As spring’s wet, muddy season peaks just around the
corner, Outback Trading Company recommends their exclusive nylon packables. These
garments offer ultimate convenience with their ability to roll into a built-in backpack or
pocket to go anywhere, anytime. Both men and women can easily stay protected from
unexpected showers with Outback’s nylon backpackable parka, duster and rainpant.
Made of polyester rip-stop nylon with a DWR finish, this line of waterproof
raingear is incredibly durable and practical. Ideal for urban or suburban travel, packables
can easily be carried in a briefcase, suitcase, golfbag or saddlebag. All garments are
machine washable and available in black, gold, navy, red and taupe. They are available
for men and women and range in sizes from XS-XXL.
“Outback’s intention with these packable products was to hone in on simplicity
and ease for our active customers,” said Wilson King, president of Outback Trading
Company. “Most people do not have room to pack anything extra, like raingear.
However, with these high-performance garments people can have protection while
having extra space in their suitcases.”
When spring is in the air, it is not unusual for the skies to open one second and the
sun to be shining the next. The nylon backpackable duster and parka are the perfect
answers – simply unzip from their built-in backpacks, shake out and stay dry. Both items
feature a zipper plus storm panel front closures, adjustable velcro cuffs and zippered side
pockets. For added protection, a stowaway hood can be drawn tightly around the head
with its lockable elastic drawcord. And, for a more fashionable silhouette, each jacket
sports a drawstring waist. The full-length duster features a center back gusset, while the
parka has snap open rear gussets.
The nylon packable rainpant is offered in a range of colors to coordinate with the
parka and duster. This waterproof pant features an elastic waist that is drawstring
adjustable. It also sports a mesh-lining throughout and has a wide leg opening that fits
over most footwear. In addition, there are bottom snaps for the option of a closer fit
around the ankle. These pants are ideal to slip on over breeches or jeans while trying to
remain dry and clean at a horse show or around the barn. And, they roll into their own
