Outback Trading Company Re-Creates Arcadia Oilskin Collection with Inspired Designs
Outback Trading Company is adding a twist of innovative modern styling to their
trusted oilskin garments. The company’s Arcadia Oilskin collection is better than ever – featuring the same
quality and waterproof properties customers have come to count on. At the same time the material is lighter
weight and the styles are fun and useful for both men and women.
The variety of jackets and vests offered in this collection allows men and women to look stylish and stay
protected whether on a trail, at a horse show or out on the town. These garments feature quality oilskin ranging
from the extremely light 5oz. to a mid-weight 8oz. and the heaviest and most durable, 12 oz. Versatility is the
premier quality of this collection. There are jackets that are short, fashionable and perfect for English-riding
enthusiasts; jackets that are longer for working around a barn; garments that roll-and-pack into their own selfcontained
backpack for convenience; and a full length duster offering optimum protection.
“Outback Trading Company has expanded over the last decade, offering our customers fashionable
outerwear in innovative fabrics, however it’s our trusted oilskins that have truly stood the test of time,” said
Wilson King, president of Outback Trading Company. “The Arcadia Collection is unique because it combines
both the contemporary trend of lighter weight fabrics and flattering cuts with the traditional durability and
protection that oilskins provide.”
The collection’s premium item is the traditional Outback Duster that has been revamped with innovative
new styling details. This garment is now available in four colors, has an updated lining, a Nubuck leather collar
and provides unmatchable protection. Other noteworthy features include a large detachable cape, flannel-lined
cargo pockets and hand warmers, two inside chest pockets, and a drawstring waist. These are just a few of the
many features of this jacket.
English riders will especially love the comfort and waist-length styling of the extremely lightweight
New Market Jacket and Oilskin Quilted Vest. These garments are beautifully contoured, giving women a
flattering look both in and out of the saddle. The carefully crafted, quilted design gives these outerwear a
classic equestrian look.
Riders of all disciplines cannot get enough of the oilskin Backpackable Parka. This unique, lightweight
jacket folds into its own self-contained backpack for convenience while on a trail or traveling.
Men and women can complete their outfit with a pair of 8 oz. lined oilskin chaps. These full-length
chaps provide superior leg protection. Oiled Nubuck at the top provides a sturdy anchor for buckles and an
adjustable back strap.
The Arcadia Collection offers men and women a vast array of garments that are innovative, stylish,
durable and very useful. Some of the other the items in the collection include the Swagman jacket, the
Northwest Anorak jacket, the Oxford Jacket, Ladies Walkabout Jacket, Southwest Jacket and the Quamby Bush
Jacket. Each garment features its own unique fashion details and looks great whether working around the barn
or out on the town. Each jacket also varies in weight from 5 oz. to 12 oz. depending on its design and wearing
