Packable, Waterproof Garments a Must for Trail Enthusiasts

Western Tack Press Release

Oxford, PA - You never know what the weather will bring. On a long pleasure ride or in a tough endurance competition, sudden showers and brisk breezes can end the fun quickly if youre not prepared. Thats why Outback Trading Company, makers of the original Outback Oilskin Duster, created packable dusters and parkas. These unique garments fold easily into their own pouches and unfold to provide waterproof protection in any weather.

The idea with this line of outerwear is to provide light weight, portable garments for riders who face either tough weather, or just the occasional light drizzle, said Wilson King, president of Outback Trading Company. Not only do these coats fit the bill, but they look really great too. Youd never know they could pack down so small!

Perfect for spring and summer, the Nylon Backpackable Parka and Backpackable Duster are made from ripstop nylon with a waterproof finish. Both roll into their own built-in backpacks for easy trail toting. Outback finishes the waterproof ensemble with the Nylon Packable Rainpant, which can be zipped into its own pocket.

The Oilskin Backpackable Parka and Duster also stow into their own self-contained backpacks, easily carried over any trail. Both coats are made from a lighter, four ounce oilskin, which makes them easy to tote while still offering waterproof protection. The material looks luxurious and drapes beautifully. Each garment has a lockable drawstring waist, two-way zippers protected by snapover storm plackets, zippered pockets, a roll-up hood in the collar, and adjustable cuffs. The duster has a center back gusset while the shorter parka has snap open side vents.

These garments really are essential gear for riders in any environment, said King. They provide an easy way to stay comfortable and dry so youll enjoy your ride even more.
