Long Rider 3-in-1 Oilskin Coat
What we have here is not your regular piece of kit—it's your trusty sidekick good for every wild journey. They say a dog is a bloke's best friend, but let us introduce you to the Long Rider 3-in-1 Coat, a garment that's bound to be your ultimate companion, no matter what the elements chuck at you.
Crafted from the legendary Aussie Oilskin, this coat is as tough as a croc's rear and built to withstand the most grueling of expeditions. With corduroy collar, brass hardware, and a detachable cape, the Long Rider means business. Snap it down with double storm plackets, and know you're covered with the snap closed back fantail and flap-covered patch pockets with side entry.
But hold onto your wallabies, because this coat isn't just about durability—it's a true chameleon of style and function. Need it shorter? Roll and snap it into a 3/4 jacket. Feeling like popping to the Antarctic? Convert it into coveralls that'd make even Douglas Mawson jealous. This coat can change its tune faster than a Bali cover band!
The Long Rider has got more tricks up its sleeves than a swagman's got songs. Button-in liner facility? You bet. Rein guards and riding leg straps? Oh yeah, we've thought of everything. Adjust the drawcord waist, snap those cuffs just right, and you're ready to face the unknown with unmatched style and confidence.
Now, for the artistic flair - an authentic Kakadu Legends map lining that traces the heritage of our family company and your own journey as an intrepid explorer. You see, this coat isn't just a piece of clothing; it's an Aussie icon, a part of the landscape as vast and untamed as the outback itself.
So, whether you're battling rain, blazing sun, or tackling the untamed bush, gear up with the Long Rider 3-in-1 Coat. Trust us, it's more than just a coat—it's your companion, your confidant, your partner-in-crime as you take on the great Aussie wilderness.

Had mine for over two years now and I almost look forward to rainy weather. As another reviewer says, the length keeps your legs dry in foul weather, especially when coupled with tall boots. Couple it with the attachable hood for nearly 100% weather protection. However do be aware that all this makes it heavy and quite warm. I love the stacked pockets too. Being canvas, repairs can be done yourself (if you have a heavy duty needle and thread) as can reproofing (you will need a lot of wax for an XXL!).
The one issue I have is the hard wear- as the jacket is heavy (mine is XXL), the brass poppers for the rain cape have a tendency to come apart when you pick the coat up, which is a nuisance (especially as they hold the hood on). Additionally the zip is flimsy on the inner pocket. More positive poppers and a stiffer zip would make the jacket perfect. I’d also love it if the hood was permanently fixed and could roll away into the collar - and the addition of a stiff peak would be good in driving rain. However these are “nice to haves” rather than problems.
Easy 5 stars
Purchased as a Christmas gift for overseas recipient. I expect it to perform well.j
Order was delivered seamlessly & efficiently.
had mine for all of 30 years ....still going strong
This is my second coat by Kakadu really satisfied
I Love these coats a mate convinced me to get an xl one 20 odd years ago. It has been to many festivals and camping trips in that time and served me very well. They are warm enough to use as a blanket in a pinch. I got a xxl this time as I wanted a little more length to the coat and the quality is as I remember my first one being. I also used this jacket as part of my fire twirling act it allows me to completely cover my suit of armour so I can get into position with out being seen it's very versatile and I can't recommend it enough!!
