and too cold for just a shirt. The Vernor vest is a perfect compromise, leaving your core nice and warm while not covering your arms and leaving you sweating. Being a classy design also makes it not out of place wearing it somewhere formal or to work when it is chilly. The construction is very sturdy and the zippers are designed very tough with plenty of storage space if you need it. I would not hesitate to recommend this jacket to anyone and everyone who is looking for a warm piece of winter clothing but without the bulkiness or insulation of a full jacket or coat. Thank you for a value for money product that functions, looks and performs exactly as it is stated on your site.

  2. Makes a great work vest
    100%
    A very well made product. High quality finish for all seams, quality stud buttons and, a heavy duty zipper. Love the colour. When I purchased it, I thought it might be more of a “fashion” layer that gave me some wind protection when outside. I was surprised and, happy to find, that this product makes a great work vest. The fabric is durable, windproof and warm; while maintaining maximum range of movement in the arms, via the well sized arm openings, ensuring that I don't get a cold back whenever I reach for something or twist my torso. At the end of this purchase and, the excellent customer service on another product I recently purchased, I have spent another $300 with Driza in the ten days since I bought the vest. Great work Drizabone.
