Oilskin has the ability to survive rough treatment from work environments that would ruin most other clothing, while being totally waterproof, windproof and warm.

Oilskin coats have become the ultimate in harsh weather protection, sailors and bikers alike don't want to be caught without it, but let's get to the story behind this wonderful product.
